We pick upwhere the Alps leave off.
Trail running events in the Alps usually take place between 2000-3000metres, at an altitude where you can essentially run for as long you like without any danger of altitude sickness. OnMount Kilimanjaro,we’re playing in a completely different league.
Covering four climatic zones in a single week. The only chance to do this is here!
We use the Marangu route in the east of Kilimanjaro. This route is very easy to run except for a few sections. The absolute highlight of the route are the 4 climate zones you run through in 5 days.
You start in the tropical rain forest at 25 - 30 degrees, the forest line is at 3000 HM !! and come to a heathland. From 3500 HM you are in a lunar landscape like on another planet and in the summit area you can see arctic glaciers.

Preparation and training plans
Michael can provide personalized training plans for participants. His company this1 also offers products that provide targeted support for
building the immune system.
The immune system is the key to acclimatization.
We organised a scientific expedition for the clinical director of the University Hospital Marburg / Giessen Prof. Dr. med. Renz. He has emphasized the importance of the immune system in altitude sickness. On this foundation we worked out an individual training and nutrition plan to support our athletes.
Preparation and acclimatization
Kilimanjaro is a technical easy mountain but due to its altitude of 5895 Hm there is a big risk of altitude sickness. This can lead to life-threatening lung or brain edema. There is a mountain rescue now at Kilimanjaro, so careful preparation and acclimatization is very important.
We work together with the sports scientist Gernot Stephinger, who experienced Kilimanjaro with his MTB, and the high altitude preparation company of Markus Göbel.
We offer our customers:
- a sports science test
Acclimatization with the altitude tent
This sounds great! Please send me more infos.
