The big anniversary!
It has been a tradition for 30 years: on a Sunday in April, which is Sunday, 29th April 2018 this year, everything is focused on running at the lake of Hallstatt. The International Half Marathon around the fjord-like lake of Hallstatt makes athletes from everywhere travel to Hallstatt, which is the starting point and destination of the half marathon.
The ever rising numbers of participants show how popular this event is among athletes. In 1987, about 187 athletes took part in the half marathon, and now the number amounts to 1370 athletes from over 10 countries! Those who want to watch the half marathon around the lake of Hallstatt should secure space for watching the event (the event can also be watched from the excursion boat "Goisern"). The starting signal will be given at 10.15 o'clock at the service station in the district of Lahn. After the half marathon, the award ceremony will take place on the marketplace.
