Race Description

Dear Runner!
We invite you to Austria’s greatest scenic race experience to be held on the third weekend in October, 2014, and with 3,590 entries, 3,133 starters and 3,113 finishers, October 2013 saw a new participant record! Stunning scenic sections on delightful paths along the shoreline – between water and rock faces – offer everything the runner’s heart desires, and with the four main competitions, the Salzkammergut Marathon (42.195km), the 27km Classic, the 10km Shoreline Race and the 5.2km Panorama Race – there is an appropriate distance for everyone.

The Ultimate Running Experience
After its successful debut in 2011, the special challenge of the Salzkammergut Marathon is in the programme again. After starting in the Imperial town of Bad Ischl and following a 15km lead in, it follows the original circular course of the 27km Classic around Lake Wolfgangsee – with the “invigorating” Falkenstein (220m difference in altitude). The participants were unanimous – “A cracking, first class marathon”.

The Classic is the 27km Race of course, which took place for the first time 42 years ago (on the 26th October, 1972). With up to 2,000 entrants, it is the competition with the greatest number of participants, but the 10km Shoreline Race and the 5.2km Panorama Race are getting more and more popular – not forgetting the junior competitions, that take place on Saturday (18th October, 2014) on the picturesque lake promenade in Strobl, of course!

A Medal for Everyone that Finishes
The finishing line of all four Sunday competitions is situated in the heart of St. Wolfgang – about 100m away from the “Weißen Rössl” (the White Horse Inn). All those who finish, over whatever distance, receive an artistically designed medal. The Lake Wolfgangsee circuit is among the most beautiful running challenges on the European running scene. Why don’t you simply enter and enjoy…
