Health check

Are you fit enough for the Salzburg Marathon?

The marathon or first half marathon is a delightful challenge, but the strain shouldn't be underestimated. In addition to your realistic self-assessment and your motivating thoughts, a fitness check with your trusted sports doctor provides important clues for sensible preparation.

Your health is paramount: No matter what distance you aim for, only start if you are healthy and your body can take stress. Then your running adventure will definitely be a pleasure.

Qualified sports physicians check your fitness for sports and support you in achieving your sporting and health goals. We recommend that you consult our Salzburg Marathon doctor, Dr. Holger Foster.

PS: As the organizer of the marathon, we recommend a preparation period of at least one and a half to two years, for example for newcomers to the marathon distance.

GRR questionnaire

Your health is very important to us!

The German Road Races eV association wants to actively support you in your sporting activities, so that you can do sport independently and in a health-conscious manner and prevent possible health hazards. In cooperation with the German Sports University in Cologne, the German Society for Sports Medicine and Prevention and German Road Races, a scientifically sound test instrument has been created, which we would like to advise you to take part in. We therefore ask you to fill out the short GRR questionnaire on health conscientiously. You will receive an evaluation of your information at the end of the questionnaire. Please take a few minutes for your health!

Here is the questionnaire
