On July 10, 2022, the second edition of the Kitzbüheler Radmarathon will take place. After a successful premiere, next summer it will again be over 216 kilometers and 4,600 meters of altitude around Kitzbühel with the spectacular mountain finale at the Kitzbüheler Horn. From November 1, 2021 athletes have the opportunity to register for the race. For the first two months until the end of the year, the Early Bird mode and reduced entry fees for the individual as well as the relay competition will apply. For the first time, the race weekend will be a three-day event with registration and race number distribution from Friday to Saturday and the marathon on Sunday, when the race starts again at 6:00 am. The route for the 2022 edition has been adapted only slightly. From the start in the Kitzbühel Vorder Stadt it goes again over the Paß Thurn to Mittersill. Through the Pinzgau region, the second climb of the route follows with the Gerlos Pass. In the Zillertal, the expressway is now bypassed, but the total kilometers as well as the total altitude meters do not change. With the Kerschbaumer Sattel, the third climb of the day awaits and this leads the field of participants into the Alpbachtal. Once there, the route continues via Brixlegg, Kramsach, Brandenberg and Angerberg back into the Brixen Valley to Kitzbühel, where the final difficulty of a long day awaits with the ascent to an altitude of 1,760 meters. The final climb to the Kitzbüheler Horn is 8 kilometers long and has an average gradient of 12.3 percent. The real highlight are the ramps of up to 23 percent that have to be conquered in between.
Better together – The KRM as a relay experience If you want to divide the 216 kilometers and 4,600 meters of altitude on July 10, 2022 on several shoulders and tackle the adventure Kitzbüheler Radmarathon as a team experience, the relay is perfect. Three athletes can experience the spectacular race in the categories women, men and mixed. They divide the total length into three changes and so sections of 50, 70 and 90 kilometers await the individual teams. This means that even newcomers can get a taste of the marathon scene and complete the challenging course around the Gamsstadt together with friends. The first section leads from Kitzbühel to Wald im Pinzgau. The second changeover then takes place in Brixlegg, where the last participant then completes the final stretch to the finish line.
