Like for all sporting events the right gear is of great importance. Therefore we gathered a few tips and tricks for your:

  • Shoes: Spikes and shoes with dobbs are not allowed! We recommend running shoes with a solid profile.
  • Clothing: Since we hope for good weather we would recommend some shorts and a t-shirt. Kneepads or a knee-lenght shorts could prevent you from abrasions.
  • Gloves: We recommend you to at least wear biking-gloves. It will be easier on some obstacles!

Infos for 2020: Coming soon!

We have coorporations with really nice hotels!

You`ll find the detailed information on our Hotel/Parken web page.

Here you go!

The time will be measured with a chip, which will be attached to your feet.

The results will be published one hour after the run is over.

We will award the 3 fastest women and men no matter their age, also the 3 fastest women, men and mixed teams (the 4 fastest in the team get the prize) and the best couple team wins a prize as well.

Code of honor

Tips

What to wear

Here are some rules for the right outfit:

    • Shoes: Spikes are not allowed. We suggest running shoes with higher profile.
    • Clothes: We are hoping for good weather so shorts and a t-shirt will be fine.
      Knee protectors or knee length trousers can avoid abrasions.
    • Gloves: We suggest to at least wear cycling gloves to better overcome some obstacles

Specific run and strenght training with coordinative elements is a good way to train for the Grazathlon. Run over rough and smooth and if you have the chance to, run the official Grazathlon route beforehand. Pull-ups and other strength exercises won’t hurt too.
