About a month from now we’ll be racing, laughing, dancing and having tons of fun! For clean drinking water!
Here the most recent news:
1. One route has changed!
Since one route had so far not captured anybody’s interest, we’ve reacted. After discussing the reasons with friends and participants, we’ve changed the route „Hauerei Maddox“. Several teams appear to prefer the Balkans over Italy, hence Maddox became a fourth route to tackle the Balkans.
And this is how it goes: Basel (CH) – Traunstein (D) – Zagreb (HR) – Novi Sad (SRB) – Skopje (MK) – Thessaloniki (GR) – Preveza (GR).
Also, it added two more countries to the list of where we’ll be passing through: Serbia and Macedonia.
Who has second thoughts about his or her choice of route now, can easily change routes in their team’s profile page: Switch route
2. The Fundraising-Toolkit!
The donation counter is starting to go steadily upwards. Over 1200 Euros are in the bucket already! We’ve received a few mails from hitchhikers that want to get started collecting donations but don’t know how to go about it. This is why we are now providing you with a fundraising toolkit with a few basic hints.

Let’s make the bucket run over!
3. further team registrations
More and more teams are registering. Almost everyday a new one adds themselves. 49 are registered now – awesomeness! So when the last liability waivers have been signed and hitch packages paid, the race will be full soon. Tell your friend who are interested in participating – hitchhikers with real interest need to hurry up!
4. The shirts have been printed!
The shirts are done – check them out on live people:
