About the event

This 6-hour race is a friendly and entertaining event for solorunners and teams alike. The race is held at the Peace-Mile in Munich-Moosach. It is situated in the beautifully park around the Post-Sport-Club in Munich and gives the races its name. Here's how the event works ...

Solo runners: 6-hour races are perfect if you want to adventure into the ultra running scene. It's a good way to go past a Marathon for the first time. If you are a specialist or old-timer in hour races you will enjoy it just as much as this race has a family-like friendly atmosphere and lots of nature, too.

Team Relay: There are 4 members in a team. A team can be all male, all female or mixed (at least 1 male and 1 female per mixed team). The members can change as often as they want to. With a smart strategy you can be right up front.

Race information

In 1986 the Peace-Mile was inaugurated by the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in cooperation with the city of Munich. It is situated in the beautiful park around the Post Sport Club in Munich-Moosach. The Peace-Mile wants to be a symbol and inspiration for all to strive for peace and harmony. A peace tree was planted at the location of the plaque in 1988.

Comments

"[...] I would like to give you a big compliment and a big thank you, the event on Saturday was just great! For me it was the first 6 hour run / ultra and even though I did not quite make the 50km, This race has made me want more, I already knew the course, but all the environment were really great .. I have never had such great food during a marathon and the helpers were even better. They were always in a good spirits.
I would also like to emphasize the lap counters, who received me loudly at each of my 30 rounds and thus counteracted a lap dissiness :) "

-- Andreas Stettner (2018)

"I didn’t have a chance to catch someone after the race today to talk to, so I wanted to send you a quick message via email. I’ve lived in Germany for more than two years as a student and I’ve taken part in several races around Munich and also other parts of Europe. I wanted to say that today was the best experience I’ve ever had at a race, and I wish I would be here next year to do it again. Today when I was leaving I felt the urge to help more with something because I definitely took more away than what I gave. Thank you so much for an open and inspiring event. My boyfriend and dog were also very happy about the day. Many thanks to the enthusiastic counters- they were definitely working equally as hard as the runners. Good luck with future events and please keep the positivity and enthusiasm at those as well!"
