There are moments in life you will never forget: 21 years Lutz knocked on my door, "The Alpirod is canceled - should we organize a follow-up?". We both had no idea that this was the birth of
Alpen-Trail,a very special race that has changed the central-european
Alpentrail and the name Lutz Binzer are very close linked.He put his stamp on this race like no one else and made it one of the safest high alpine
races.You everytime could rely on, when he gave his "ok" for a
Trail, which were rarely easy, but always safely passable.
many of us it was simply "the race".It was nearly perfect:
a super Staff-crew, nice Mushers (many of them have become our friends) and great scenery with challenging Trails. A dream
After 20 years of Alpentrail now the era Lutz comes to an end and we are confronted with the same question "should we organize a new middle distance race?" And the answer is the same, never let
die such a great race.
Long live the Alpentrail!
Lutz- I would like to say thank youfrommy heart.
Without youthis race would not existandwe would have misseda lot of awful times.
