Section 2 – The slope
In Flading, at km 5, we leave the bottom of the valley behind us and on the second section of the route we have to overcome the altitude differential to Malga Klammalm. At the beginning the route follows an old access road, then it continues on more alpine terrain, quickly gaining altitude.
Above the tree line, a special highlight of the race awaits the participants, as the route runs over an almost 2000 m high mountain peak with wonderful panoramic views.
It is now not far to the lower lying Malga Klammalm. This is where the handover zone for the relay runners is located, as well as the spacious second refreshment stop.
