This is now the second year I've run this race, 2017 I did the 100k, this year I ran the 64k.
Still a relatively small race for a WIUT race, the 100k had less that 200 entries and the 64k less than 300. That being said, the organisers have continued to enhance the set up, and expanded the facilities both pre and post race.
The course of the 100k covers the entire route of all the other distances, but goes off on the extra 40k loop at the 32k point at Fuschl.
The route for all races starts off with pretty much 10k of flat, with slight undulations. It's all too easy to launch off like a bullet, but this race have several stings in its tail. The next 20k has some harsh climbs, some which can be technical in wetter weather.
If you're up for the fun packed 100k, after the 32k turn off its a VERY severe ascent, full of tree routes and loose footing.. An equally exciting descent brings you down to the next aid station, where, as with all the finely stocked stations, you are rewarded with a good selection of fresh fruit, water, coke, red bull, energy gels/bars, cake, pretzels, biscuits...
But these you will need. A monster climb of over 1000mtres , which for the last two years has been bathed in particularly warm weather, beats the legs relentlessly. And so does the equal amount of steep descent down to Fursberg. It's just the mountain race that keeps on giving.. And no surprise that the 100 is a qualifier for Western States and gives 5 UTMB points!!
After a little respite around the lake, another lovely steep 800m climb and descent take you back to the aid station at the 32k point, (now the 72k point😉) .. And into the home 32k..
The climbs late on in the race are simply hideous. Tired legs, steep steps, technical descents before you finally reach the city to run through the tourists to the spectacular finish line..
Is this race hard? Yes. Very. Is it worth it? Oh, hell yes. Austria is a stunning country, and this race makes the most of it. It's a well organised, well marked race, where you can tell the organisers want to give a great experience.
Totally worth doing.

2018. I did the 61k race which is actually 63+k. The race was very well organized with a complete website and very responsive race team when asked questions via email. The race briefing and packet were complete and pretty much prepared us with the basics. The aid stations are well stocked and manned; many volunteers. While the organizers don’t commit to be able to stop traffic at all crossings, they did man and stop traffic at most of the busy traffic crossings.
The course map is accurate with the exception of the distance. The vertical climbs were more steep than other ultras, but only a few segments were particularly technical. There was a considerable amount of the route that was runnable which helps on overall time. After the final water stop there is 2.5km of 200m vertical climb & decent (which feels like much more) which incorporates some technical trail and many, many steps (both up and down). This final 2.5km is brutal when your legs are already toast.
