The Katschberglauf is a mountain running event in the state of Kärnten (Carinthia) in Austria.

The race course is 10.5km long and mainly uphill (+769m of ascent, -86m of descent), starting in the village of Rennweg am Katschberg (1,143m) and finishing at the Gamskogelhütte (1,850m), a mountain hut in the Katschberg ski area.

It's a very scenic route that takes the runners—mainly on gravel roads and trails— through rural areas and forests and through the ski resort on the Katschberghöhe mountain pass (1,641m; pictured below).

The downhill bus transfer from the Gamskogelhütte to Rennweg is included in the registration fees.
