MOZART 100 BY UTMB: 9 RACES
The trails of mozart 100 by UTMB® lead the participants through the diversity and beauty of the Salzburger Land and guarantee a unique and unforgettable trail running experience. With nine different competitions, mozart 100 by UTMB® offers the right distance for every level of experience.
MOZART 100 | 105KM | +/- 5,000 METERS |
mozart 100: the pinnacle event of mozart 100 by UTMB® and with over 800 registered runners, the competition with the highest number of participants. mozart 100 starts in the heart of Salzburg’s old town on Kapitelplatz at the foot of Hohensalzburg Fortress. The profiled route leads the participants via Hinterwinkel to the Zwölferhorn, at 1,500m the highest elevation of the competition.
The magnificent all-round view of Lake Wolfgang and the Salzburger Land rewards the effort of the ascent. Via St. Gilgen and along the shore of Lake Wolfgang, the runners can expect the second big climb up the Schafberg to the Schafbergalm after about 55km, before heading back towards Fuschl and along the north shore of Lake Fuschl. After 95km it’s time to mobilize your reserves again, because the second last climb up to the Nockstein up to 1,000m follows.
Once at the top, the fantastic view of the city of Salzburg will hopefully give the runners a last boost of motivation to tackle the final 10km over the Kapuzinerberg back to the old town of Salzburg with lots of energy, where they will be rewarded with an unforgettable finish and their hard-earned medal.
The fastest men complete the course in around 10.5 hours, the fastest woman finished after 13:19.21 hours in last year’s edition. A cut-off time of 22 hours is the maximum time available for all participants to complete the 105km.
MOZART ULTRA | 75 KM |+/- 4,000 M
mozart Ultra: the second ultra-distance for experienced trail runners and ultra-novices. The mozart Ultra starts in the center of the village Fuschl am See and leads the runners along the same trails as for mozart 100. The fastest men need 8.5 hours, the fastest women 9.5 hours to complete the course.
MOZART MARATHON | 41KM | + 1,800M/ -1,900M
mozart Marathon: after mozart 100, the mozart Marathon is the competition with the second highest number of participants of around 400 runners. The start is in St. Gilgen, right on the banks of the beautiful. Wolfgangsee, and takes runners to the old town of Salzburg on the same trails as mozart 100 and mozart Ultra.
The perfect introduction to the world of trail running for experienced road runners. Despite the many meters of altitude, the fastest men reach the finish line in about 3.5 hours, the fastest women in about 4.5 hours.
MOZART LIGHT |31KM | + 1,100M/ -1,300M
mozart Light: starting in Fuschl am See – mozart Half Marathon: 21km, + 750m/ -1,000m, starting in Koppl – mozart City Trail: 9km, +/- 300m, starting in the old town of Salzburg, give all runners have the opportunity to get a first impression of the challenges of trail running.
Team competitions: For all fans of team competitions or for all those who would like to get a taste of the world of trail running, there is also the opportunity to complete the two ultra-distances mozart 100 and mozart Ultra in teams and to share the adventure with friends and colleagues. There is also a team ranking on the mozart City Trail, in which teams of three participants complete the 9 km and the total time of the three team members is added up.
