SwimRun half marathon
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 11 running and 10 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.
NEW in 2020, the Lichtenfeld ruin will be integrated into the course by means of a trail and some small track adaptations will be implemented in the direction of Mitterreith.
The race starts at 10.30 together with the sprint 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 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 sprint 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.
- The water temperature is at the Ottensteiner reservoir lake experience 20 to 22 degrees. At least 1 week before the competition, there are the latest information and guidelines regarding clothing (neoprene prohibition, etc.)
- Marking: unfortunately you have to reckon with people who remove the markings. Because of this, in 2020, more emphasis will be placed on a 3-fold marking with ribbons, floor markings and signs. In addition, a graphic representation of the next route section is available for each route section.
- Split score for teams: new teams will be scored under 90 and 90 +
