The Wolfgangseelauf & Salzkammergut Marathon is held every year in October at the Wolfgangsee, a 10.3km-long lake in the Salzkammergut region in Austria.

It's a hugely-popular running event that attracts approximately 5,000 entrants in four races:


Race distance Ascent, Descent Start area
5.2km +61m, -55m Strobl
10km +34m, -28m Gschwendt
27km +295m, -295m St. Wolfgang
+417m, -335m Bad Ischl


The finish line is in St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut on the northern shore.

The 27km race is one lap around the Wolfgangsee. This race generally attracts a strong field of international top runners. The course is a super-scenic run on a mixture of asphalt roads and cycleways and gravel paths. The route includes a steep up-and-down section across a wooded hill between Sankt Wolfgang and Sankt Gilgen.

The 42.2km marathon takes the runners from the spa town of Bad Ischl to Sankt Wolfgang (15km gently uphill on a country road) and then, together with the 27km runners, around the lake.
