Trail Running

23. Aug. 2023

Now new on the Alpe-Adria-Trail, Nockberge-Trail and Krk Island Trail - What has proven itself for long-distance hiking will also work great for trail running.

Since we are not only concerned with the outdoors at work, but also prefer to spend every minute in nature or in the mountains in our free time – be it hiking, cycling, ski touring, mountain biking or climbing – we naturally talk a lot with like-minded people Friends. We were repeatedly asked by enthusiastic trail runners that the service was extremely practical for trail running. A few more conversations, all in the same vein, had actually convinced us that our service with completely individual planning options would bring a whole new quality to the planning of individual multi-day trail runs from one place to the next. What has proven itself for long-distance hiking will also work great for trail running.

So we got together with the magazine “Trailrunning Scene” and the “professional.sportscoach” Werner Sturm and prepared three trails for trail running. You get everything organized that you need for multi-day trail running from place to place: Above all, a luggage service that easily solves the logistical problem of a very light day pack as a prerequisite for trail running. In addition, of course, uncomplicated hotel bookings from place to place, which you have an overview of immediately when booking. The necessary shuttle services are included as well as perfectly prepared trail documents including GPS tracks. If something unforeseen happens, a hotline is available to you 12 hours a day during your trail trip. Of course, you can also book a certified trail running guide as an option. And the good thing is: You can book the trail running offers for just one person and on any date according to your individual needs. No group or appointment compulsion.

So what do the three trails we start with offer?

Trail running on the Alpe-Adria-Trail
– get close to the Großglockner. We have prepared the first four stages of the famous Alpe-Adria-Trail for you as a trail runner. But to make it more exciting in the opposite direction with more ascent and less descent. In terms of landscape, the whole register of the Hohe Tauern is drawn out: idyllic pilgrimage churches, living mountain farming culture with ancient, beautiful hamlets and finally the glacier world of the Großglockner that is getting closer and closer. A typical “cross-trail” with a few asphalt sections interspersed on the second stage – currently the easiest of our three trail running offers.

Trail running on the Nockberge Trail.
A trail run as written in books – a mountain run in the classic sense: You imitate our three-day trail run through the Nockberge Biosphere Park from the Katschberg Bad Kleinkirchheim so many peaks that you will definitely stop counting. Most of the time you are on the way on broad summit ridges – always at the top, always with a wonderful view. Often on fantastic single trails in a great alpine landscape – a real cross trail. In terms of fitness, this trail run is a little more challenging than our offer on the Alpe-Adria-Trail and a little less adventurous than on the Krk Island Trail Run.

Trail running on the Krk Island Trail on the island of Krk.
That´s the place to be if you are a demanding and advanced trail runner looking for a special multi-day trail run are. On the island of Krk in Croatia, on our self-developed Krk Island Trail. Often karstic, demanding subsoil and sometimes only tracks with markings that are sometimes difficult to see are enough of a challenge to satisfy even the most experienced trail runners. On the other hand, you won’t see a soul on long journeys and you can enjoy an almost archaic karst landscape that is very impressive. A trail with a touch of trail adventure.

We are convinced that with our service options we will take the organization of multi-day trail runs from place to place to a new level. Yes, maybe even make it possible for individual trail runners without suffocating in the organization.
