Vertical Open

The Vertical Open is not just the Prologue for the adidas INFINITE TRAILS World Championships on Sunday, but also an open hill climb for everyone who wants to put on their running shoes and burn off energy after work on Friday at 5:00 pm.

A breathtaking route (19km, 1.500 vertical metres) right up to the summit of the Stubnerkogel is waiting for you. Once you’ve reached the top, you’ll be able to enjoy a totally unique after-race party. When have you ever been able to party on a mountain until midnight? It’s just the right combination of sport and partying to kick off a magnificent weekend. Be there and celebrate Friday evening with us until midnight, when the last cable car will take you back down into the valley.

For the adidas INFINITE TRAILS World Championships teams, it is mandatory to compete in the Vertical Open as a Prologue, because the order in which the teams start on Sunday and the intervals between their start times (chasing start) will be determined using their placings in the Prologue. But you can also register as an individual competitor for the Vertical Open. The start fee is EUR 33.00.
