SwimRun half marathon over 23.6 km (Updates November 2019)


The focal point is Schloss Ottenstein, which offers a unique panorama of start and finish as well as registration, award ceremony, race briefing and closing banquet in a medieval castle.


The participants over the half-marathon distance experience the most important part of the Ottensteiner reservoir with its untouched nature 9 running and 8 swimming sections (the 4.8 km) offer a lot of variety in this fjord-like landscape.


Start and finish in front of Ottenstein Castle is a unique experience. The nature trails, the ruin Lichtenfels, some power places and surprises as well as wonderful views arise on the whole route.


The water temperature at the Olttensteiner reservoir lake will be according to experience between 20 and 22 degrees.


The race starts at 10.30 with the trial athletes. The race briefing for the participants on the eve of champagne reception is mandatory in order to be instructed in all rules and hints. The half-distance track can be tackled individually or as a team.


The circuit is identical to the 2nd and 3rd loop of the Marathonstarter and so it is expected to give some encounter with the starters, who accumulate from the marathon loop at the Dobra Reservoir to our participants.


While the trial starters turn back to the castle at the 1st hotspot, the half marathon and the marathon starter go together for the long lap towards Zwettel.


Attention, please turn left at the central refreshment point on the last loop.
