The GORE-TEX Transalpine-Run, one of the toughest and at the same time most spectacular trailrun events in the world, celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2014.
The race, comprising seven stages lasting from 2nd to 8th of September 2018, will start on the eastern route in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. From there the more than 300 teams will take on one of the last great adventures, crossing the Alps on foot, via Austria (stops in Nassereith, Imst, Pitztal and Sölden) and Italy. The route continues from St. Leonhard to the penultimate stop Sarnthein, before on the final day the runners cross the finish line in the city of Brixen, South Tyrol.
Since its first performance in 2005 the run developed rapidly into one of the most significant stage runs for teams worldwide, what is reflected in the top-class starter field as well as the strong media response. Teams from more than 40 nations provide yearly international atmosphere during the stages.
