"On the Goasn, get set, go!"

The ultimate experience for all endurance and health athletes in a dreamlike natural landscape with the best view of the MozartCity and the surrounding region. #SALEWA kickstart challenge

Are you ready for your adventure on Salzburg's local mountain?

This trekking tour takes us out of the city into nature and it leads us to ourselves. Step by step we find a new rhythm in which our endurance and the natural environment set the tone. Neither the distance covered nor the speed count, but the conscious experience of the present.

The Summit Meeting is the exciting, eventful and varied prelude to the long weekend of the running festival in the MozartCity

Enjoy and respect the nature reserve of the Gaisberg!

The Gaisberg is a beautiful natural area in the city of Salzburg. Run and hike through the woods and across the meadows with your eyes wide open and enjoy the atmosphere. Please keep the area clean and do not leave any rubbish behind - out of respect for nature and everyone else who wants to enjoy the Gaisberg nature experience.

Enjoy a great get-together after the sporting experience!

The "Goasn Alm" team awaits you right next to the finish line with convivial music, tasty alpine dishes and a cool beer.
