Anton Bruckner Run

The symphony of running

Where, if not in Upper Austria, where "sporting" through the diverse natural landscapes has developed into a real mass movement in recent decades, and in the middle of the marathon "stronghold" and provincial capital Linz, where the Linz Danube Marathon attracts up to 20,000 ambitious amateur runners from 80 nations to the spectacular start in the middle of the Voest highway bridge once a year, a new symphony will be created in 2024. One of running, dedicated to Anton Bruckner and his work.

It has not been handed down that Bruckner, in addition to his groundbreaking musical work and his attachment to the traditions of the Land ob der Enns, also paid particular homage to physical training and fitness. On the occasion of the 200th birthday of Upper Austria's great son, the Anton Bruckner running course is more of an offer to the current generation. At the same time, however, it also invites people to rediscover the work of the famous composer: Based on the number of Bruckner symphonies, the distance is exactly nine kilometers, ground markings with the symbol of the anniversary "Anton Bruckner 2024" mark the course, and acoustic signposts let the musical work of the master resound.

The grand opening of the 1st Anton Bruckner Run on September 15, 2024 is a run for the enjoyment of all sports enthusiasts, held according to the rules of the Austrian Athletics Association, and the finishers will receive a special medal and a fully-fledged snack in the start/finish area. The winners will also receive prizes.

Following the competition, the Anton Bruckner running track will be opened to the public as a unique, free-to-use, permanent "symphony of running".
