Nature conservation & preservation of biodiversity
Every year, at the end of August, enthusiastic athletes set out to hike or run through the unique Karwendel nature reserve. Running between lush alpine meadows, wet moorland and impressive forests, the participants of the legendary Karwendelmarsch tackle a distance of 35 or 52 kilometres. As well as leaving their footprints on the trails, they also make a positive impact on the environment. Three euros per participant goes to „Spuren der Artenvielfalt“, a project of the Nature Park Karwendel to preserve biodiversity in the region.
Considering nature conservation and pasture management, wetlands and moors are fenced off and fertiliser is not used in sensitive areas, for example. As a result, the focus on sustainability increases, allowing runners to enjoy their achievement while making a valuable contribution to nature conservation and ensuring that the breathtaking Karwendel landscape is preserved for future generations.
