The 360 degrees view from the top is well known. The track is very well bluemarked. The race has approx 200 competitors.

This race has high service and technical level, with great prices, not only for the best to win.
Full service start- and price seremony area with parking, wardrobes, shower, toilet and kiosk with warm food, coffee and cold drinks.
The race starts at the sportsarena. The first 800 meters is flat on the old railroad trail/ gravel road, then you start at the trail and rockface. After 1,5 km you will meet the steepest part, 500 meters with 20 % descend. When you are done with this hardest part, you will be served cold water. After this you will meet varied and nice tracks, here and there almost flat, here and there some short steep parts. The track is not very technical challenging.
In the finish area on the top you will be met of hundreds of cheering people, with speaker service, water and fruit. And of course, you will get your medal there. But the greatest price is your own achievement!
A nice walk down again, enjoying the stunning panorama view, chatting with others, and the price seremony will start in a while.
