Event Description

THE ULTIMATE RELAY CHALLENGE

This unique and innovative race format sees pro and amateur runners compete side by side as relay teams of three (Women, Men, Mixed) to claim the adidas INFINITE TRAILS world title. First the runners complete a joint Prologue to determine their start slot for the relay race, which commences with a chasing start. Each team has to tackle a demanding, 120km+ long course (7000vm) consisting of three distinct loops (half marathon/ marathon/ ultra) that play to various running strengths. The time stops when the relay runners have raced the final kilometer together and cross the finish line as a team.

Although the three relay loops differ in distance and elevation gain, they all navigate amidst the famous "Hohe Tauern" on partly historic trails and across 2000m high peaks through the breathtaking alpine scenery of Austria's Gastein Valley.
