From the start in Alpendorf, the tarmac road leads upwards at an incline of around 10-12 % past the hotels in Alpendorf, via the Sternhof. Then the terrain changes to gravel track. The ascent from there starts off quite gently, so you can (if you need to) recover from the initial 3 km. Up to the next station the Kreistenalm, (there you’ll find a freshment stop with drinks) it’s just a further 1.5 km along the hiking trail. Having finally reached Kreistenalm, the most demanding part of route (aptly named “knee biter”) up to the mid-station at the Obergassalm begins. This route section surely takes its toll on even the best runners and running is well and truly over.
Tipps & Info: Are you a keen runner too? Maybe we’ll meet next year at the Gernkogel Mountain Run.
