Lake Achensee offers running enthusiasts the perfect opportunity to start the running season under professional guidance. The extended weekend from 2 to 5 July 2020 is perfect for all athletes who usually cover distances between five kilometres and a half-marathon. The participants will run together with expert coach and sports scientist Ben Reszel and learn how to train properly. Analyses, technical tips and lectures on training and nutrition also provide comprehensive information for the running season. Local guides will also take part in the races and share their insider tips for the best routes at Lake Achensee.
