Registration for remaining places
On June 28 at 10am, the highly sought-after remaining places will be distributed.
There is no parking at the start, finish, or along the race route. For security purposes there is a temporary no-waiting-zone, which will also be signposted. Vehicles that violate the restriction will be towed at the owners' costs.
You can park for free at the Aachener Bendplatz starting at 3pm. The starting line is just a few minutes away by foot. The entrance will be labelled on the day of the event.
Race results can be viewed immediately after the run at the info booth and in the foyer of Otto-Petersen-Haus, Rütscher Straße 155. They are also published under Race Results the day after the event. Should any mix-ups or errors occur with the race results, you can raise an objection with the HSZ until Sunday.
Visitors are asked not to park their bikes in the finish area but rather in a special bike parking lot at Theodore-von-Kármán-Haus, Rütscher Straße 121. We ask that you do not lock your bike to the barriers during or after the event. These will be taken down and removed directly after the event.
Fairness and Consideration
We ask all runners to start in their assigned corral and to be considerate towards others during the race.
Late Registrations and Changes to Registrations
It is not possible to register on the day of the event. Participants are also not allowed to change their registration on the day of the event.
Participants' net time is measured. Individual time keeping begins once a participant crosses the starting line.
Address labels are available at bib pick up. Participants can enter a contact person and phone number in case of an emergency and stick the label to the back of the race bib.
Award Ceremony and Certificates
The race winners would enjoy it if you stayed after the run at the stage during the award ceremony. Once the last runners have crossed the finish line, certificates will be handed out to everyone who crossed the finish line between 8:30 and 10pm in the foyer of Otto-Petersen-Haus. It is possible to pick up all the certificates for a team together. Up to July 27, 2018 you can pick your certificates at the Service Point of the university sports center during the regular oppening hours.
By registering, every participant confirms that they are in good athletic health. The University Sports Center does not conduct medical checks.
We recommend all participants actively train.
Corrals and Bib Numbers
You are not allowed to give your bib to someone else. Only the registered individual is eligible to participate. Ineligible participants will be disqualified.
When you pick up your bib number, you will be assigned to a corral. When the gun goes off, the runners from the first corral start. Then, all the remaining participants move forward. A second starting shot is then fired.
Bib Number Pick-Up
The distribution of starting numbers (bibs) will take place in the Otto-Intze-Haus, Rütscher Straße 175. Single participants and participants of teams with less than ten members must pick up their numbers individually. For teams with more than ten members, the bibs will only be handed out to the team captain.
Further information will be published under Bib Number Pick-Up
Cancellations and rebooking are not possible!
Bags can be left at the bag drop in the ASEAG bus. The bag drop will be manned from 4 to 9:30pm at the latest.
