Trail running at its finest
3rd to 5th of Spetember 2021
Still racing atmosphere
With "that winner never give up feeling" after the last regulation from our government last Friday, we gave everything and tried everyone, checked all possibilities and now like many other organizers we must postpone the Hochkönigman to 03.09. until 05.09.2021.
We don't fully bow to the situation and we can made at the Hochkönigman weekend of June 4th to 6th June 2021 the Austrian championship in 6h, 12h and 24h in trail running with up to 200 permitted participants including non-Austrians Athletes. The safety concept of the Austrian Skyrunning & Trailrunning Association for the implementation of the Austrian championship in 6h, 12h and 24h trail running was checked by the Federal Ministry of Sport and sent to the local authorities for approval.
In addition, we offer you the "Hochkönigman Special Edition", where you can compete with the best runners of the Austrian championship on the same weekend.
Of course, we are aware that it can also be the weekend from 03.09. to 05.09.2021 could already be planned other events and informed you about the alternative date almost 2 months ago.
We base our decision on the calendar of the International Skyrunning Federation, the Skyrunning World Series and the density of events on the respective weekends. Should you not be able to participate in a postponement on the alternative date, we have offered various options for your starting place via participant information.
Nevertheless, we hope to see you at a great event in September.
Doing nothing is not a solution. We will keep you up to date via social media and our newsletter.

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.
