Incorporating a reunion of Trans Europa Footrace athletes

Aare-Island CH-5200 Brugg



The first 12/24hour races were held at Aare-Island CH-5200 Brugg in 2008, with a 6hour added in 2011. They also have incorporated a charity event where runners can be sponsored to complete laps and raise funds for pro infirmisSwiss Ultra Running have honoured the race by having the Swiss 12hour and Swiss 24hour Championships (held on alternative years) incorporated into the event.
So, there is 12years experience staging successful events at one of the best road circuits in the world.
So, for one year only, it has been decided at add a 48hour race to the events, as very few 48hour road races are staged, and as there appears to be a demand for such an event, has spurred on Fredi Büchler to add this to the Brugg programme.

It is also planned to have a reunion of all the athletes and carers of the TRANS EUROPE FOOTRACE (see over).

A good quality macadam road, flat and in a sheltered safe, traffic-free location, with facilities close to the circuit.





Ingo Schulze has been an ultra-long-distance runner since 1978 and has covered many kilometres "per pedes" during this time. Since 1996, he has also organized town and popular races. In 1998, he organized the "DL98". In 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004, the "Spreelauf" followed with international participation. What else should come after that? Ingo had been dreaming of the transcontinental race in America for many years. But that dream of running him once came a long way, so he organized a transcontinental race himself in 2003. Unique in Europe: the "Trans Europe-FootRace!" 44 runners from all over the world were able to fulfil the dream, which was now unattainable for Ingo. After recovering from these hardships, he decided to run more German races. These took place in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010. 2009 then the 2nd edition of the TE-FR with 68 participants. The TE-FR 2012 was be the last run of its kind.
He proposes to have a reunion for all the athletes and carers of the TRANS EUROPE FOOTRACES, and hope they will do a few sponsored laps to raise much needed funds for the charity.

Dear participants, carers and friends of TE-FR 2003, 2009 and / or 2012.

Anyone who has participated in one or more TE-FR will remember many things.
There were not only beautiful, but also painful memories.
These runs were full of pain, fatigue, fatigue, thirst, hunger, joy and disappointment.
Well, after years you might look back on these adventure runs with sadness and pride.
I've written a book about these runs. It's almost diaries. While reading, one or the other tear runs down the face.?!

It would be a shame if these runs were forgotten. I would like to see you again and surely you would be glad to meet your old "fellow sufferers" again.I could invite you to a restaurant or to my house or ... But what is closer to a runner than a running event?
No, do not worry, I will not torture you again. My time as an organizer and also as a runner is over !!!
From the 16th to the 18th of October 2020 a 6, 12, 24 and 24hour race takes place in 
Brugg (Switzerland).

Someone who wants to come, but does not want to run. We also have something for him:
Do it like me: I walk a lap or two. Later again one, two or even three? Drink a beer or two and run again. I will participate in the sponsored run.

For each round you or your sponsor pays a self-chosen amount, it will benefit the charity Pro Infirmis.
