Exploring the Magic of Salzburg through the Mozart 100 by UTMB 2024

After participating in the Mozart 100 by UTMB and experiencing an intense and unforgettable journey in 2023, I want to share with you some details about this wonderful race that takes place in a spectacular European setting. Imagine immersing yourself in the magic of the city famous worldwide for Mozart and embarking on an unforgettable adventure along the trails that wind through the stunning mountain scenery and the breathtaking and diverse nature of the Salzburg region, culminating in a unique finish in the UNESCO-listed old town of Salzburg. With six distances ranging from 105 to 9 kilometers, the Mozart 100 by UTMB® offers the right challenge for every level of experience. For athletes looking to gain their first trail running experience, the Mozart City Trail, Mozart Half Marathon, Mozart Light, and Mozart 100 relay competitions are ideal. Salzburg is unique in every aspect. Anyone who has ever immersed themselves in the magic of the famous city of Mozart cannot escape its allure. The harmonious blend of landscape and architecture, art and culture, tradition and modernity, all within a surprisingly small area, only adds to the enchantment of this place.

The Magic of Salzburg

Salzburg is the birthplace of W.A. Mozart and the filming location for “The Sound of Music.” The narrow streets and wide squares of this baroque city have rightfully earned a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The internationally acclaimed Salzburg Festival, the magnificent panorama, and countless other attractions make Salzburg a complete and incomparable work of art.

I hope this information inspires you and perhaps encourages you to consider participating in this exciting adventure in the heart of Austrian nature. Last year, I hit a wall a few kilometers from the end of the 100K, but I gritted my teeth and pushed through. Below is a quick video of the photos I took.
