Once again I would like to thank you and your entire team. This weekend and the experience was a dream come true for me, start to finish. The atmosphere you created was exciting and challenging, but I felt encouraged and supported every step of the way. My husband and daughter were able to join for support from 50km on and also had the same response. I have already recommended the event to all my running friends
Thank you! I am happy, proud, and above all, I feel content!
All the best, and I am sure I come again
This this perfect race for the ultrabeginners and those, who want to settle records. High level organisation, comfortably hard rout, beautiful views, warm support along the way - all for good results! I recommend Taubertal100 for amateurs and professionals. And encourage you to beat my 100miles rout record :)
Taubertal 100k was my first attempt at 100km. Th organization is impeccable, from registration to end of course medal!
The course is friendly an beautiful. Drink/nutrition stations are perfectly situated and stocked. People are supportive and smiling all a long the way.
I'd recommend it warmly to anyone!
Can't promise I won't come back...
I'm Roberto Crippa, ultrarunner from Italy, province of Lecco, on the Lake of Como. This year, I partecipated in the Taubertal 100, running the 100 Miles.
If you are looking for a wonderful race, I have to tell everybody that this is The Right Race.
The organization is simply the best: kindness, seriousness and professionalism. Really, I so appreciated what the volunteers did at the refreshment points. And what to say about the path, immersed in history and nature.
The memory of this race, will stay with me forever. Sport teaches a lot, and I think the contribution of this race is truly remarkable. Thank you, and I really hope to see all of you soon.
If you are looking for a great 50, 70, 100 or 161 km (100 miles) race, then you are on the right track !
The welcome and atmosphere are absolutely extraordinary.
Her we are immersed in the Middle Ages. On the morning of the race, the athletes are all in the wonderful medieval village of Rothenburg. We light torches and we move a few hundred meters. A knight in costume and on horseback gives us a speech of which I retain only "only the strongest will arrive at 161 km".
The course is almost flat, with some bumps to pass. 95 % asphalt. Of the 161 km, my GPS indicates 800 m. D+ and 950 m. D-
It is almost entirely on a bike path. So no problem of cohabitation with cars or trucks. We cross beautiful villages, along rivers, visit the countryside. We also have the privilege of visiting a castle, with its colorful gardens of flowers and trees with multiple species.
Refreshments are very well organized. There is ample number of volunteers. Everything is ready enough. Labels indicate what to drink and eat. Between km 100 and 161, the volunteers are just as numerous, even more since they are often accompanied by several people who all encourage you warmly !
At the arrival of 100 km and 100 miles, you are knighted by a knight, and a charming lady hands you a horn in which there is a secret drink. Do you want to know what's inside ????
So come and do this wonderful race !!!
I realized my PB on 100 miles and also passing 100 km (which was not planned)!
Si vous cherchez un parcours pour faire une super performance sur 50, 70, 100 ou 161 km, alors vous êtes sur la bonne course !
L'accueil et l'ambiance sont absolument extraordinaires.
Nous voici plongé dans le moyen-âge. Le matin de la course, les athlètes se retrouvent tous dans le merveilleux village médiéval de Rothenburg. On allume des torches et on se déplace de quelques centaines de mètres. Un chevalier, en costume et à cheval nous fait un discours dont je ne retiens que "seuls les plus forts arriveront aux 161 km".
Le parcours et presque plat, avec quelques bosses à passer. 95 % asphalte. Sur les 161 km, mon GPS indique 800 m. D+
Il est quasiment entièrement sur piste cyclable. Donc aucun problème de cohabitation avec les voitures ou camions. On traverse des villages magnifiques, longe des rivières, visite la campagne. On a aussi le privilège de visiter un château, par ses jardins colorés de fleurs et arbres aux essences multiples.
Les ravitaillements sont très bien organisés. Il y a le nombre amplement suffisant de bénévoles. Tout est prêt en suffisance. Des étiquettes indiquent ce qu'il y a à boire et à manger. Entre le km 100 et 161, les bénévoles sont tout aussi nombreux, voire plus encore puisqu'ils sont souvent accompagnés de plusieurs personnes qui tous t'encouragent chaleureusement !
A l'arrivée des 100 km et des 100 miles, tu es adoubé par un chevalier et une charmante demoiselle te tend une corne dans laquelle il y a un breuvage secret. Tu veux savoir ce qu'il y a dedans ????
Alors viens et fais cette course merveilleuse !!!
J'y ai réalisé ma PB sur les 100 miles et aussi en passant aux 100 km (ce qui n'était pas prévu)!
Had a great time running Taubertal 100-mile 2017. I must say it is one of the best organized 100-km/100-mile events in Europe, and it's easily seen how organizers and volunteers take their effort, enthusiasm, and hospitality to make it a fantastic experience for runners. The path is so well (probably too well) marked -- even for the 100-mile extension -- that it's very hard to get lost; volunteers at the checkpoints are so helpful and cheerful; there are so many aid stations and the course is flat and fast, ideal for making new PBs; and there are so many idyllic towns and villages, so much scenery to enjoy along the way. Even during the cold night, volunteer bikers accompany runners, making the last battle to the finish line easier... I want to say big THANK YOU to organizers, volunteers, and spectators that make such wonderful trip possible.
Fantastic event. Well done. One of my best ultra events.
