Pure running is no longer, because trail running in Gastein is the thing of the hour! Although to dismiss this running sport as a fad would not do justice to the happening. When trail running in Bad Gastein, Dorfgastein and other parts of the Gastein Valley, there are slightly different challenges on the program. Flat or even paved paths are the exception.
Exciting trail running in autumn
The diverse nature of the Gastein Valley is of course ideal for unlimited fun, and the golden autumn tops the spectacle once more. The trails – part of a network of 600 km of marked paths – think very little of comfort. Trail runners prefer off the beaten track. Stick and stone, gravel paths, meadows and forests are an absolute must, as is the mountain run. And which region would be better suited for this than the undulating, sometimes quite alpine Gastein Valley? The exciting play of colors in autumn, accompanied by historical squares, powerful waterfalls and mysterious mountain lakes, is a special bonus.
A world championship place
Beginners appreciate the diverse range of trails that introduce them step by step to this fascinating sport. But it’s not just beginners who run over mountains and valleys for a long time. The world champions of this discipline are crowned at the early summer adidas INFINITE TRAILS Gastein. Sweaty competitions of up to 60 km lead over the Gastein Trail and other fascinating routes. The wheat is separated from the chaff quickly.
Whether pleasure runner or top athlete – all those who enjoy running will get their money’s worth with trail running in Gastein. Make the Steindlwirt your trail base camp and discover many other activities, accompanied by a wonderful indulgence and pampering program in the hotel. We look forward to your Vacation request !
