The Porsche Salzburg Festungstrail starts at the Kapitelplatz, the heart of Salzburgs' old-town. First, the runners run through the festival district and then it goes steeply uphill: two laps around the monk- and the fortress mountain. In between the Kaiviertel will be discovered and provides the runners some obstacles. Paving stones and extremly narrow streets require the highest concentration.
After two laps follows a steep increase up to the fortress Hohensalzburg with spiral stairs and a finish in the courtyard. The route to and through the fortress Hohensalzburg is unique in the world and definitely a worthwhile destination for the exertions. This competition can be completed either as a single competition or in combination with the Gaisbergtrail.
The following control times are planned:
- End 1st round transit Kapitelplatz: 05:10 PM
- End 2nd round transit Kapitelplatz: 06:15 PM
- Finish Fortress: 06:30 PM
