The starting gun for all runners is at 5.30am. Then the race for the quickest time is on. The route leads from Ginzling through the Floitental valley, ascending up to the Mörchnerscharte, which is the highest point of the trail. After this exhausting ascent of 1,870 altitude metres, the descent begins. Past the Schwarzsee lake and the Berliner Hut, you will run down through the Zemm Valley until you reach the finish line at the Gasthaus Breitlahner. Made it!
