Kaiser Maximilian Lauf started in 2016 and the event has become a celebrated sports event in Central-Europe. It has also been a member of the Visma Ski Classics pro tour every year since its inception.
The Olympic region Seefeld in Austria hosted the World Championships in Nordic skiing in 2019, and the 60 km course of the Kaiser Maximilian Lauf partially follows the Championships tracks offering a unique experience in the heart of the Alps.
Seefeld is located on a plateau at an altitude of 1200 meters, embedded in a breathtaking and majestic mountain atmosphere. The idyllic town is less than 40 km away from Innsbruck and Garmisch-Partenkirchen and about a two-hour drive from the Munich airport.
The course is quite challenging with long and demanding climbs. The most demanding section is the climb up to Wildmoos and the subsequent descent. Participants will also ski partly on the historic 1976 Olympic trails and enjoy the picturesque landscapes around them.
Registration for Kaiser Maximilian Lauf opens today, Saturday 18thof May at CET 10:00.
