Marathon route 2021

Tough, tougher, Ötztaler!

Due to a rockfall between Oetzerau and Ochsengarten, this year's route goes via Haiminger Sattele up to Kühtai. The 40th edition of the Ötztal Cycle Marathon is therefore ten kilometres longer and has about 250 altitude metres more. The anniversary edition will finally proof the legendary 238 kilometers and 5500 altitude meters.

Please note: Due to the change in route, the start will already take place at 06.30 am.

Safety Information

PLEASE NOTE: The roads along the marathon track are not entirely closed to public traffic for the duration of the cycling event. Applicable traffic regulations apply here! At any time you must watch out for overtaking vehicles, crossing cars or pedestrians, oncoming traffic and emergency or rescue vehicles (especially on the downhill section from Timmelsjoch Pass).

The participants themselves must stay informed about important race details in their own responsibility and in good time by visiting the official website and by taking part in the mandatory cyclists meeting that focuses on marathon course details, elevation profiles and, in particular, danger spots.
