WMTRC 2023 Innsbruck-Stubai: Wide reach and lots of emotion

Last updated on 06.07.2023

One month after the start of the World Mountain and Trail Running Championships 2023 Innsbruck-Stubai – June 6 to 10 – organizer Alexander Pittl is taking stock. In addition, he presents the official World Mountain and Trail Running Championships highlights video, which summarizes the event’s highlights.

“Even a month after the WMTRC 2023 with around 1,300 athletes from 68 countries and more than 50,000 spectators, the beautiful and emotional impressions of the event are lingering in our heads,” says WMTRC organizer Alexander Pittl.

Over four days of racing, the world elite in mountain and trail running competed for the coveted world championship titles on four routes – the Vertical, the Trail Short, the Trail Long and the Mountain Classic. Sports enthusiasts who couldn’t make it to the tracks were able to follow the nail-biting races via live stream. “Due to the international nature of the starting field, the live streams were available in six different languages – German, English, Spanish, Italian, French and Chinese – and reached tens of millions of spectators around the globe, which makes us very proud,” Pittl adds.

Pittl continues: “Over the past few weeks, Roast Media’s video and film experts have sifted several hundred hours of material and filtered out the most delightful, exciting and emotional scenes. These were packed into a video of highlights that represents what the WMTRC 2023 was in the end, an event that entered the stage with a bang.”

“Once again, we would like to thank everyone who made this major sports event possible. Institutional sponsors, the Tirol Tourist Board, Innsbruck Tourism, the Stubai Tirol Tourist Association, sponsors such as Volkswagen R, La Sportiva, Salomon and others have ensured that the WMTRC 2023 will only be remembered in positive terms. The official video aims to pay homage to the sport of running as well as the event itself, and to show how beautiful and uplifting it is to practice sport in nature,” says Pittl.
