Here’s how the Winter Triathlon in Gastein works
This multi-sport race is designed as a relay for everyone. It begins at the valley station of the Goldbergbahn with an initial leg for skiing mountaineers. After that, the downhiller in each team takes over and tackles a freeride run back to the valley. At the bottom, the “baton” is handed to the team’s cross-country specialist who, powered by that unmistakable “Nordic Spirit”, will complete the final 5 km along an alpine cross-country trail. A great atmosphere as well as a first-rate side program including music, food & drink add the perfect finishing touches to this highlight event in Sportgastein. The entry fee per team (3 people) is € 135, of which € 20 is donated to "Wings for Life".
