GAP PUB RUN – Ski Touring and Cross Country Edition

The GAP Pub Run Winter Edition is a weekly ski night, which is built on the popular community run in Garmisch-Partenkirchen which is held in summer. Every Wednesday up to 30 runners met for an easy and fun run through town, mostly averaging around 45-60 minutes. The trails varied every single time … while the fun we had together and the beer in The Irish was a consistent part of the Pub Run.





At the Winter Edition we always start skiing at 7pm on Wednesdays and we will have a ski touring or a nordic night alternating every week. In contrast to the summer GAP Pub Run, there is no fix starting point. We will try to explore a new ski touring destination or cross-country trail every single week – always depending on snow conditions. After each session, we will hit the closest pub or hut on the way back. As the destinations change and also snow conditions do, we invite you to join our GAP Pub Run Facebook group or visit the Sport Conrad Blog from time to time.

Free and high-quality test equipment

At the Winter Edition every type of skier should feel welcomed and therefore we also want to offer free test equipment to skiers, who want to get into ski touring and cross-country skiing. Even experienced skiers will have the chance to test the latest material on the market. Our partners from the ski industry will be on spot with tasty fresh equipment. You can find more information about the free-rentals and when there is a ski brand attending through the GAP Pub Run Facebook group, where there will be a weekly update and early sign-up for free equipment tests.




The ski tours will be averaging 45 to 60 minutes, while the cross country sessions will be around 45 to 60 minutes long. We will either use the light of our head lamps or go cross country skiing on one of the lighted loops around town. Here you can find the planned ski & after-ski destinations (subject to changes in case of weak snow conditions):
