RACE DAY INFORMATION
Wearing a bib is not mandatory.
However, if you really would like to feel the vibe of the race, just click on the start list, find your name on the list, download your BIB number from the right side of the list, print it, and pin it to your shirt. 😎
The distance can be completed anywhere, there is no on-site restriction.
You can complete the distance at any time between October 2-12 (UTC+02:00), regardless of the day and time of day.
There is no time limit at the virtual running event, you don’t have to run from the sweep bus 😉
The distance can be completed by running or walking, but recording the activity has to be done in one cycle, with a one-time recording.
As it is a virtual event, the distance is completed individually.
That means you will need to take care of your own refreshment. We recommend that you have enough liquid and energy supplements with you during running.
TOP TIP: Are you missing someone from your side? Invite your friends and family, ask them to be your refreshment team. 😉
- You can start the race on 2 October at the earliest and you must finish it by 12 October 11:59 p.m. (UTC+02:00) at the latest.
- You must run or walk the entire distance in one cycle, with a one-time recording.
- Track your run with a freeware running mobile application such as Strava, Endomondo, or with your sports watch, or with a treadmill.
- If the completed and verified distance is shorter than the selected distance, the result will not appear in the result list.
- If you run a longer distance, you must specify the completion time of the full run, not the part-time corresponding to the selected distance (14 km).
The activity should be recorded in two sections or the sports watch/application should be stopped for the duration of taking a photo of your sports watch or the app, or the treadmill display. Then continue running as you like. This way you can get the exact time of completing the 14 km distance. Submit only your race time for the original distance!
- Make proof of your running:
- Make your online recorded activity (via Strava, Endomondo, etc) public and share the link with us
- Make a photo of your sports watch or the treadmill, or take a screenshot of your mobile, where the completed distance and race time is clearly visible.
Good to know
If using GPS, we recommend that you check whether the GPS works correctly before and during the run. Make sure that the satellite connection is active at both the start and during the running.
- After completing the distance, please upload your time to the Result Submit Page until 13 October, 12:00 p.m (midday, UTC+02:00), at the latest. If you have missed this deadline, please write us an email to the [email protected] email address!
- To be able to successfully submit your results you need to provide the following information:
- Email address
- Registration number (You will receive your registration number in the confirmation email of your registration)
- BIB number (find your bib in the confirmation email of your registration)
- The distance of your choice

- You can verify your results by the following methods (choose one):
1. By sharing a PUBLIC link to your training (e.g. Strava, Endomondo). Don’t worry, your training will not be shared anywhere, it is needed for verification purposes only.
2. By uploading a photo that clearly shows the details of your training (distance and finish time). You can take a screenshot of your phone showing your results on the exercise app, or take a photo of your sports watch or the treadmill’s display. The only thing that matters is that the picture must clearly show the accomplished distance and the finish time.
Your photo will not be shared anywhere, it is needed for verification purposes only.
After you have submitted your result successfully, you will receive a confirmation email.

AFTER RACE INFORMATION

Results lists will be shared continuously from around 16 October. Final results lists will be compiled based on the provided finish times–not all submission will be examined, but any submission may be randomly inspected based on the uploaded proof.
Clearly unrealistic results will not be part of the results lists. Every participant is responsible for the accuracy of the data they provide.
If you cannot see your result, or you find incorrect data, you can send us a modification request until 19 October at the latest to the [email protected] email address. Please note that we will be unable to process requests sent after that date.
There will be no prizes at this event.
Every participant will get a Finisher’s medal, a technical Race T-shirt in the size chosen during registration.
Gifts will be sent via post to the participant’s address given during registration. Please make sure to give an address where you can receive the package!
We will package the gifts and send them via post around November – please expect the packages to arrive at your place accordingly (it might take time to arrive at farther countries).
WE WISH YOU HAVE A GREAT TIME!
