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 again in 2020!
The breathtaking scenery and demanding routes offered by the Hochkönigman 2020 attract its competitors, men and women alike. The Hochkönigman 2020 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.
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!
