The trendy sport of trail running takes on a whole new side in the high mountains of Paznaun.
The four villages in the region, Galtür, Ischgl, Kappl and See, are surrounded by high alpine peaks beyond the 2,500-metre mark, which not only impress with their rugged cliffs, but also entice with lush green mountain meadows. This area is also home to the Paznaun High Trail, which circles the entire flank in and out of the valley over a distance of 120 kilometres and is now the new venue for a trail running competition.
The stages from See via Kappl and Ischgl to Galtür are sometimes short and pleasant, sometimes long and challenging, and this variety is also reflected in the new event format, the Paznaun Ischgl Ultra Trail, or PIUT for short.
Just as the Paznaun High Trail connects the villages of the valley, the PIUT connects extreme athletes and mountain running amateurs in a colourful sporting competition. With distances from 20 to 85 kilometres, PIUT CAMP, PIUT EXPO, PIUT TEN for charity and PIUT KIDS RUN, two days of fun and excitement are guaranteed!
You can choose between the PIUT 20, PIUT 30 and PIUT 50 on the route between Kappl, Galtür and Ischgl. The highlight for ultras is the PIUT 85, which leads from See via Kappl and Galtür to Ischgl and thus through the entire Paznaun.
For all those who prefer to take it easy and do something good at the same time, the PIUT TEN is the best challenge.
The younger running pros compete best in the PIUT KIDS RUN, which takes place in three different lengths.
