Yes, the Glocknerkönig takes place in all kinds of weather - even when snow falls on the mountain. Exception: The road must be closed by the operator for safety reasons.
Corresponding weather information is available in the starting area via the loudspeaker system. Everyone can then decide for themselves whether they want to take part. A refund of the participation fee is not possible.
Weather forecasts are provided by online weather services days in advance. In the last years it turned out several times that such general weather services mostly informed superficially or even wrongly. Please inform yourself about the weather exclusively via this website. The forecast is made by local weather services as well as by mountain-experienced locals. A serious forecast for the high mountains is possible at the earliest on Saturday before the race.
Entitlement for the 1st starting block is given without exception to participants who completed the Glocknerkönig CLASSIC 2023 or 2022 under 1:45:00 or the Glocknerkönig ULTRA 2023 or 2022 under 1:50:00 or who have a race license valid on the race date. We ask you to send this in advance by mail.

The route of the Glocknerkönig runs right through the Hohe Tauern National Park.
At the latest, the breathtaking view during the ascent of the Großglockner should be clear to everyone:
The environment must be protected in order to continue enjoying its beauty.
Environmental protection is very important to us, therefore we have set the following actions:
It is best to pack a dry and warm change of clothes and a backpack (to carry your race clothes down to the valley) in your garment bag.
Remember to bring windbreakers, hats and gloves even if the weather is fine, as cold temperatures are to be expected in the high mountains (especially on the descent).
Please do not put any valuables in the garment bags. The organizer assumes no liability for the contents.
There are several sports and bike stores in the area:
Directly in the center of Bruck is the Mobile Bicycle Workshop Radschlag and will gladly help you with small repairs. (Glocknerstraße 24, 5671 Bruck an der Großglocknerstraße)
Smaller repairs gladly done Hervis Bruck an der Glocknerstraße (Waagstraße 2, 5671 Bruck an der Glocknerstraße).
The following bike service places are located in the vicinity:
This year we are using a disposable transponder for timekeeping for the first time. This is integrated into a seat post start number. The disposable chip has many advantages for the starter:
When it comes to environmental protection, we have taken an important step with the new disposable transponders:
Tickets for the visitor bus will be available on Saturday during race office hours (10:00 to 20:00) in the merchandise tent.

You are welcome to drive your private car to the finish area before the roadblock to give the motivated athletes a proper welcome.
The road is closed from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. from the checkout point Ferleiten to the Edelweißspitze.
That means you have to pass the ticket office BEFORE 7:00 am. A car ticket costs 40 EUR.
For safety reasons it is not allowed to stop your car on the track. A passage to the Fuscher Törl must be guaranteed.
Attention: Departure is only possible after the roadblock has been lifted.
Classic and Ultra:
The further forward you want to be in the starting block, the earlier you have to come. From 6:20 / 6:30 a.m. the starting blocks already start to fill up.
The starting signal is given at 07:00 a.m., at this time you should already be in the starting block.
If you arrive by car, you have to leave Bruck at 06:40 a.m. at the latest, because after that you will not be able to get to Ferleiten due to the stops along the Glocknerstraße.
For your safety, the Red Cross will be on duty with four ambulances and two motorcycles.
In addition, there are motorcycles that will act as marshals to help you quickly in case of emergency.
If you are not injured but still can't/won't continue, you will have to wait for the roadblock to be lifted at 10:30 a.m. before heading down into the valley.
Already before the crossing to the Edelweißspitze both goals are well marked. Go straight to the Fuscher Törl, turn left for the Edelweißspitze.
Directly at the crossroads there are additional marshals who will send you to the right destination based on your start number.
Should it happen that you finish in the wrong place, your time will not be counted.
Exception: As a starter of the Ultra route you have to finish after 10:15 a.m. (grace period) at the Classic finish (Fuscher Törl) and will be rated as a Classic starter.
Classic and Light starters can finish until 11:30 a.m. to be included in the classification.
Ultra starters: Around 300m before the Classic finish, the courses divide.
At this split point, the cut-off time for ultrarunners is 10:15am.
After 10:15 a.m., all ultrarunners must finish at the Classic finish and will be included in the Classic classification.
We kindly request you NOT to throw your trash (gel, power bar wrappers and banana peels) carelessly on the ground during the ride up.
The Glocknerkönig leads through the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
There are trash receptacles in the finish area that allow for trash separation.
Thank you for your help to protect the environment.
For safety reasons, only registered participants can drive the [applied for with the authorities (district administration) or the road owner (Großglockner Hochalpenstraße AG)]. route = village square Bruck to Fuschertörl/Edelweißspitze. Cyclists without a start number are not allowed during the event.
We appeal here to your understanding and fairness.
