  • Tracking

    Decide if and by whom you would like to be tracked along the course.

    You have three options:

    •   “Public”– Anyone can follow you via the results page – simple and uncomplicated!
    •   “Code” – You decide who can track you during the race. You will receive a code that you can share with your supporters so they can see where you are at all times.
    •   “Private” – You do not want to be tracked.
  • Timing, Chips, Chip Return

    Time measurement is done exclusively with the ChampionChip!

    The ChampionChip is a small plastic transponder that has to be fastened on your running shoe (no metal contact!) and will measure your personal race time.

    Four different possibilities, your choice:

    1. Owner of a chip:

    Please provide your chip number (seven-figure combination of digits and letters) during the registration process.

    2. Chip purchase: you can purchase your chip during registration, it’s this easy:

    • Price: EUR 31,00
    • The amount will be billed together with your other fees
    • Your data will be saved in our system
    • The chip will be delivered via postal mail
    • You can use the chip for many different running events worldwide

    3. Chip rental:

    • You choose chip rental during registration
    • The one-time rental fee is EUR 6,00
    • Return the chip within two hours after the event

    4. Chip-rental with purchase option:

    • You choose chip rental during registration
    • The one-time rental fee is EUR 6,00
    • You do not return the chip but rather keep it after the event -> the purchase option is triggered!
    • EUR 25,00 (difference between the already payed rental fee and purchasde price) will automatically be billed to your provided method of payment.

    Chip return

    There are six different locations within the finish area where you can return your chip until 3:00 p.m.
    Not returning the chip until 3:00 p.m. will trigger the purchase option (see #4)

  • Time Limit

    The authorities require that we remove participants from the course who are unable to maintain the required pace. They will be transported to the finish area by bus.
