Obstacle Course Race ebock Mürzathlon

5th September 2020

Mürzzuschlag, Styria, Austria

An adventure and obstacle course run across the styrian city Mürzzuschlag.

What is an Adventure Run?

Instead of running monotonously your kilometers you experience lots of adventures, fun and team spirit during an Adventure Run. You run across the city, wood, on asphalt streets and trough water. Up- and downhills are alternating. Some of them you will run. Some you will have to walk. You will pass adventurous places which you are only allowed to enter during this unique event. Obstacles you will have to conquer, adventures you have to master.  An Adventure Run is an unrivaled experience which will challenge you and reward you with loads of pride and endorphines in the end. Some sportiness presupposed the Easy and Fun distances are feasible for everybody. The Mürzathlon is a special obstacle course run – so take part and excape your daily routine.

“You must go on adventures to find out where you truly are.”

5, 9, 16, 21 or 42 kilometers? All distances – except Hero – lead trough unique routes. So you only have to pass every part of the track only once. As a Hero you will have to conquer the Survivor distance twice.

Attention: An Adventure Run will challenge you differently than an “usual” running event you know. If you are unsure about the distance, go for the shorter one. The kilometer and height information are just approximate values, which can slightly vary during the race.
