There's a reason why marathons are an Olympic discipline – this sport requires lots of strength. This is why runners have to train often and intensively. Anna Unterkofler is a runner herself and trains hard to pursue her passion. Plus, she lives in a region that is perfect for marathon training: Zell am See-Kaprun.
Everything you need is around the hotel
Steep mountainsides, long circular trails, fresh air and the lake right outside provide the perfect combination for marathon training. In addition to running, you can strengthen your muscles while swimming in Lake Zell, improve your condition with mountain running and can rest after your workout in the great outdoors or at the Kaprunerhof.
The app for running trails around our marathon hotel
The Zell am See-Kaprun region is a paradise for marathon runners, as there are many trails to choose from. Would you like to get an overview of them all? No problem! The Zell am See tour app is available for free for iPhone and Android and offers users maps, information about individual tours including difficulty or parking, and many helpful tips about each trail.
Train even when the weather doesn't cooperate
Sometimes the weather is so bad that training outside doesn't make any sense. So it's a good thing that the hotel's indoor pool is ready for you to swim a few laps. Just a few steps from the hotel is the Injoy fitness centre with great discounts for hotel guests. Here you can exercise using modern cardio equipment, stair steppers or in classes.
