Trail running starts where other running routes end. Away from the roads and tarmac routes. And far-removed standard jogging routes. More than cross-country. And more challenging than 'straight forward'.
By trail running what we mean is a fascination and desire for running; re-interpreted. Trail running is trendy, smart and in keeping with the times. After all, as with other things in life, it is about forging your own paths and making new tracks. In Ötztal there are alreday lots of different, variety-packed trails of varying difficulty levels that proceed across gravel, pastureland and woodlands – awlays accompanied by the impressive mountain backdrop of the surrounding summits.
Ötztal offers beginners, those at an advanced level and experts alike with the best conditions and flowing trails!
