Tramprennen is an annual hitchhiking race organized by Club of Roam-Autostop! e.V. since 2008, in which over 100 go-getters hit the road using their thumbs. The competition takes you through Europe at the end of summer (Mid/End August), and during the two weeks scheduled for the race there’s plenty of room for spontaneity and discovering different cultures, both within the race and in the ever changing settings of the race.
Competing with old and new friends on who can beat who, and what that person then has to do, are funkylicious activities that everybody can enjoy, but the race is so much more than just a fun and friendly competition. It’s not just about passing through the places as fast as possible, but also taking the time to meet different people with an open mind and discover a new culture together. It’s an opportunity to promote such funktastic values as: friendship, transcultural exchange, social engagement and obviously the sweet, sweet art of hitchhiking.
Likewise, with fundraising and creation of awareness taking place both before and during the race: Tramprennen is also a big contributor to the projects of Sea-Watch e.V.
