NEW ST-MS Half Marathon Bad Waltersdorf 2020

As our running track has fulfilled the AIMS criteria since last year, the Styrian Championship in Half Marathon will take place for the first time.

And this is how it works:

  • You are a member of the ÖLV.
  • The registration takes place

team competition

Join in with your colleagues, friends and members!
There is a TEAM COMPETITION for companies, friends and clubs! Motivate your employees and members for a common exercise afternoon in Bad Waltersdorf! It’s worth participating.

And this is how it works:

  • 1 team consists of 3 participants (mixed m/f, min. 1 participant m or w) and needs a team name
  • The running time of the participants is added up and evaluated for the team. Each runner will also be included in the individual classification with his or her time.
  • All participants must start in the same competition and register separately for the race.
  • The following running classes are planned for the team classification:
  • 11.40 am - smoveyWALK
  • 11.40 am - nordic walking
  • 13.30 am - beginner's run
  • 13.30 am - main race

relay competition

Sharing is fun – why not at the half marathon!
Also this year we offer a relay competition in the half marathon. Run with your colleagues, friends and members – it is said that common ground connects why not in sports as well. “Cheering and cheering” which then tastes a little glass at the main square much better than team, if you have managed the round with bravura.
And that’s how it works:

  • 1 team consists of 5 participants (mixed m/f, min. 1 participant m or w).
  • Each participant runs a round of 4.2 km, the final finish is a slap on the wrist.
  • The running time of the participants is added up and evaluated for the team. Each runner will also be included in the individual classification with his or her time.
