Running Up That Hill – 11th Staging of Austria’s Silvretta Trail Run Open for Registration

Austria's Silvretta Trail Run

On 15 July 2023, trail runners and marathon pros will compete for the fastest time between Ischgl and Galtür at Silvrettatrailrun 3000. A total of €14,000 will be awarded as prize money. Registration is now open.

Four differently challenging routes head from Ischgl to Galtür at the 11th Silvrettatrailrun 3000 on 15 July 2023. Mountain running professionals can test their metal at the “marathon up a 3,000 metre peak”, i.e. the “hard” distance with 40.1 kms over 1,800 metres of altitude difference up the almost 3,000 metre Kronenjoch. If that is too strenuous, there are three varied, shorter trail running distances. At the finish line, the fastest athletes can look forward to total prize money of €14,000, which will be divided equally between men and women. In addition to the individual rankings over the four distances, prizes will also be awarded to the fastest teams and the largest group. The race is part of the “Austrian Mountain Running Cup 2023”.

Good to know: Anyone who takes part in the Silvretta Trail Run 3000 automatically donates five euros of their entry fee to the charity partner “Wings for Life”. Saving tip: Those who register by 1 March 2023 pay a reduced entry fee of 31 instead of 61 euros for the “Light” route and 41 instead of 71 euros for the “Medium” and “Hard” routes. All information and registration are now available at www.silvrettarun3000.com.

Galtür is the destination

Whether you are an experienced hobby athlete or a marathon runner – at the 11th Silvrettatrailrun 3000, all runners, depending on their fitness level, can choose one of four impressive trail running routes from Ischgl to Galtür. Stunning mountain scenery set in nature are included. In addition to the “Hard” route (40.1 kms and 1,800 metres in altitude), there is a choice of “Small” (11.2 kms and 306 metres in altitude), “Light” (19.36 kms and 873 metres in altitude) and “Medium” (29.9 kms and 1,482 metres in altitude). “The ongoing international popularity of the Silvretta Trail Run 3000 highlights that the event has become a popular date on the running calendar. And this year, once again the organisers are able to cater for all types of runners with four different demanding distances,” says TVB Managing Director Thomas Köhle. The classification of teams of four and groups will also remain the same: In the team classification, one participant competes on each course, the times are added up and the fastest team wins. The first three teams are rewarded with prize money. The challenge cup for groups is awarded to the largest group, regardless of time and distance.

Youngsters at the start

Mini athletes from the age of four can get their first taste of racing on the day before the Silvretta Trail Run 3000: divided into age groups, the youngsters will start on 14 July 2023 at the Silvretta Kids Run presented by Volksbank Tirol with start/finish in Galtür from 5 pm on the “Mini” (450 metres), “Midi” (1,000 metres) or “Maxi” (2,000 metres) courses. The most exciting thing is: Every participant will receive a medal and a small gift. The entry fee for kids is eight euros.


At the 11th Silvretta Trail Run 3000, participants will be supporting a charitable cause. How does it work? Five euros of the entry fee are automatically donated to the charity partner “Wings for Life”, which uses the money to support research projects and clinical studies worldwide to heal patients with injured spinal cords or paraplegia. The Silvretta Trail Run 3000 has been one of the “Bronze Partners” of “Wings for Life” since 2017.
