SwimRun half marathon
Attention: According to Corona rules we will have rolling starts of 10- 15 sec. According to official government rules there must be at least 2 m distance between all athletes all time (in water and on trails)
The focal point is Schloss Ottenstein, which offers a unique panorama of start and finish, as well as registration, award ceremony, revenge lettering and closing banquet in a medieval castle.
The participants over the marathon distance experience the great nature of the Ottenstein reservoir with its untouched nature. 16 runs and 15 swimming sections (over 8.2 km - 1000 m the longest stretch of water) 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 castles, ruins, some power places, rocky exits and some surprises, as well as wonderful views arise on the whole route.
The circuit is identical to the 1st loop of the sprint and identical to half marathon. So there will be some encounter with the starters of the other distances. According to Corona restrictions the Marathon track will lead to a 2nd loop of 12 k again on the Half-Marathon loop.
While the trial starters turn back to the castle at the central hotspot and boarding point, the half marathon and marathon starter are heading for the long lap towards Zwettel.
Attention: please turn left at the central refreshment point at the second loop.
In total, 9 refreshment stations with water, iso drinks and carbohydrates(in colder temperatures with tea / soup) will strengthen you accordingly.
This race starts at 10.00 - solo and as a team. The race briefing for the participants will be the evening before at 6 pm via Facebook Livestreaming. Questions can be posted and the video will be available afterwards as a video and is mandatory to watch concerning all rules and hints.
