Thousands of green bags await the single and the relay-team starters.

There they are, meticulously sorted and lined up on tables and floors: the objects of desire for all the athletes, who were able to snatch a starting spot for the single or the relay race at DATEV Challenge 2018.

A sea of green bags, numbered from 1 to 4701, filled to the brim with everything the long-distance athletes need for the start of this Sunday's race.

Today, the check-in zone opened two hours earlier than in the last years. Before that, last preparations were finalized, the technical equipment was checked one last time and then they were ready to go. At exactly 10 AM, the first starters-to-be were let in. That's when the “quiet before the storm”-phase ended abruptly: Many athletes wanted to get checked-in as soon as possible and had already waited outside the closed doors for quite some time.

Following a request brought forward by many athletes, TEAM Challenge has extended the opening hours of the check-in zone: Today and tomorrow, the zone will be open from 10 AM to 7 PM. On Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM.
