“I think you and the race you are hosting are great. Unfortunately, the number of adventure races in Germany has declined in recent years. It is all the more important that the Auenland race is maintained! Many thanks for your effort and organizing the great race!!!”

“The contour lines are an important landmark, but especially in your green forest areas they are difficult to read. Even more extreme at night. But that’s part of the adventure game…”
