The Mozart 100 not only offers a great deal for experienced ultra runners but also for everyone who wants to experience the beauty of the Sound of Music scenery. For those who want a more leisurely run, there’s also the Scenic 55. The course of Scenic 100 and the Scenic 55 takes the participants from Mozartplatz in the festival town through one of the most magnificent regions of Austria with its beautiful forests, meadows, hills, rivers and towns to the Fuschlsee Lake and back again.

Looking to run the Mozart 100 in 2019?

The itinerary is yours to enjoy – we’ll provide you with your 3 Night Marathon Weekend Package but the rest is up to you.

My recommendation? Grab a car and enjoy the magnificent scenery this area has to offer. There are many local tours you can do and there is no end to the stupendous views you’ll see. RunFun Travel can recommend places of interest and driving tours you might be interest in.

From Salzburg it’s you can pop into Germany and drive the Romantic Road; take a day trip to Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain; or immerse yourself in the history and culture of Salzburg and visit Mozart’s birthplace, the Hohensalzburg Fortress. And for those who just love a bit of the movies, you can take the Sound of Music Tour and see where the hills really area alive.
