Die Infos für deine Teilnahme

  • Participation requirements
    Minimum age ​Persons aged 16 and over are eligible to participate. Persons under the age of 18 must submit a signed declaration of consent to a legal guardian when picking up their bib number.< /p>
  • Route
    The AT&S Vertical Iron Sprint leads over the steepest and most demanding section of the Erzberg Dirtrun route - up over the famous "water pipe". At the Erzberg Rodeo/Red Bull Hare Scramble, the toughest off-road single race in the world, the "water pipe" mercilessly throws down dozens of professional drivers every year and has always been one of the central "stumbling blocks" in the course of the race. Even at the Erzberg Dirtrun, the water pipe is the decisive sticking point right at the beginning of the route. If you make it, you continue on a breathtaking route with up to 60 additional obstacles. If you don't make it, the fun was short and you can try your luck again next year. Now it's getting tougher than ever: Cover the 180 meter long route over Erzberg scree as quickly as possible and climb 92 meters in altitude with an extreme incline. The steepest part has an incline of 97%, but even on average you have to fight against an incline of over 50%

  • Important information for participants and visitors
    Proper clothing & footwear: You are on the Erzberg in high alpine terrain. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing - it's best to wear an onion look, as the temperatures can vary greatly between the valley and the summit. Also: the mountain is full of surprises! We know from the past few years that the Erzberg likes to show itself from different angles. From 30 degrees and sweltering heat to the wintry snow-covered summit landscape, everything was there in summer too. So be prepared for all weather conditions.

    AT&S Vertical Iron Sprint for just €19 Participants who register for the Erzberg Dirtrun will receive the ticket for the AT&S Vertical Iron Sprint for only €19 instead of the regular €29. This discount is automatically taken into account when registering online.
