Trail running is becoming more and more popular. At the adidas INFINITE TRAILS World Championships on Saturday, 27 June, three-person trail-running teams will compete in a relay competition in three different divisions (women's, men's, mixed). In an absolutely breathtaking natural setting, each runner must complete one of the three courses, each of which varies in terms of distance as well as elevation profile. The selection includes: 25 km/1900 vm – 60 km/3800 vm – 40 km/2100 vm. The last few kilometers will be run by all relay runners together, so that they can cross the finish line as a team.
Gastein invites travel companions and hotel guests to visit various hotspots at huts along the courses, including those on the Graukogel and the Stubnerkogel. Thanks to discounted tickets for the buses and lifts, it couldn't be easier to stay one step ahead of the runners and cheer them on as they pass. In addition, DJs and sports announcers will do their part to fire up spectators as well.
Diverse side events, such as yoga sessions and Friday's Market Run, invite everyone to get involved. There's no shortage of food and drink during the events either, thanks to regional farmers and their homemade products in Bad Hofgastein and the bein.hoat Weisswurst Party in Dorfgastein.
