Nobody envisaged that it would become such a massive event with worldwide popularity. 
The WMRA Grand Prix champions of the world will again be crowned this Saturday at this magnificent mountain peak.

2013leogangoldstart.jpgThe Asitz Summit Mountain Run in Saalfelden Leogang has been classed as part of the Mountain Running Grand Prix by the IAAF for the first time this year and will probably feature a mountain running duel of the highest level between the ex-Mountain Running World Champion and new King of the Dolomites Petro Mamo and the three times World vice Champion, Azaria Teklay - both from Eritrea.
This unique encounter between two ‘gazelles' on Austrian soil will probably result in a sudden improvement in the track record held by Alexander Rieder.
Mitja Kosovelj, current World Long Distance Mountain Running challenge winner, will also test this new international course.
