    The Regulations

    All regulations by the Austrian authorities such as the stipulated minimum distance and all other rules of conduct in accordance with the Covid-19 regulations valid at that very time of the event must be strictly adhered to by all people present on own responsibility.

    The event takes place in all weathers.

    • Aid station Stoa Alm (11:00 a.m.)
    • Aid station Kampsteiner Schwaig (1:40 p.m.)

    Participants exceeding the cut-off time will be taken out of the race. Return transport is taken care of by the organizer.

    The organizer reserves the right to change or adapt program and the course if necessary. The organizer is entitled to modify or shorten the route in case of bad weather or other unforeseeable happenings. In case of deteriorating conditions the organizer reserves the right to cancel the race. Participants start at their own risk. It is recommended to take out additional insurance coverage for injuries and accidents.

    The organizer does not assume liability for losses or damages of any kind, which directly or indirectly are related to the participation in the event.

    The route runs along marked hiking trails and is marked where confusing or unclear by a marking team with signs, ribbons or flags or secured by marshals. There is no claim for continuous marking of the route, which would make an autonomous orientation unnecessary. Especially in case of fog, heavy rains, snowfall or other adverse weather conditions, the marking may disappear, be covered or not be seen in time.
    Therefore, a GPX file is made available for download for each competition and using a GPS device (mobile phone, smartwatch, etc.) is recommended for autonomous orientation. Unfortunately, sometimes it might happen that the markings are removed by third parties. The markings are removed section by section by the final runners. Then, the route is no longer marked.

    The scoring system

    There will be 2 separate age group evaluations for women and men:

    • M/W - 1976
    • M/W 1977 -

    The three fastest women and men in each age group will be awarded with a wooden trophy.
