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.”
