Run the Mozart100® 2018 with Advendure!

Από 21 Νοε 2017

The Mozart100® race is part of the Ultra-Trail® World Tour, as well as being a qualifying race for the famous Western States 100The race headquarters are in the gate to the Alps and birthplace of Mozart, the second most touristy Austrian city, the historic and beautiful Salzburg. Uniquely, this race brings you to a destination where you can visit a city with an enormous historical and cultural heritage, while at the same time participating in a now world-renowned ultra-trail race. What's more, runners who do not feel ready to tackle the ultra distance can choose between 5 other shorter individual races and 3 relay races, that will satisfy even the most demanding of athletes. 

The historical centre of Salzburg has been declared a Monument of Global Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. It is an open-air baroque museum, with many sights that will satisfy every preference. Cathedrals, impressive palaces, picturesque streets with cafés and beer gardens, imposing buildings and museums are just some of the sights that you can enjoy in the city. And for those of us who live and breathe for trail running, just outside the city's medieval cobbled streets is an untouched natural landscape with beautiful lakes, dense forests and mountain trails that lead to alpine fields and peaks with an endless, breathtaking view.  The Mozart100® routes are beautiful and exciting, and provide participating athletes with a wonderful experience and a powerful, exciting racing challenge, as described in our article last year, after we participated in two of the event's individual competitions.



For the second consecutive year, Advendure is an official media sponsor for the Mozart100. But that is not all; after last year's successful cooperation, we have joined forces with the organizers to create a travel package for all Greek athletes who would like to travel to Mozart's homeland and run in the beautiful mountains surrounding it, on June 16th, 2018. The package is designed to offer the racing experience of a major ultra-trail event, but also a great cultural and tourist experience in a historic city definitely worth visiting.

The Krimpelstätter restaurant, where dinner (3 courses) is offered on the first day, Thursday 14 June, is a traditional Salzburg restaurant serving excellent local beer, Austrian wine and dishes using exclusively local produce. Weather permitting, dinner can also be served in the restaurant's beautiful garden. The restaurant is 8 minutes' walk from the hotel.


The “Mozart 100® Sound of Music Tour” included in the package, will take place on Friday, 15 June. At 11 a.m., after breakfast at the hotel, a coach will pick us up at the Paris Lodron/Mirabellplatz station. The tour will take us to the setting of the famous musical “The Sound of Music”, and to other significant locations in the historical city of Salzburg and the beautiful landscapes of Salzkammergut. The tour also passes by some of the important spots included in the Mozart 100® route. The coach will return to Salzburg between 3 and 4 p.m., so that athletes can pick up their race packages and bibs.



The registration and pick-up process is followed by the second dinner, this time at the Stieglkeller restaurant, one of the most traditional restaurants in the city, right below Hohensalzburg castle and next to Kapitelplatz square in the heart of Salzburg's historical centre (event registration venue, start & finish line of the Mozart 100®). The view from the restaurant is amazing, and the beer produced on-site is perhaps the most traditional in the area!


On Saturday, June 16th, we run! The Mozart 100® races have different starting times, and some of them start in villages outside the city; however, everything (transport, schedule) is arranged down to the smallest detail by the organizers, and all necessary information can be found on the event's very comprehensive website. The awards ceremony takes place at 7:30 p.m. in Kapitelplatz square, after the races have been completed; if last year's experience is anything to go by, the ceremony is among the best and most enthusiastic we have seen, with loud music, a great mood, plenty of food and amazing local beer.



To recap, the “Mozart 100® - Advendure” package covers three nights' accommodation with breakfast and the meals described, the tour on Friday and the services described above, while the registration fee (via the event's website at a fixed minimum price throughout the registration period and with guaranteed participation in the race - ATTENTION: all athletes using the packages and registering for the race after 1 January 2018 must contact Ms Claudia Kolussi at Αυτή η διεύθυνση ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου προστατεύεται από τους αυτοματισμούς αποστολέων ανεπιθύμητων μηνυμάτων.

Salzburg is a beautiful and historic city definitely worth visiting, while the surrounding natural landscape, the forests, lakes and mountains are the ideal setting for an ultra-trail race. The package designed by the organizers and offered to Advendure is the perfect opportunity to make sure you don't miss this unique experience.
