Route Prologue Map Keynote 03JED

The Prologue: The race before the race

On June 13 (Start: 10 am) the athletes will have to hike, run, trail run and fly along a pre-defined route of about 35km around Wagrain - Kleinarl (just one hour south of Salzburg) – the three winners will each get one extra Night Pass, an incredibly useful tool for the main race if used strategically. But the Prologue is important for every one – after the group starts together in Salzburg on June 16, on day 2, the Prologue winner will get to start at 5 AM as normal – every other competitor must delay their start by the time they finished behind the winner. 

For local fans and media, the Prologue is the perfect place to meet the athletes and see the action up close and personal.

One of the most prominent mountains in Wagrain-Kleinarl, which turns from gentle alpine meadows into rugged terrain. At the top there are rocks, providing a wonderful view to the surrounding mountains, including the next Turnpoint: Grafenberg.

Griessenkareck is easily accessible by cable car (Flying Mozart) from Wagrain.

An idyllic family mountain in the middle of Wagrain-Kleinarl marks the second Turnpoint. Hikers in summer as well as skiers in winter find their fun on this mountain which is covered with gentle alpine meadows. We hope our athletes do so, too!

Grafenberg is easily accessible by cable car (Grafenbergbahn) from Wagrain.

The Hochgründeck connects several villages in Pongau and there are countless opportunities to climb up this mountain (but no cable car), making it interesting for the Prologue in case of not flyable weather conditions. The plateau on the top of the mountain invites the athletes as well as spectators to enjoy the surrounding landscape.
