KRM Klassik or KRM Kitz

There are two routes. The main difference is the finish location:

  • KRM Klassik, 216 km/4600m+, finish on the Kitzbüheler Horn.
  • KRM Kitz, 209 km/3400m+, finish in the centre of Kitzbühel.

Epic route, hard climbs

You can choose between the KRM Klassik (216 km/4600m+) with finish on the Kitzbüheler Horn and the KRM Kitz (209 km/3400m+) with finish in Kitzbühel.

Both routes contain challenging climbs:

KRM Klassik

Kitzbüheler Horn, grand final

The KRM Klassik race spans 216 kilometers, culminating in the grueling Kitzbüheler Horn climb, known as one of the toughest one-day gran fondo challenges. Over just 7.5 kilometers, you'll ascend 924 meters, facing an average gradient of 12.3% and a maximum of 23%. This climb is a supreme test for gran fondo enthusiasts, requiring the use of the easiest gear, as even that can be a formidable challenge. Reaching the summit is a heroic achievement.

KRM Kitz

The perfect escape

The course mirrors the KRM Klassik route, with the distinction of concluding in Kitzbühel. You can pre-register for this distance or opt for the KRM Kitz route on the day itself.

This option is perfect for those running on empty, facing setbacks, or simply looking for a change of pace. It's also an excellent choice for groups, allowing participants to ride at their own comfort level.

And no mistake: KRM Kitz is still a challenging ride.
