Held every year since 1989 in the Stubaital (Stubai Valley), which is near the city of Innsbruck in Austria's state of Tirol (Tyrol), the Schlickeralmlauf is a prestigious mountain running event that has attracted professional athletes and ambitious amateurs from all over the globe.

The race is a very scenic 11.5-kilometre run through forests and pastures and through the Schlick 2000 ski area, starting at an elevation of 987 metres in the village of Telfes im Stubai and finishing at 2,136 metres on the Kreuzjoch.

If this sounds too strenuous, you may prefer to register for the 7.5-kilometre race which starts a bit higher up the mountain. The route begins at 1,350 metres above sea level at the Mittelstation (middle station) of the Kreuzjochbahn, a gondola lift that runs between the valley and the Kreuzjoch ridge.

Both routes, the kurze Strecke (short course) and the lange Strecke (long course), pass the Schlickeralm mountain restaurant and end on the Kreuzjoch.
