The closing competition of the Arlberg Adler (Arlberg Eagle). A difficult strength-sapping race awaits the participants.
Starting from the pedestrian precint the athletes move towards St. Jakob on the main road to Hotel Tirolerhof. After a short climb and a descent to Untergand the 1st ascent goes along the Putzenweg towards Putzenalpe. From the Alp, situated at 1726 m above sea level, the route leads westwards towards the beautiful Schöngraben. From Schöngraben the route now descends towards Nasserein and for the first time on the village Dorfstraße through the Zielbogen and further to Lottpark and towards the old Rendlbahn. From there it continues into Moostal and to the junction of the passageway towards Alpe Rendl. To continue, you'll run back towards Talboden, and then to St. Jakob, and a second steep climb towards Putzenalpe. After having passed the second time through Nasserein the last descent now runs towards the finishing line in the pedestrian precinct. 38 km long, 1622 m difference in altitude.
