Petzl City Nightrun Salzburg

Tina runs strong race and wins silver

Not yet fully recovered from the 27km race around the Wolfgangsee, Tina decided to integrate her tempo training into a competition. The Petzl City Nightrun in Salzburg, which was held as part of the Trail Running Festival, was just the thing. The 5.5km racecourse ran through the narrow streets of Salzburg. Thousands of spectators loudly cheered on the runners in perfect weather. A great atmosphere on a very demanding course. The race was approached from the start with an incredibly high pace and only the best could keep up in the leading group. It was a hard fight for the places of the elite ladies in the middle of Salzburg. In the last climb towards the end of the race, Tina gave it her all and broke away with a runner from Latvia. Then in the downhill towards the finish Tina had to let go a bit. With only 15 seconds behind the track specialist Agatha Strausa from Latvia, Tina was rewarded with the excellent 2nd place overall after 18:55 minutes.

51st International Wolfgangsee Run

Tina Fischl fastest European in the race around the lake

A total of 4,941 athletes from 48 nations took part at the 51st International Wolfgangsee Run last weekend in perfect running weather.

After Tina Fischl has already proven several times in recent weeks that her form is really outstanding at the moment, the endurance specialist wanted to measure herself against the international running elite on the classic distance over 27 km and 340 meters of altitude.

In the further course of the race, it was a hard fight for the podium places.

Lying in 3rd place, Tina worked her way closer and closer to the Kenyan athlete running in front of her, with whom she then delivered a very tough head-to-head race from kilometer 21 to the finish in St. Wolfgang.

In the final sprint, Tina Fischl had to let the 20 years younger athlete from Kenya go but was then extremely happy with her 3rd place Overall Woman, as she had not expected such a good placement here at this race.

Als schnellste Europäerin erfolge dann im Anschluss nach den Interviews mit der österreichischen Presse auch gleich die Flower Zeremonie.

As the fastest European woman, the flower ceremony followed immediately after the interviews with the Austrian press.

Sensational victory for Tina Fischl at the 25th Mountain Attack in Saalbach-Hinterglemm

Sensational victory for Tina Fischl at the 25th Mountain Attack in Saalbach-Hinterglemm

The “Mountain Attack” in Saalbach is the biggest and toughest touring ski race in Austria. Three different routes took place: the Schattberg Race (1,017 altitude meters), the Tour (2,036 altitude meters, five summits) and the Marathon (3,010 altitude meters, six summits). Around 1,000 athletes from 15 nations took part.

The conditions were challenging, with cold temperatures of -5 degrees in the valley and -15 degrees on the Schattberg. The athletes started in Saalbach and walked about 400 meters in full touring ski gear to the ski slope at the foot of the Schattberg. The Schattberg, with a gradient of up to 70 percent, is notorious and even experienced athletes had difficulties mastering the steep slope. Some athletes even fell and lost their skis.

Tina Fischl, an experienced athlete, wanted to be on the podium again after winning the 2nd place last year. She overtook the leader and fought her way to the top, where she finally finished as the overall winner.

After the race, the athletes celebrated their achievements and were already planning for next year’s Mountain Attack. The whole team thanked the sponsors of the event.

Here are the results of the Mountain Attack team:

Schattberg-Race: Tina Fischl (1st place), Alex Fischl (10th place), Christian Altmann (29th place), Dominik Marold (39th place)

Tour-Distance: Hans Jörg Wagmann (95th place), Georg Kusser (108th place), Daniel Schmidbauer (154th place), Josef Kusser (72nd place 45+)

Marathon distance: Mathias Burgstaller (52nd place), Michael Wagmann (140th place)

Victory at the Sauwald-Trail in Schardenberg

Tina Fischl unbeatable once again at the Sauwald-Trail

Only a few hours after her victory at the DHL Airport Nightrun in Linz, running ace Tina Fischl was at the start line of the Sauwald Trail in Schardenberg. For a long time, this very well-organized trail adventure in the Innviertel had been on the schedule of the mountain running specialist from Fürstenstein. Now, finally, nothing stood in the way. The well-known personal trainer decided here for the so-called Kösslbach Trail over 13 km with more than 300 meters in altitude. Immediately after the start at the sports field in Schardenberg, Fischl took the lead of the women’s field and set a fast pace. Already after about one kilometer into the course, where it went into the terrain, Fischl had a lead of several seconds over second-placed Martha Weber.

Along beautiful nature, the course led over forest and meadow paths with great views, before it went over a single trail into the Kösslbachtal. Here, too, the endurance specialist gave her competitors no chance and kept up the pressure. Even after about 9 km of the course, the runner of WSV Otterskirchen showed no weakness. The last hard climb up to the village of Asing had to be mastered now.

At the top her lead had grown to more than 2 minutes. The last kilometers back to Schardenberg then led again over beautiful trails in great scenery. Fischl of course didn’t let the lead slip away and crossed the finish line as the winner of the women’s classification with an excellent time of 1:02:58 hours.
Second place went to Martha Weber with a time of 1:05:26 hours.

Tina Fischl in an interview immediately after crossing the finish line:
“I am overjoyed that I could run a start-finish victory here today on the 13 km course, although I only slept 3 hours. Two victories within 12 hours – that has never happened to me before. Many thanks to the organizers of the event, it was really fun, and I will surely come again.”

DHL Linz Airport Nightrun – Tina Fischl runs low flying to the airport victory

DHL Linz Airport Nightrun – Tina Fischl runs low flying to the airport victory

A very special kind of running event took place at the airport in Linz during the night from June 30 to July 1, 2023. This major event, in which more than 2,000 male and female athletes were registered, is held in the middle of the airport’s runway. Immediately after the last plane arrived at 11:00 p.m., the runway was prepared for the athletes.

The start time at 0.00 a.m. certainly also was a very special challenge and really untypical for a running event of this kind.

All in all, a 5.0 km long circuit had to be mastered on the runway. The runway was not specially illuminated, so the runners had to concentrate very hard on the course, as the asphalt was slightly uneven.

The experienced exceptional runner Tina Fischl did not let all this upset her and was absolutely focused. Immediately after the starting signal Fischl ran behind the fastest men and none of the more than 700 starting women could follow up to her. Even after about half of the course Fischl didn’t want to leave anything to chance, she was almost alone at the head of the women’s field.

With an absolutely reasonable lead of over 1 minute Fischl flew towards the finish line and crossed the finish line overjoyed as the overall winner of the women in 18:07 min.
