WMTRC INNSBRUCK-STUBAI 2023:
ALREADY 58 COUNTRIES CONFIRMED
The Innsbruck-Stubai community will bring the WMTRC to Tyrol in June 2023, after a very competitive bidding process overseen by the event’s partners, the International Association of Ultrarunners, the International Trail Running Association and the World Mountain Running Association (WMRA), along with World Athletics.
So far, the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships (WMTRC), which are set to take place in Innsbruck and Stubai from June 6 to 10, are causing a global stir. Four months prior to the title races, 58 national associations have already signed up, equalling more than 1,200 athletes and an additional 200 coaching staff to be expected in Tyrol.
According to the organization, more than 60 nations are expected to compete in the heart of the Alps, for four days. Male and female athletes will compete in four different events: WMRA uphill mountain races; classic WMRA mountain races, plus the short trail (42k) and long trail (80k) regulated by IAU.
In addition, there will be a youth world cup for male and female athletes who will compete in a single event: WMRA’s Classic mountain race.

Alexander Pittl, head of the organizational committee adds: “We based our plans and strategy on the expectation of welcoming around 60 nations, and we will likely reach and surpassed this number. I am even more delighted about the fact that we will indeed be welcoming the entire world – we are expecting teams from New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong as well as from South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Argentina, Chile and Mexico – let alone the European nations, where almost every country from Iceland to the Ukraine to Malta is represented.”
