The race starts with a ladies stretch 1 at 7:30 (8:00 for the fast team) in the misty Hönggerberg woods. Then runners 2 to 7 head out into Engstringen, up and along the Uetliberg and back into town, finishing at the beautiful University Irchel. The afternoon runners 8-12 start at 12:30 (13:00 fast team). The trail heads through Forch to Egg and comes back to Witikon. 2 short runs from there to the finish at Irchel complete the race. We meet at tents across the lake from the finish (see the picture for the view from our beer stop).

Runners hand over armbands to the next runners so it's important to turn up early.

Runners 1, 8 and 13 need to pick up armbands from the organisers.

We entered 3 teams this year. This is the latest list of runners, teams and slaves https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17K2iz6VTe9LOkwe2fe7ciC-xEQab6L228Cwwm6lmz6g/edit#gid=0. Feel free to look and comment if anything should be changed (access has been changed so only organisers update).
