Community Run presented by Austrian Airlines

Have you always wanted to go running with sporting legends? No problem: the Community Run presented by Austrian Airlines will give you this opportunity! Everyone is welcome to take part in our early morning run on Saturday! We start at 8:30 am at the adidas INFINITE TRAILS Arena (Alpen Arena Bad Hofgastein). You don’t have to sign up, just show up in your running shoes. Sporting legends like Biathlon Olympic Champion Sven Fisher and Biathlon World Champion Simon Schempp will join this morning run, too. Here, you can reflect on Friday’s Vertical Open, get in the mood for a full Saturday programme, and as a participating spectator get an idea of what the athletes are going to achieve on Sunday.

adidas TERREX Cinema

Between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Saturday the Alpen Arena turns into the adidas TERREX open-air cinema. Here, you can lean back and enjoy thrilling outdoor films – for free! We can promise you one thing: after watching those movies, you’ll want to dive right into your next adventure!

Public Viewing

For all football-crazy participants and spectators we offer public viewing on Saturday evening at 8:00 pm and present the World Cup game Germany – Sweden live on our giant video screen in the Alpen Arena.
