Running makes you happy. Trail running is addictive. Do you love feeling that "runner's high" and the rush of endorphins that accompany it? Then the Schlegeis 3000 speed trail is the perfect race for you. Run a distance of 17km over high alpine terrain whilst conquering a demanding 1,200 altitude metres. A real challenge for both professional and amateur runners. The race starts directly by the dam at the Schlegeis Reservoir at 1,800 metres. From there, competitors run the narrow footpath along the "Neumarkt Circuit" including parts of the "Berlin High Alpine Trail".The trail has three check points, which competitors must pass. These control points don't only help with orientation, they also make sure that the race is fair and that no competitor takes a shortcut. Refreshment stands along the route make sure that runners can keep their energy levels topped up until they reach the finish line. They will provide everything necessary to help you keep going until the bitter end- including some motivating words of encouragement!
