or F as in finish-line aid station
The excellent services of the finish-line aid station are probably one reason why we always have so fast finishing-times here in Roth. There are a large number of sanitary facilities and 150 massagers are waiting to pamper tired athletes. Of course, none of the athletes needs to go home hungry, since we have a large variety of food and drinks as well as fruit and cake.
or F as in food (Possibility to bring one’s own food and drinks)
Competitors have the opportunity to ask accompanying persons to provide them with their own food and drinks at all aid stations and up to 100m after every aid station on the bike course as well as the run course.
Athletes have to arrange themselves for a person to hand them their food and drinks. The race organizer does not assume any responsibility for such privately organized services.
G as in gravure- service
After the race there is a possibility for all successful finishers to get their medals engraved with their name and their personal end time. This service is offered directly after the race or on Monday 9th of July and is located at the finish aid station. The gravure- service is charged.
