St Gilgen International School Runners took part in the Wings For Life in Vienna last year with a team of 25 people age ranging from 11 to mid-60s.
Our aim then was to get the whole school community inspired to feel empowered through physical activity and raising money for an incredible charity.
From students, to parents, alumni and staff, we became a global team running 226km, ranking 430th in the world.
This year we are excited to host Anita Gerhardter for a day in April, who we hope will further inspire even more runners to take up the mantle. Our goal this year is to better our achievements of 2017 with more members of our school and local community taking part in the Wings for Life run, and to be one of the largest app runs in the world.
The course is set on the shores of Wolfgangsee in the Salzkammergut, with amazing mountain and lake views you can run up to marathon distance on the loop run from StGilgen to St Wolfgang. The course consists of tarmac and paths which wind through the beautiful scenery and nature that we call home. All tracks and paths are all wheel chair friendly.
For those of you who want to run a shorter distance the first 6km of our route is loop that returns to our start at St Gilgen International School where there will be refreshments for competitors and supporters.
