Running across country on the Hochkönig
Trail running in the gorgeous mountain scenery of Salzburg
With trail running, you run on gravel, through forests, and across fields in open terrain. With a variety of routes and an extraordinary alpine panorama, the Hochkönig region is made just for this. Three important trail running events take place each year on the Hochkönig. The Hochkönigman is impressive with its length of 198 km and 12.639 vertical meters. The greatest challenge is presented by the Salomon 4 Trails – this consists of 4 days with 160 km and 10,000 vertical meters leading from Germany to Austria.

The traditional Kumpellauf has always led the miners along the Hochkönig and the Schneeberg and still attracts top athletes from near and far. In 2005, the spectacular and unique mountain run was reactivated and demands everything from the participants. The route along the mountain huts and lodges and the acclaimed finish line make the Kumpellauf an unforgettable experience.
