The Zirbitzkogel Berglauf is a very scenic and challenging uphill mountain race in Austria's state of Styria.

The race features approximately 1100 metres of ascent over a 10km route.

Last year, Jürgen Mock (1:01:12) and Maria Frei (1:22:52) led a field of 131 runners to the finish line on top of the 2397-metre Zirbitzkogel. The race limit is 150 entries.

Starting in Sankt Anna am Lavantegg (1291m), a small village on the eastern slopes of the mountain, the first half of the race is run on trails through forests, the second half through alpine tundra.

After the race, participants walk back to the Waldheimhütte mountain hut (1614m) from where a bus takes them to the award ceremony in Sankt Anna.
