16th Schafberg Run


The race against the Schafberg cog wheel railway continues on May 17, 2015. The run to the top of the Schafberg Mountain. Only real sportsmen will run up to the mountain peaks of the Schafberg.


Date: 26.05.2013, 09:30 - 15:00 (Further dates)

The challenges are extraordinary in any case: with gradients up to 26% and 1240 m height difference it is one of the toughest mountain races in Austria.

Cog wheel railway vs. Runners

2007 Helmut Schmuck succeeded in getting the course record from 1986 to improve to one seconds. The best brand is now at 43:03 minutes, and clearly under the cog railway ride of 45 minutes.

Endorphin distribution guaranteed

Not only the view of the magnificent alpine panorama and of five Lakes in the Salzkammergut spur on the best extreme sports-athletes. Already more than 20 years ago the run was one of the absolute adventure race among races. Also this year he will again demand runners. Only real "Wade grosbeak" can do it with the target of the Schafberg and the new course record.

The route

By starting at the bottom station of the Schafbergbahn at 9.30 a.m. (540 m) the time is running. Along the railway tracks the runner pass the Dorner and Schafbergalpe, always aimed at the peak of the Schafberg (1,730 m) forward. The track has a lot to offer, from lush green pastures on screes with numerous switchbacks and steep paths to vertical sloping rocks. Not the distance of 5.8 kilometers ensures tension, but the approximately 1,240 meters in altitude, some with gradients up to 26% to overcome. The athletes have to devide their forces. Whether this year the record could be broken again, the award ceremony at the Hotel Schafberg will show.
