Note

The running fee varies according to the time of registration as follows:

  • Early Bird Registration: March 1, 2024 to March 31, 2024 -> 15 €
  • Run @ TUM registration: April 01, 2024 to April 14, 2024  -> 20 €
  • Late Bird registration: April 15, 2024 to April 21, 2024       -> 25 €
  • We cannot offer more than 2.500 places in total (5.5 km + 11 km). The registration will be closed as soon as the 2.500 places have been taken.
  • Until 05.05.2024 you have the possibility to state a stand-by by writing an email. This is only possible if a women is replacing a women, a diverse runner is replacing a diverse runner or a men is replacing a men and if there is no change to the pre-registered distance.

It is unfortunately not possible to get a refund of the participation fee.

All of those who want to take part in the Chair Challenge only have to mark the corresponding field when registering (Registration for the Chair Challenge) and specify the name of the chair.

Please pay attention to the correct and identic spelling of the chair (e.g. Lehrstuhl für elektrische Energiespeichertechnik) for each team member - otherwise we may not be able to assign them.

It makes no difference whether you are the head of the chair, work for the chair, or are writing your thesis there. The main thing is that you agree as a chair and register under the identic chair name; this simplifies the verification process for the organiser.

It is important that the chair team is composed of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 9 runners. If larger teams (more than 9 runners) register, we will automatically split them up before the race according to the time of their registration (chair name 1, chair name 2, etc.). The times of the five fastest runners within a (sub)chair will be added together to determine the winning time for the fastest chair (it may therefore be important which team you are assigned to). Of course, all runners of the winning chair will be invited to the award ceremony.

For larger teams, this means:

before you sign up, consider which runners have the best chance of winning a top spot and register accordingly.

To participate, you only need to mark the corresponding field when registering (Participation in the Chair Chellenge) and register the name of the chair. Make sure that everyone in your team spells the chair name exactly the same, otherwise we may not be able to assign you to your teams.

Additional to the Chair Challenge, there will also be a Male and a Female Professor Challenge which was established in 2017.

To participate, you only need to select the right type of participant at the beginning of the registration (either male or female professor) and then mark the corresponding field (Participation in the Male or Female Professor Challenge).

All professors can take part in the Professor Challenge as well as in the Chair Challenge. Please do not forget to state your title when registering, so that we can assign you clearly.

All teams with at least 5 participants consisting of

  • students of TUM in general (from all field of studies)
  • student organisations/initiatives/council of TUM (IKOM, WARR, TUfast, Junge Akademie etc.) and/or
  • employees from the administration and facilities (library, management, International Center, hotline, faculty administration etc.)

It is important that the team is composed of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 9 runners. If larger teams (more than 9 runners) register, we will automatically split them up before the race according to the time of their registration (team name 1, team name 2, etc.). The times of the five fastest runners within a (sub)team will be added together to determine the winning time for the fastest teams (it may therefore be important which team you are assigned to). Of course, all runners of the winning team will be invited to the award ceremony.

For larger teams, this means:

To participate, you only need to mark the corresponding field when registering (Participation in the TUMlinge-Challenge) and register the name of the team. Make sure that everyone in your team spells the team name exactly the same, otherwise we may not be able to assign you to your teams.

All other TUM students or alumni can form a team of at least five participants (e.g. student council teams, residence teams or just a diverse team).

It is important that the team is composed of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 9 runners. If larger teams (more than 9 runners) register, we will automatically split them up before the race according to the time of their registration (team name 1, team name 2, etc.).

Of course it is not mandatory to run as a team or for a chair.

Each and every single person has the opportunity to compete as a single runner. Simply mark the Individual Run field in the application when asked “what are you signing up for?”
