Innsbruck and the surrounding area offer the perfect infrastructure for trail running – over 110 kilometres very close to the city, but also high alpine. Autumn is dominated by the internationally popular Trail Run Festival.In Innsbruck there are 70 kilometres of designated trail-running routes.
Kühtai not only inspires with perfect trail running routes, but with its high alpine topography and existing infrastructure, it also offers ideal conditions for extensive altitude training. The Kühtai saddle, on which the trails begin, is already at 2,020 metres above sea level and forms the starting point for high alpine running tours through impressive nature, past peaks and mountain lakes. Another special feature in Kühtai is the high altitude performance centre, which is regularly used by top athletes for intensive training sessions. This has a tartan track for controlled running training and now offers additional options for training and enjoyment thanks to the natural trails.

In the implementation of the approximately 45 kilometre long trails and running routes of varying degrees of difficulty in Kühtai, special emphasis was placed on harmony with the surrounding nature: Thus the trails were not built, but existing paths were designed as trail running routes. The new trails and running routes start from the Kühtai Tourist Information at 2,020 metres and lead in all directions: The Schwarzmoosrunde leads over 9.5 kilometres and 459 metres in altitude to the Kaiserbahn mountain station at 2,443 metres. The turning point also offers a unique view over the Schwarzmoos lakes and the Sellraintal valley.
