My name is Jonathan and I am the founder of Austrian Trails. I'm originally from the UK and I have been running for over 10 years, mainly on the roads before discovering a love for trail running 4 years ago. After a few months of finding it difficult to know where to run and there being no easy way to plan routes for the trails (plus getting lost a few times), I decided to create Austrian Trails to make it easier to plan trail runs and to help more people discover trail running. I want to help grow the sport and for Austria to be recognised as a lead destination in the trail running scene due to its amazing natural landscape and community. I can often be found on the trails near my home in Vienna or off exploring new areas in Austria.

Austrian Trails is just getting started and I hope to be able to expand the team soon, there will be a dedicated career section once jobs become available.
