Just the ones who are able to do all three days of the “Tour de Tirol” in less than 9 hours have the possibility to apply for the Kaiserkrone Jolsport Elite Run. The distribution of the starting numbers and a short briefing will take place on 6th July 2018 while having dinner together. (the meal and 1 drink are included in the registration fee)

Total price money for women (first to third place) EUR 1.600,00
The starter with the closest time to the average time will get EUR 300,00 and the winner of another EUR 200,00 will be drawn among the participants who reach the finish line.
The route leads along the Kaiserkrone, normally a 5-days hut-to-hut trekking tour, around the Wilder Kaiser range. Our top-runners will do the 58 kilometres and 3500 metres altitude difference in just one day with just one refreshment stop.
