On Saturday, September 24th 2022 the focus of the 23rd WACHAUmarathon is on the young runners!

These young runners have always been important to the organizer, Michael Buchleitner, as he himself went through all the stages from young runner to late top athlete and three-time Olympic competitor.

The WachauJUNIORmarathon offers distances ranging from 200 – 2.100m for children and youth aged 3 to 16.

The start and finish line are in the official finishing area of the WACHAUmarthon.

The schools and clubs with the most participants will receive subsidies of up to €500,- for their school or association.

Each participant gets a finish medal and a WachauJUNIOR-T-Shirt.

In order to make the journey to Krems easier, the WACHAUmarathon launched the “free bus campaign” together with the NÖ Sparkassen.

From a number of participants of 50, from a club or school in Lower Austria, the “NÖ Sparkasse” bears the costs for the transport to and from Krems.

Be there when the next generation races through the streets of Krems!
