News and Changes for the 2016 Edition

As already communicated in our latest newsletter, there will be a few changes for the 5th edition of mozart 100®. 

New Route via a true "Place of Happiness"

At the suggestion of many participants we aimed to increase the trail portion of the route and to minimize the asphalt parts without departing massively off the track. We have now discovered a beautiful alternative for Scenic 100 and Scenic 55. The route no longer leads past Koppl, but over the „Mühlenwanderweg“ with the natural monument Plötz. Here awaits you a wonderful natural spectacle. 

More Self-Sufficiency

As part of the Ultra-Trail World Tour some important guidelines and policies apply to the participants of mozart 100® . One of those guidelines is the high self-sufficiency character with refreshment stations only offered about every 20 km. For mozart 100® we have agreed on a compromise. Refresehment stations with the usual full board will be offered about every 10 kilometres.

Zero Waste

As a trail event of international format the environmental aspect is of particular importance to us. We want to reduce waste as much as possible. Each participant of mozart 100® is therefore obliged to carry a reusable mug. Especially popular in the trailrunning scene are foldable plastic cups which are available in specialised stores. We will offer these cups also at cost price (approx. 4 Euros) at the BIB collection. 

World Premiere: The Finisher Assurance® powered by Generali

Months of preparation and anticipation of the big experience can quickly turn into major frustration: Excruciating pain, nausea, or simply overexertion can force particants to surrender before the finish line. As consolation for such events, we have invented the Finisher Assurance®: For whatever reason you do not finish your competition, you will get a free starting place for your competition in the following year. The only requirement is that at least 50% of the route have been completed and no disqualification took place. You can sign up for the Finisher Assurance® powered by Generali against a small fee at registration or at the BIB collection.

The supreme discipline Scenic 100 will also reward all finishers with 4 qualifying points (new ITRA system) for the Ultra-Trail® du Mont-Blanc 2017 and 2018.
