The GORE-TEX Transalpine-Run, one of the toughest and at the same time most spectacular trailrun events in the world, is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2019.
The race, comprising eight stages lasting from 31st of August to 7th of September 2019, will start on the Western route in Oberstdorf, Germany. From there the more than 300 teams will take on one of the last great adventures, crossing the Alps on foot, via Austria, Switzerland and Italy. On the final day the runners cross the finish line in Sulden, Italy.
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.
