23.08.2022 / Sunday, August 28th, 2022 marks the 44th anniversary of the International Mountain Road Race up the Kitzbüheler Horn and holds excitement in store.
Challenging sports tradition
One of the most famous mountain runs in Austria is coming up again. Organized by Koasalauf legend Franz Puckl and part of the prominent "Salomon Running Tour" race series since 2009, the athletic competition brings together top athletes from all over the world to measure their strength. The run demands a lot: On a course with a total length of 12.9 kilometers and a gradient of up to 25 percent, 1,234 meters of altitude are waiting to be conquered in best time. The starting signal will be given on Sunday, August 28th, 2022 at 9.00 a.m. in Kitzbühel's city center, from where it will go up via the Römerweg to the panorama road at the foot of Kitzbühel's local mountain. Over countless serpentines and past the Alpenhaus, the destination of the summit is finally reached with the TV station at 1,996 meters. A grandiose view at the end is thus guaranteed. Spectators at the start and finish areas as well as along the course are also welcome to cheer on the runners.
