8. Hochkönigman Trailrunningfestival
2nd to 4th of June 2023
For the 7th time: Trail running with one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world. For the 7th time: Trail running in the toughest of conditions. For the 7th time: feelings of elation for thousands of enthusiastic trail runners. This is what the Hochkönigman is all about!
Over the course of a few years, the Hochkönigman has become one of the most popular trail-running festivals in Europe. This comes as no surprise as the Hochkönigman Festival trails offer athletes a perfect challenge of a very special kind. Trail running is not for everyone, but we would like to have all YOU with us!
The breathtaking scenery and demanding routes offered by the Hochkönigman attract its competitors, men and women alike. The Hochkönigman is perfect for everyone who relishes the thought of taking on the challenge of a natural trail through the beautiful mountains of the Hochkönigman massif. The Hochkönigman is waiting for YOU.
HOCHKÖNIGMAN GOES INTERNATIONAL
The Hochkönigman Trailrunning Festival is not only the most popular* and by now also one of the biggest trailrunning events in Austria, but it is now also officially allowed to present itself as the first Austrian venue of the Skyrunner World Series with the Hochkönig Skyrace powered by Merrell since 2020.

Hart aber geile Veranstaltung. Wer eine Herausforderung braucht ist hier Richtig. Schöne Trails, knackige Anstiege und flotte Downhills. Geiles Panorama und die Leute sind echt super nett.
Tolle Veranstaltung, gemacht von Trailrunnern für Trailrunner!
I love this Trail Running festival! The Speed Trail Race was awesome - the track, views, mountains, nature, all runners, organization. Everything. Next year I will be definitely back.

New since 2018 is the extended EXPO and event area. It offers the athletes even more space for preparation and follow-up. For the public, the new grounds offer more space to be there and for the varied show program of the Hochkönigman. The gastronomy and trade fair area should not be missed, and in 2021 new products and top products for trail running will also be on offer here.
