On November 21-22, 2015, members of Run2gether met for their very first Run2gether Running Weekend in the idyllic town of Gmunden on Lake Traun.
Roughly 35 Run2Gether members came together from far and wide: Vienna, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Styria, Salzburg, Tyrol, and even from Baden Wurttemberg (Germany)! Gmunden’s accessible location and the pleasant Hotel Magerl were the ideal setting for our get-together.
In addition to runs on both Saturday and Sunday along the shores of Lake Traun, members had a chance to really spend time “2gether” during group activities. Saturday afternoon we visited the charming Christmas market at the lakeside Schloss Ort Castle with its unique illuminated lake decor and over 100 market stands and booths. The gorgeous castle rooms, regional delicacies, arts & crafts, brass band, and the 123-meter bridge, decked out for the holidays, all provided the perfect flair.
Afterwards, we met for our annual meeting to discuss the past year and make plans for the upcoming season.
Group run Sunday morning.
On Sunday, a private 1-hour cruise provided us with interesting details about the Lake Traun region and it many small towns.
Our wonderful weekend came to a close at a group lunch at Seehotel Schwan – after which, we all had to unfortunately be on our way.
Thanks to all our members for making our first Run2gether weekend a memorable one. We’re looking forward to continuing the tradition in 2016!
Best wishes from all of us at Run2gether,
