To provide more comfort running through the alleys, on the stairs and through the buildings, participants will start in several waves with a gap of 15 minutes in between.
Preliminary departure of waves:
- 09:00 Uhr Wave 1
- 09:15 Uhr Wave 2
- 09:30 Uhr Wave 3
Why this procedure in waves?
This starting procedure will, along with the hourglass start, should prevent long queues in the smaller passages, to make sure everyone can fully enjoy the trail. The hourglass start consists of a narrow passage at the start line. This way it takes longer to start the race, but allows a smoother run once you on the trail.
In which wave will I start?
Per wave 500 participants will take the start. A couple of days before the event, everyone who registered individually will receive a confirmation mail with the race number and wave.
Can I start in the same wave as my friends/colleagues/family?
You can always start in a later wave than assigned, but never in an earlier wave. If you want to run together, you can start together in the assigned wave which departs the last.
You are assigned to wave 1 and your running partner to wave 2.
You can NOT start together in wave 1.
You can start together in wave 2.
