Rheingausport Team Challenge Honigberg

DEU – Rheingausport Team Challenge Honigberg, March 2021

Event Description

This is a team event launched in 2021 by RheingauSport rheingausport.de, proposing a “virtual” format due to the pandemic situation caused by Covid-19.

The event is characterized by the following specific rules:

  • Register by sending a message to the organizer with information about name and age of the runners
  • Run as a team made by 2 components along the tracks of Rheingausport Tour Honigberg
  • Run between 20.03 and 03.04.2021 without any limitation in terms of repetitions
  • Run using as an appropriate app to document it
  • Make three photos of the team: one at the start, one during the run, one at the end

The final time is subsequently reduced according to the following rules:

  • Sum of the years above 80, bonus = 1 minute
  • Sum of the years above 100. bonus = 2 minutes
  • Sum of the years above 120, bonus = 4 minutes
  • Sum of the years above 140, bonus = 8 minutes
  • Mixed team (one man, one women), bonus = 1 minute
  • Women team, bonus = 2 minutes
  • Team with dog, bonus = 4 minutes

As in 2020 (Virtual Races | EmigranTrailer), given the impossibility or difficullty to attend official competitions, I decided to take part to this event created by Marcus-Rheingausport: I believe that these events are a good approach to keep the bonds alive, even at a distance, between people with the same passions.

Therefore, in the last weekend of March, myself and Thomas decided to challenge ourself in this Team event.
