Telfes village in the Stubai Valley in Austria will once again host a World Master Mountain Running Championship, the second since 2014, which will take place between 3 and 5 September.
The long pause due to the pandemic, which has prevented the mountain and trail running calendar from being fulfilled, will end for those over 35, who will finally be able to return to the trail.
The doors to set a date for the World Cup were opened at the beginning of the summer by the Stubai Ultrarail, which was played smoothly on the same stage, which raised the confidence of the organizers to carry out the event on the planned date.
This is the 20th edition of the event that will also be open to athletes under the age of 35, who will run an open category event on September 4.
The calendar will open on September 3 with a race for children, another for charity and the Telfer Wiesen Run.
Master athletes participating in the World Cup can register freely, without needing to qualify.
“The many years of successful cooperation with the World Mountain Racing Association have been rewarded with the organization of this World Championship”, celebrated the Director of the Organizing Committee Andreas Stern. “When we had to cancel the event last year, the Association supported us, reserved us the prize of organizing it. It didn’t go elsewhere, it just took a year. “
The event will have a biosafety protocol already tested in the Stubai Ultrarail, based on constant tests and stimulation of vaccination.
