A New Year, a New Course!


220 km - 7000 change in alltitude - one lap

The Salzkammergut Trophy - Austria's biggest MTB Marathon - celebrates its 10th anniversary on July 14, 2007. On this occasion the "original course" will be signposted throughout the whole "Inner Salzkammergut"!

The first half of the extreme distance runs from Altaussee to Bad Ischl and back to Bad Goisern. It remains almost unchanged and is therefore identical with the UCI Marathon WM course of 2004.


However, instead of a second lap the course will continue again through Obertraun, Hallstatt und Gosau like in the years from 1998 until 2003. There will be also some totally new legs as for example the new build bikeway along the East bank of the Hallstätter lake as well as a new bike passage between the Hallstätter Salzberg and Rossalm towards Gosau so it's not necessary anymore to carry one's bikes.
The course leads through the UNESCO World heritage region Hallstatt-Salzkammergut - one of the most unique and spectacular areas in Europe. Highlights of this course are the Dachstein Mountain ridge and the track through "the Ewige Wand” - the Eternal Wall.


The Trophy B-distance has been now completly relocated to thenew course and is going to be about 110 km long. The well established 27km and 53km short courses remain unchanged.

For downloading the map of the new courses please see the Trophy homepage. Registration is already possible!

We are already looking forward to your participance and wish you all the best for 2007!
