The competition

Procedure and course

The Race is held as a team competition and is contested by 2 participants who form a team. The team members start one after the other from 2 different peaks and must reach the Fleisstal (finish) from there. The total time of the participants is added as the basis for the team award.

Procedure in detail

The first team member starts at the “Schareck” peak and takes a non-prepared ski route down into the Fleisstal. After arrival, a further 100 altitude metres must be mastered on foot or on skis – then the first run ends.

The second team member starts from the peak of Hochfleiss, the “Giaidtroghöhe” at an altitude of almost 3000 metres, as soon as their team buddy has completed the first run.


In “Glockner – The Race” there are four award categories:

  1. Team award:
    In the main category it is about the total team time – the fastest team wins!
  2. Fun award (optional):
    In the Glockner race, the athletes not only have the opportunity to prove their sporting skills. Those who feel like it are invited to be creative and to entertain the public! So put on your best outfit and join in the fun award category!
  3. Group award:
    Two teams can form a group and choose a group name. The team times are added and those who achieve the fastest overall time will secure the sought-after challenge cup for a year.
  4. King of the Hill:
    You can become the King of the Hill f you have participated in both the Bike-Challenge and “Glockner – The Race”. The total time from both competitions is assessed – the lowest wins and crowns the King of the Hill!
