REGISTRATION FOR NON-ELITE ATHLETES

Everyone has the possibility to get a bib or participate in all of the races through the website of the event. In other words: ALL GTNS Races are open to everyone. Please respect the registration rules for each event.

SIERRE ZINAL

Ten men and ten women who participate in the National Series will get a free bib for Sierre Zinal.

SIERRE ZINAL is part of the Golden Trail World Series. For the first time, Sierre Zinal is also part of the National Series GER/AUT/CH. The level of athletes is higher, but you will have your own category. There will be a separate ranking between the GTWS and the GTNS. This means all runners from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland will be considered in the GTNS Ranking, plus everyone who participated already in a GTNS race. // (Update 31.01)

Category

There is only one category per gender: Overall male and overall female.

PRIZES

The GTNS respects parity and requires that the races give the same prize money to men and women. The prize money is paid by the Golden Trail National Series. The format is planned in such a way that every athlete in the DACH region has the opportunity to compete in two races in his/her country and thus qualify for the finals of the Golden Trail National Series. This avoids long travel distances, reduces the ecological footprint and respects the sustainability aspect of the Golden Trail Series.
