The twelfth edition of mozart 100 by UTMB will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2024
The journey of the mozart 100 by UTMB began twelve years ago with 250 participants. 2022 was the largest field to date of over 2,500 participants from 70 nations, who took on on one of six distances on the trails along the beautiful mountain backdrop and through the breathtaking landscape of Salzburger Land.
With two ultra distances – mozart 100 (105 km and 5,400 m+, start at Kapitelplatz in Salzburg) and mozart Ultra (81 km and 4,300 m+, start in Fuschl am See) – experienced trail runners will find the perfect challenge.
The mozart Marathon (39 km and 1,650 m+, start in St. Gilgen), mozart Light (31 km and 1,300 m+, start in Fuschl am See), mozart Half Marathon (21 km and 900 m+, start in Koppl) and mozart City Trail (9 km and 300 m+, starting at Kapitelplatz in Salzburg) provide a distance suitable for all experiences. There is also the opportunity to take part in the mozart 100 as a relay team and share the adventure with friends and colleagues. What all distances have in common is the incomparable finish on Kapitelplatz in the heart of Salzburg’s old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.
mozart 100 by UTMB was one of the first events to become part of the UTMB World Series created in 2022, which combines the world’s best trail running events in extraordinary locations. The series consists of 36 events in 22 countries worldwide, where participants have the opportunity to qualify for the UTMB® World Series Finals, the UTMB® Mont-Blanc in Chamonix, France. The qualification takes place via so-called “Running Stones”, which the runners receive if they participate successfully and which they can use for the lottery of the race entries for the UTMB World Series Finals.
Josef Mayerhofer, race director of mozart 100 by UTMB says: “There are four categories with 20K, 50K, 100K and 100M in which participants can collect running stones and you need at least one running stone to enter the lottery for the UTMB World Series Finals at the respective distance, the UTMB, CCC and OCC race of the UTMB Mont-Blanc. If you successfully participate in mozart 100 by UTMB, you automatically receive a UTMB index that provides information about the level of performance – the higher the index, the higher the runner is rated.”
