Let’s go vertical in Saalbach!
On top of the mountains … you know these extraordinary feelings.
Always, again and again.
Saalbach and the mountains are a dyad as ever, set in stone like a marriage, with tradition and a drive for modernity. The alpine summits are the playground for active mountain air-addicts. Whether you choose long hikes , comfy walks high above the ground or sporty trail running sessions. In quest of the special moment, the unique, is the reason for our alpine love.
Of course we take our sport- & vital coach Gunter to the mountains. Driven by the joy of motion and discovery – and the relaxation afterwards.
Gunter is the mentor of the local trail running scene. In the winter times he climbs the mountain per skis and in Summer he choose running shoes for his adventures uphill. At the top of the mountains is his goal – only at the top!
Gunter organizes and is responsible for the 2. Saalbacher Berg & Trailruns, an Event with 3 different distances. The Schattberg King & Queen is listed as a vertical sprint. A short distance race over 6 km pure uphill running and finish line on 2.000 m above sea-level. There is the appropriate surrounding for the coronation of the queen & king – a majestic moment - for sure.
You like endurance competitions, aren’t averse to doing “ultras”? We have the ideal event for you: the “Endurance Trail”. 85 km of alpine trail running in a beautiful scenery spiced with 6.000 meters in altitude. It sounds crazy – it is crazy! This race is also the official Austrian championship of the Ultra-Trail Runner.
The Trailmaster – the third variation – is a race over 35 km and the athletes enjoy up- and downhills over 2.800 meters in altitude. That’s also impressive – maybe the more human solution for sportive runners.
