Like for all sporting events the right gear is of great importance. Therefor we gathered a few tips and tricks for your:

  • Shoes: Spikes and shoes with dobbs are not allowed! We recommend running shoes with a solid profile.
  • Clothing: Since we hope for good weather we would recommend some shorts and a t-shirt. Kneepads or a knee-lenght shorts could prevent you from abrasions.
  • Gloves: We recommend you to at least wear biking-gloves. It will be easier on some obstacles!

We recommend to travel by public transport.

All informations regarding hotels you`ll find on our Hotel/Parken web page.

Here you go!

The time will be measured with a chip, which will be attached to your feet.

The results will be published one hour after the run is over.

We will award the 3 fastest women and men no matter their age, also the 3 fastest women, men and mixed teams (the 4 fastest in the team get the prize) and the best couple team wins a prize as well.

  • Altough the Linzathlon is about the physical challenge, the most important thing for us is fun and togetherness!
  • For every “Innsbruckathlon-Athlete” it´s a point of honor to conquer the obstacles in the regular way.
  • If one obstacle is not manageable for you, you circulate around it or if you leave the official route your results will be taken out of the tournament.
    (If you can`t cope with one obstacle you can still finish your run, but your result will be DNF.)
  • Unfair or unsportsmanlike manners will lead to disqualification!
  • Covering or demolishing of your start number will also lead to disqualification!
  • Instructions given by medical staff / securitys / police men etc. must be followed at all times!
  • Please: Act like real sportsman and sportswomen. If you see someone who needs your help – please do so!

Specific run and strenght training with coordinative elements is a good way to train for the Linzathlon. Run over rough and smooth and if you have the chance to, run the official Linzathlon route beforehand. Pull-ups and other strength exercises won’t hurt too.
