The Kaiser Maximilian Lauf cross-country ski race is scheduled for the second weekend in January in Leutasch and Seefeld.
This top-level VISMA Ski Classics race is part of the Endurance Ski Championships and can boast a course with plenty of variety and breathtaking natural scenery.
No other cross-country skiing race offers such an impressive opportunity for hobby skiers to compete alongside elite cross-country skiers. Well-known World Cup athletes such as Tord Asle Gjerdalen and Britta Johansson Norgren will once again be part of the elite competition.
The Kaiser Maximilian Lauf offers the original 60 km distance and the shorter distance of 30 km in classic cross-country skiing technique. The start of the 60 km distance will be in the WM Arena Seefeld, whereas the participants in the 30 km distance will start in Leutasch.
Part of the route runs along trails used in the World Championships from Seefeld via Mösern, Wildmoos and Leutasch and then back to the World Cup Arena. The course offers everything that makes a cross-country skier’s pulse beat faster: challenging climbs, easy flat sections and exciting downhill runs with a total altitude difference of 835 metres!
