World Mountain and Trail Running Championships 2023

A celebration of sports and an exhibition of Tyrolean assets

INNSBRUCK-STUBAI, April 26, 2023 – It’s less than 40 days to go until Austria’s largest summer sports event, the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships 2023 (WMTRC 2023) are kicking off in Innsbruck and Stubai. At a press conference held at the Hoadl-Haus – in close proximity to the WMTRC routes – GM Alexander Pittl and the organizing committee, together with political representatives and important stakeholders, were able to draw up a positive interim balance for the approximately 75 Austrian and international sports journalists in attendance at the annual “Sports Media Austria Tagung”. 

According to Georg Dornauer, first deputy governor and territorial council in charge of sports-related topics in Tyrol, the WMTRC are of real significance, not only for Tyrol but also in terms of the tradition of World Championships held in the region. As he pointed out during the press conference: “Tyrol has already presented itself as an excellent host for major sporting events in the past. We do not need to look back that far. Examples such as the 2018 UCI Road World Championships put Tyrol center-stage, and the same is going to happen again this summer. As the only world championship to be held in Austria this year, the “World Mountain and Trail Running Championships 2023” are another highlight in the sports calendar, which will once again enthrall numerous spectators with excitement and emotion. The event is of real importance for the country, but also for the tourism industry and our economy in general. 66 nations, some of them with major delegations, will visit the Alps come June. We are proud of this!”
