SwimRun Sprint


The focal point is the Ottenstein Castle, which offers a unique panorama for the start and finish as well as registration, award ceremony.


The participants of the sprint distance experience the heart of the Ottensteiner reservoir in the immediate vicinity of the dam. 5 running and 4 swimming sections offer a lot of variety.


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.


New in 2020, the ruins Lichtenfels built into the trail route and thus a special experience for our participants.
