Nikolaus Special has ended

Nikolaus Special has ended
Thank you for participating and donating!

This year's Nikolaus Charity Special is over. The last entries for DATEV Challenge Roth on 1st July 2018 have found their lucky owners. We’re really sorry but the demand for the coveted entries was so high that unfortunately not all wishes could be fulfilled.

All athletes, who have successfully registered, at the same time have supported our Charity program. Per slot sold Euro 50.00 are donated to people of the county who are in need. The main part of the donation will be forwarded to the Rother Tafel, who collect food and provide it to people who need it. The other part of the donation will be forwarded to volunteer-organizations who support our race since many years.

On behalf of Challenge, and our charitable organisations, we are very grateful to you for taking part in our St Nikolaus special!

Three registration options for DATEV Challenge Roth 2018 taking place on July 1st

1. Instant Registration on Monday, July 10, 2017, 9.30 a.m. at the main pavilion

At this year’s Award Ceremony at 9.30 a.m., athletes will have the opportunity to register for DATEV Challenge Roth 2018. Tickets will be allocated on a “first come, first served” basis. The number of start places is limited to 1,000 individual participants and 200 relay teams. Each athlete will be allowed to acquire one ticket (either for themselves or for another person). Payment can be made via EC card (preferred), Visa, MasterCard or cash.

In view of the huge interest last year, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that each athlete will in fact be able to obtain a ticket, which you will certainly understand.


2. Online registration for DATEV Challenge Roth 2018 on July 17, 2017

Online Registration on Monday, July 17, 2017, 10.00 a.m.

On Monday, July 17, at precisely 10.00 a.m. the online registration process will be launched.

Further slots will be allocated depending on the order of incoming requests. This will only be a pre-registration, in which athletes are asked to give their first name, last name, date of birth, nationality and e-mail address. Each athlete whose registration has been successful, will receive a confirmation via e-mail within 24 hours, including a personal registration code. The registration can then be completed using this code. Please note that the registration must be made within one week!

Since the race will again be booked up soon, we urgently ask everyone to get ready for registration at precisely 10 a.m. You’d better be fast!


3. Pre-Christmas Action on December 6, 2017, 12 noon

As a part of our charity pre-Christmas action, our registration lists will again be open on December 6 at exactly 12 noon, in order to allocate the very last remaining tickets. The action will follow the same principle as the online registration on July 17, with just one difference: By taking part in the action, athletes will again support a good cause. For each ticket sold on December 6, EUR 50 will be donated to people who urgently require help.


If you want to take part in the action, please make sure to be exactly on time.

We are very sorry if anyone is not lucky enough to obtain a ticket!
We are aware of the fact that the number of start places will unfortunately not be sufficient for all interested athletes. We are very sorry about that, but we cannot increase the total number of tickets for reasons of athletes’ safety and quality of our competition. We appreciate your understanding. Good luck to you !
