Gastein Classics the name for a classic cross-country race weekend at the beginning of December in Sportgastein. The Gastein Classics are the kick-off for the Ski Classics competition series, which has been in existence since 2011. This puts Sportgastein on a par with well-known popular cross-country races such as the Wasalauf or the Itanlian Marcialonga in classic technique for professionals and amateurs. Big names such as Therese Johaug or Dario Cologna can also be found in the winners' lists of these classic races. In Gastein, relatively short distances(15/35 kilometers) are run because it is the prologue.
Both professional athletes and amateurs may participate in the race. Saturday and Sunday morning there are two competitions exclusively for Gastein Classics Pro Team athletes. Saturday afternoon there will be competitions for amateur athletes.
