Conquest of the Mountains: Tyrolean Throwdown

The highest Throwdown in Europe, 1905 meters above the sea, in the heart of the Alps.

Welcome to the Tyrolean Mountain Throwdown, the ultimate outdoor competition. The Seegrube in Innsbruck sits right in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps at 1905 meters above sea level and provides the perfect backdrop for a breathtaking competition.

In no other place in the world is the dividing line between an urban area and rugged mountain terrain so thin.

The Hill Run

You did not manage to qualify? Don’t worry. You still get your chance to compete. On Friday, 12th June, you and your family and friends have the opportunity to take part in the first heat of the Tyrolean Mountain Throwdown: the Hill Run. Bring your family and friends along and tackle the challenging track while surrounded by the breathtaking panorama of the Nordkette mountain chain. Start of the hill run is Friday at 17:00 (5 pm). The fastest man and woman can each expect an exciting prize.

There is no bad weather there are just bad clothes.

The athletes who qualified will also kick off the event with a hill run up to the Seegrube. The forest road is 1500 metres long and covers an altitude difference of 245 metres. To make things even tougher, athletes will be given additional weight to carry along the race course. The weights can either be bumpers, canisters or sand bags. Athletes have to carry the weights all the way and are neither allowed to pull or push the weight.

The City

If you visit Austria for this great event you should take time and stay some more days in the historic city of Innsbruck. Think imperial monuments and contemporary urban design. Olympic records and opulent past splendour. Open to the world and rich in traditions, the Tyrolean capital has always been a city of many faces.  Innsbruck also plays a significant role as a major international sports hub located in the heart of the Alps. Having played host to Olympic Winter Games on two occasions already (1964 and 1976), Innsbruck was also the venue for the inaugural 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games. Keeping its finger on the pulse of the times, Innsbruck offers a vibrant blend of cultural treasures and lofty heights, high heels and hiking boots, Baroque opera and jaunty marching bands.
