Meet at the Altdorf Sportplatz at 1715 for a bier and quick overview of the run.
Bring everything you'll need to survive a 100 mile route
that courses over some of the Schoenbuch's most interesting terrain.
We have a list of planned aid stations. However it will mostly likely be in form of one RV following the main group around the course!
That said if we might split up into groups depending on pace it might not be possible to have those available
to everyone at anytime,
you've been warned!
- VP1: 20km Naturfreundehaus Herrenberg
- VP2: 35km Mönchberg
- VP2: 45km Saurucken
- VP2: 67km Rittweg
- VP2: 90km Einsiedel
- VP2: 104km Steinbrennerhaus
- VP2: 127km Teufelsbruch
- VP2: 143km Weisser Stein
Check the overview chart here: LAAMVP211005.pdf
In addition some wells and or water taps might be available here:
- Plattenbrünnle (well 11/11km)
- Königsbrünnle (31/10km well)
- ESSO Tankstelle (70/23km off-course!)
- Häfner Brunnen Schaichtal (111/21km well)
- Neuenhaus Sportplatz Tennisplatz (117/6km water tap)
- Dettenhausen Sportplatz (136/10km water tap)
- Schwabentreue (144/8km well)
- Lange Halde Brunnen (you won't need this anymore so close to the finish line ;))
Also an rough estimate and info on distances to possible aid stations one could take a look at
Andreas timings during SUT winter edition
in 2017 where Start/Finish also was in Altdorf.
Route conditions vary with much of the course made up of single track, forest paths and roads.
Plan for all weather including COLD and WET night conditions
Bring enough food and filled hydration containers to travel at least 30-40km without re-supply (as noted above it is now very likely that we will get support
and possible option to have small gym sack sized drop-bag "Turnbeutel").
Wear and bring bug juice. Ticks still active!
This is a non-supported 100 mile run. The course is not marked
. A GPS device
, map and compass or both are highly recommended.
You will get a copy of the GPS track in the coming days. Bring a headlamp
with spare batteries.
Although mobile coverage is very spotty in many places in the Schoenbuch, bring a mobile device.
German emergency services are available at 112. Bring ~30 Euro to purchase food and drink along the route.
Bring a medical face mask
to enter shops or Guest Houses, a photographed copy of your COVAX on your phone and your ID
The rest of your packing list is up to you.
Plan for the course to be wet, cold and muddy.
We will talk about self-extracting over a bier at the Sportplatz before we take off.
Like last year, we'll plan to run as a group or groups with the objective of completing 100 miles in less than 30 hours on foot and with very little support.
COVID, injuries and the rest of life got in the way of racing and running this year.
It will be good to run this course together on 22 October.
Let us know if you care to join in by 17 October. Let's talk if you'd like to invite others.
We say that as this is a private, unsanctioned, fun run among friends
... looking forward to rambling on with you in October. Andre & Andreas
