    FAQs Anmeldung & Vorab-Infos

    Registration

    Of course it can happen that you do not want to start. For such cases we offer a Flex-Option. The Flex-Option can be booked in the course of registration. This allows you to postpone your starting place to the following year.

    Transfer, sale, assignment or similar is prohibited according to the conditions of participation. For organisational and legal reasons, no exceptions can be made. If someone starts with someone else’s start number, both the start place holder and the person taking over the start place will be excluded from future events.

    Effort

    Basically with a half marathon. The half marathon time +15 to 25 minutes can be used as a general guideline for the final time.

    No, only between 3-8 participants run the entire course. Most of the participants will walk more or less often.

    Equipment

    The weather conditions in the high alpine terrain can vary. Basically, specific mountain running and trail running shoes are recommended. An ideal shoe is, for example, the Viking Footwear.

    For safety reasons, the use of poles is strictly prohibited. The risk of injury for 900 participants is too high on the partly narrow course.

    In high alpine locations, weather caprices cannot be ruled out even in summer. The organiser reserves the right to require participants to wear compulsory equipment at the start in the event of bad weather conditions. This will be announced the evening before at the latest. In such a case, a start without this compulsory equipment is not permitted. Minimum components of the compulsory equipment are a rucksack, functioning and charged mobile phone, a rescue blanket, gloves, hat/cap, long trousers and a waterproof and warm jacket. This measure is solely for the safety of the participants.
