The race at this event will take part on a 6,7056 km (4.166667 miles) long round course on forest- and farm tracks at the disctrict of Rettert, a small township inside the natural park of Nassau. Rettert is part of the Einrich County and with 420m the highest municipality in this region.
The municipal forest at this township got hit extremly hard by the cyclone and the bark beetle. Therefore we will support here to reforest the destroyed areas. With each completed round on the race track at the Schinder-Trail® – Backyard Ultra we will come closer to our target, because every completed round will give us a high grade broadleef tree incl. a protection for damage caused by game animals. We will plant these trees together with the forestry office after the race.
Base fee: 24€ (at the registration)
Each completed round: 3€. That is the cost to plant a tree (all completed rounds on the course after the 16th round are free of charge, so a max. of 48,-€ has to be paid for the completed rounds). The fee for the completed rounds are payable after you finish or quit the race. Donations are warmly welcome.
“Attended-but Failed-Medals” for each runner. Trophy for the the winner (if there is one 🙂 ). Flight ticket to Nashville /TN if the winner gets an invitation to run at Big Dogs Backyard Ultra. But the main prize will get mother nature. That will be your donation for each completed round for the reforestation.
