"The mountain calls."

Karl Unterkircher


I started running in 2011 as a joke, a bet with a friend had "set me up" to participate in the trail "Le porte di pietra 70 km", from there immediately an absolute 7th place .... and it was only the beginning. From there it was a succession of experiences, and now I find myself participating in cross, vertical, skyrace, trail and ultra trail, almost every weekend, without forgetting 4 participations in the Mezzalama Trophy, and in the classic skialp. In addition to running, I am a free climbing instructor, and I enjoy myself both on the crag and on the great walls in the Dolomites.



1) Which is your favorite place for running?
The paths close to home remain my favorite place, my references.
2) Which is your specialization?
I try to range on every specialty of the race ... probably the races up to 60 km are more competitive for me!
3) Do you have a pre-race routine?
No, I simply try to get to the races relaxed and aware of what I can do.
4) When and why did you start running?
In 2011, a 70 km trail, the first ever race, faced as a simple bet.
5) Which are your La Sportiva favorite shoes?
I love Kaptiva and Helios SR, both light and performing!
6) What's in the air?
I'm preparing a Kima trophy, and a return to the Tor des geants, without forgetting the dream of doing well in the Golden Series.
