SwimRun Trial Distance
The pivotal point is Ottenstein Castle, which offers a unique panorama for the start, finish, but also registration, award ceremony and race briefing in a medieval setting.
The participants over the sprint distance experience the core of the Ottenstein reservoir in the immediate vicinity of the dam.
Five running and four swimming sections offer a lot of variety.
2023 offers a complete redisign of the route with new trails and new perspectives.
Start and finish in front of Ottenstein Castle is definitely a unique experience. The natural trails, the Lichtenfeld ruins, some power places and wonderful views arise along the whole route.
