    Hi unicyclist

    Information about the 12 th International Unicycle Marathon Competition at the 27 th of April 2014 in Duesseldorf/Germany
    METRO Group Marathon DuesseldorfRMSV Frisch auf Duesseldorf e. V.400,000METRO Group Marathon Duesseldorfminimum 16 years (relevant = year of birth = 1998) which are able to ride the 42.195 km Marathon distance on a unicycle within maximum 3.30 hours have to register twice, i. e. first under

    www.rmsv-duesseldorf.deStandard CompetitionUnlimited Competitionare not allowedStandardUnlimited< 40 years, > 40 years, > 50 years) and only one for women (relevant year of birth only).

    The three fist participant of each of the eight different competition groups will be honoured and will receive a prize. Moreover you will receive a special prize if undercutting one of the track records. The best participants with a german passport will receive a national jersey and will get the title of a german unicycling champion.

    The times are measured with the Chronotrack system by using one-time transponders. The individual net times (from crossing the starting line up to crossing the finish line) are the base for all rankings except the track records. For all track records the gross time (from starting signal to crossing the finish line) are valid. Therefore all candidates for undercutting one of the track records should start from the front line. The track records (currently equivalent to World Records!) are:

    - women Standard: 1:58:53 by Christina Eigner in 203,
    - women Unlimited: 1:41:38 by Nadine Wegner in 2013,
    - men Standard: 1:43:16 by Christoph Hartmann in 2009,
    - men Unlimited: 1:22:18 by Christoph Hartmann in 2012

    It is mandatory to wear a helmet and gloves, recommended are protectors for knees and elbows too. Each unicyclist participates at his own risk. The organizer will nevertheless negotiate an insurance contract covering all unicyclists. If you have left your unicycle you have to climb on again within 25 meters.

    Registration fee varies between 54 and 95 EUR depending on the time of registration. Registration has to be made before the 13 th of April 2014. You have to pick up your starting number the day before, just in exceptional cases in the early morning before starting.

    As this event is primarily an event for runners and we are on the same track with them the unicyclist who need more than 2:20 hoursNo one of the top runners should have any disadvantage due to the participation of the unicyclists. As in last two years the unicyclists have a separate finish line (close to the runners one).
    All unicyclists have to follow the directions of any of the officials. Furthermore they have to give priority to all official cars.

    The track is the same for runners and unicyclist with one exception: After about 3 km all handbikers and unicyclists will continue to go straight ahead, make an U-turn and will ride back the same road to join the runner`s track again after about 5 km.

    All participants agree that their personal data and results are transferred to METRO Group Marathon and the local press.

    Start will be at about 8:45ceremony will be held at about
