The Gastein valley is a hidden treasure just north of Salzburg in Austria. Centuries ago, people were drawn here by unbelievable gold deposits and an inexhaustible supply of hot thermal water. Later, poets, musicians, emperors and kings followed in their footsteps.
The Infinite Trails World Championships consists of the relay race over 124km/7400m and the 19km with 1500m climbing. Teams of three runners complete loops of 25 km/1900 m, 51 km/3400 m and 40 km/2100 m. There is also yoga, brunch, a community run and the open air cinema (weather permitting) on Saturday.
You can admire the waterfalls and alpine meadows, enjoy the routes through the three villages of the valley, and marvel at the views awaiting you from the summits of Gamskarkogel, Graukogel or the Stubnerkogel.
