It has been done!

After months of preparations we’ve finally made it and can let the big dog called “Tramprennen” off the chain! Fire from all holes! Registration has started! In good Tramprennen tradition, we’ve pimped the routes last minute. Especially the routes passing through Italy! Check the routes, check the HitchPackage, check the supported projects of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli and Viva con Agua Switzerland – just check the whole thing!
We are simply celebrating ourselves for finally having finished this nutty shit! Now we’re looking forward to every hitchhiker, every registered team, every cent for Viva con Agua, every Tramprennen sticker on every gas station! We are looking forward to everybody, who will hitch with us to Preveza, who will hunt TeamSponsors and who passes on the word: Dude. Hitchhiking. No Shit. BOOOUM!

  • Start: 22nd of August in Hamburg, Basel and Berlin
  • Destination: around 3rd of September in Preveza, Greece
  • 5 Routen
  • for Viva con Agua and clean water!

Tramprennen 2011: Overview of all 5 routes!

After teasing you with the first two routes, we’ve decided to let the next three off the hook in one go.

The plan is to send you guys on the road on the 22nd of August from 3 different locations: Hamburg, Berlin and Basel – 5 different routes, all heading to Preveza, Greece. Every route will consist of up to 12 teams of 2 or 3 people! Hence, the plan is to hitchhike with at max 60 teams to Greece for clean drinking water!

You’ll get to know when and how to register here on the website in the upcoming weeks! We’re still working out the details on the project areas of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli and Viva con Agua Switzerland, for whom we’ll travel yet again and in the case of VcA Switzerland for the first time, getting the registration process to work smoothly plus a few more surprises to come! But we promise it won’t be long for the next phase to come: Register, participate, hunt for sponsors, support water projects and hitchhike, of course!!

So here’s an overview of the routes

Route Fugbaum Kneipenterroristen:

Stages: Basel (Switzerland) – Innsbruck (Austria) – Wörthersee (Austria) – Zadar (Croatia) – Mostar (Bosnia-Herzegovina) – Virpazar (Montenegro) – Preveza (Greece)

Weird routenames? Indeed, in good tradition! The routes of Tramprennen 2010 were an hommage to the names Dirk, Sönke und Knut, which enjoy special treatment at the Hamburgian Viva con Agua office. This time the tribute goes to a German TV documentary of the nineties – the unintended satire “Youth Wars”! :)

We working on an updated FAQ for Tramprennen, which should answer most of your questions on participation, registration, Viva con Agua, hitchhiking, the supported water projects, the hitch-package, safety, an so forth! If you’ve already want to inquire about something, shoot! :)

Your TR11-Crew!

First route of Tramprennen 2011!

On the road again! After completing our admittedly borderline-nutty hardcore trainingcamp, which sent the teams on a 60 hour long trip all over the roads of Europe we are ready for more! With nearly 75 freaks from all over Germany competing in last year’s race, we are exploring new paths: This year the Tramprennen will not only start in one city, but in three! Along with this comes another innovation: In August 2011 we will not only hitchhike for water projects of the German Viva con Agua de St.Pauli but also for Viva con Agua Switzerland! Trampennen is going international! We want you!

We hope that you folks out there are just as excited as we are about this year’s race. After many a debate the routes have been finalized and we can once again promise that this year’s routes will provide a lot of fun and adventure! As you already know, this year we will hitchhike to Preveza, in Greece. But so far, we haven’t published any of the stops inbetween yet. You have been waiting long enough, the hitchhiking season has just started again (for most of us it probably hadn’t even ended during winter…), the sun is shining more frequently and accordingly the time of waiting for infos about the Tramprennen 2011 is now officially over! Yaaaay!

From today onward we will announce the five different routes of the Tramprennen 2011! To keep the tension high, we will provide you with the routes step by step! We are sure, you will understand!

And the first route will start in…………..
the beautiful city of Basel at the boardertriangle of Germany, France and Switzerland!

Since we are also hitchhiking for Viva con Agua Switzerland this year it was only logical that at least one route will start in Switzerland. Hitch-Off for the route “Kneipenterroristen” will be in Basel with the support of the Swiss Viva con Agua Crew! Kneipenterroristen will race through the Austrian Alps, chill at Croatian beaches and dance to Balkan beats. But find out for yourself and check out the link for all the details and different stages! We hope, you like them!
