Official Finish

The official cut-off is 11:30pm. You can also find all cut-offs for the different distances here in the menu “Distances”.

Team ratings

Team runs are great for strengthening team spirit, especially within companies and clubs. The focus is not on time, but rather on achieving a common goal. The team with the highest number of kilometers will be crowned the most athletic team!
Please note: It is not mandatory for teams to run in the same group. Each runner can choose their own distance (7/15/25/42/65/85 km) and competition. This allows the team members to run different distances (even in the K7 Nighttrail) and still be included in the overall team rating.

Individual ranking

In the individual evaluation there are the classes male and female. The fastest three runners in every distance get a glass trophy of the Glasfachschule Kramsach. Additionally, there are speciel prices for the three fastest men and women of every age category.

Aid Stations

Along the distances there will be aid stations with food and beverage for all participants. Here you can find refreshing drinks, fruit and vegetables as well as special treats from the region. At some aid stations it is also possible to access restrooms.

More details can be found in the menu “Distances“.
