Dimitris Theodorakakos and Nuria Picas are the overall winners of the Salomon 4 Trails 2014

The 4th edition of the SALOMON 4 TRAILS ended on Saturday with a spectacular stage from Landeck to Samnaun.

Dimitris Theodorakakos(GRE) claimed the overall victory after four stages with a total of 152.1 kilometers and a total vertical gain of 9376 meters. Second in the Men's overall ranking was Iker Karrera (SPA), followed by Mirco Berner (GER) in third place.

Nuria Picas (SPA) was the Women's overall winer followed by Tina Fischl (GER) and Zhanna Vokueva (RUS).

The route: 5 places - 4 stages – 3 countries

Participants enjoyed four unforgettable days (July 9th -12th) in breathtaking settings in the SALOMON 4 TRAILS. The route took them from Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GER) over Ehrwald (AUT), Imst (AUT) and Landeck (AUT) to Samnaun (CH). Every day about thirty to forty kilometers and over 2000 altitude difference was covered.

Partenkirchen via Ehrwald, Imst and Landeck to Samnaun, the challenge is to overcome a total of 152.1 km of distance and about 9376 meters of elevation - a challenging undertaking, because even the shortest stage from Imst to Landeck features a distance of more than 31 km and 1,800 meters of difference in elevation. At that point participants will already have the starting stage from Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Ehrwald in their legs and also the high-alpine stage 2 featuring Grünsteinscharte and Tschirgant. The king's stage follows on the last day of the event: More than 44 km and close to 2,900 meters of elevation gain will then take the trail runners to an unforgettable finisher in Samnaun.
