INNSBRUCK – HEAD OF STUBAI VALLEY

From the heart of Innsbruck over the Halsl into the Stubai Valley: the Stubai Ultratrail starts at the forecourt of the Landestheater in Innsbruck. From the city centre, the route leads on asphalt paths towards the ski jump at Bergisel, another monument of the Alpine metropolis. Then it goes via Natters up to the Muttereralm, alpine terrain opens up on the way to the Birgitzköpflhaus and on to the Halsl.

FRONT STUBAI – SCHLICK – STARKENBURGER HUT

On the short downhill from Halsl you have the mighty Serles, one of the Seven Summits in the Stubai, in view. Then it's a constant up and down on a very appealing trail via the Gloatsteig to the V3 Schlickeralm (1,644 m).


On the route of the legendary Schlickeralm run, a challenging ascent of the STUBAI ULTRATRAILS K67 begins up to the Sennjoch (2,240 m.), accompanied by the unique panorama of the Kalkkögel - also known as the Dolomites of North Tirol. If the weather is good, runners can expect an unforgettable sunrise and, if the visibility is good, a unique mountain panorama ranging from the Karwendel mountains to the Zillertal Alps and the mountains of the Gschnitztal Valley to the glaciers around the Zuckerhütl, the highest mountain in the Stubai.


However, you should not indulge in the beauty of the view for too long, as the following selective route again demands full concentration. Shortly after the huge "picture frame" - a popular photo point - the first long descent of the STUBAI ULTRATRAIL K67 begins over narrow, serpentine trails to the refreshment station at the Starkenburger Hütte (2,227 m). From there, the downhill run continues on a trail for around 1,200 metres in altitude to Neustift in the village centre near the church.

NEUSTIFT VILLAGE – VOLDERAU – BACHERWANDALM – FALBESONER NOCKALM – BÄNKENALM – MUTTERBERG

From the Neustift village square runners continue the track along the valley floor for about 9 kilometres to Volderau, where the next refreshment station is located at the Volderauhof. From there, a steep 420 m altitude difference has to be overcome to reach the Bacherwandalm (1,620 m).

From this cabin on runners can expect gradiose trails which meander through the forest at an altitude of between 1,600 and 1,800 metres with views of the glacier fields at the end of the Stubai Valley. The route leads past the Falbesoner Nockalm (refreshment station) before it descends into the valley floor shortly before the Bänkenalm. The WildeWasserWeg is the next highlight waiting for the runners. On a paved gravel path participants run along the stream, past thundering water masses, up to the Grawa waterfall, the widest waterfall of the Eastern Alps. Just one and a half kilometres further on, at the valley station in Mutterberg, the last stage begins, which is once again a tough one and demands all the remaining reserves of strength of the participants - the final ascent to the Stubai Glacier.

FINAL ASCENT TO THE STUBAI GLACIER

A final spurt in the kingdom of snow: for the last section, likely the biggest challenge of the STUBAI ULTRATRAIL K67, the runners have to muster all their strength again. A winding path leads from the glacier cable car’s base station near Mutterberg at 1,746 metres above sea level, past the Dresdner Hütte over rock, snow and ice to the finish at the mountain station Eisgrat (2,960 m).
