The Emberger Alm Berglauf (‘Emberg Pasture Mountain Run’) is a mountain running event in the state of Kärnten (Carinthia) in Austria.
It offers two highly-challenging uphill races:
- Emberger Alm Lauf (6.1km with 1,050m of ascent)
- Naßfeldriegellauf (8km with 1,545m of ascent)
Starting at an elevation of 690 metres in Berg im Drautal, a very neat and pretty village in the Drava valley, both routes run on roads (40 percent) and steep trails (60 percent) through dense forests to the Emberger Alm mountain pasture (1,740m; pictured above), a favourite destination for paragliding and hang gliding pilots and for amateur astronomers.
Participants in the Naßfeldriegellauf pass the finish area on the Emberger Alm and run another gruelling 1,900 metres to finish their race on the summit of Naßfeldriegel (2,235m) in a stunning high-alpine environment:
