Why do the Ultratrail and the Ehrwald Trail start late in the evening and not in the morning as it you used to be?
The idea behind this: we also want to welcome the slower runners at the finish line. Since we are only allowed to sound the finish area on the Richard-Strauss-Platz until roundabout midnight, we have adjusted the start/finish times accordingly.

I am an elite runner, do I get a free race number and/or accommodation?

That means: Men must have at least a PI of 850, women 700. Furthermore applies:
- A maximum of 10 free places are reserved for elite runners per competition. First come, first served.
- No entry fees will be paid retroactively.
- Free accommodation will not be offered for elite runners.
