M DISTANCE- half marathon
Start times Saturday 11 May 2024
Block 1: 11:00 am (professional and ambitious)
Block 2: 11:15 am (recreational runner and dogs allowed)
Please be at the starting area 30 minutes before the start. We cannot control in advance who runs how fast the distance. Therefore, please register for the respective block according to your own assessment.
400 meters after the start, the first single trails begin, on which it is hardly possible to overtake. For this reason, it has proven successful that two starting blocks are offered at the M distance.
On May 6, 2023, it’s that time again – the church bells in Marquartstein ring in the half marathon distance. The first runners of the 60 km and 42 km distance have already run through the finish area. Now, off we go for the 21km! The “half marathonis” can run over the southeastern ridge to the Hochplatte. Past the town hall of Marquartstein, the first trails in the forest start 300m after the starting line. Single trails and short forest paths bring you to the summit of the Hochplatte. The 360-degree view makes up for the exertion a little before the challenging downhill begins. At the Hochplattensattel you can have a short snack, we will record your split time, and you can “chase” the runners of the XL and L distance. Passing numerous huts, you will have a view of the Chiemsee and the venue, Marquartstein. The last kilometers lead back to Marquartstein on the flowing trails.
ATTENTION: There may be changes to the route at short notice. These will be communicated before the race, at the race briefing, and via newsletter!
