The fourth runner enters the main hall through the East Gate. After 60 m in the hall he runs over the finish line. We will make this entrance into the hall very coherent; In the hall are the ranks opened, in addition, grandstands are built up. There is room for about 7,000 spectators (5,000 seats, 2,000 standing). Please note that it is not allowed to enter the fourth floor. Only the last runner of the relay team is entitled by his starting number to stay on the last section of the track. If the fourth runner has overrun the target line (contact mats), the run time of your relay is registered. The target area and the hall should be left quickly, so that no congestion occurs. Go straight ahead into the ‘Forum’ building, which connects directly to the main hall.

The goal is open until 16:15. Correspondingly, the course is to be completed in 6 hours (net). This corresponds to an average speed of 8:30 minutes per kilometer. Participants who arrive later are no longer covered by the time taken.
