Information about the Relay
The course has different surfaces. The majority of the distance is made of asphalt. Shorter passages are paved paths in parks, gravel and cobblestones.
The course is not vehicle-free. Please watch out for the traffic and follow the instructions from the race marshals.
There are traffic lights in Gelmeroda that are on at the race day.
The running course is very profiled in some passages (see elevation profile of the course). This is especially important when planning the race in terms of the time limit (including possible visits of the cultural breaks) as well as in the running pace. Times that have already been achieved on flat marathon routes are not easily realized on this course.

The change of runners will be done by handshake/high 5 (no batons)
Please note that there is not the option of an clothing drop-off. Each runner has to forward their cloth to their team mates.
Relay runners 2, 3 and 4 will be shuttled by bus to their appropriate starts.
The shuttle departure for the relay runners 2,3,4 takes place in the starting area in front of the new Bauhaus Museum.
The relay runners 1,2,3 are brought by shuttle from the relay change places to the finish area.
