Beloved participants of the most awesome race in 2016,
with this email we send you the second newsletter of this year’s
Tramprennen, regarding the following topics:
1.Allocation of the routes / starting points
2.Pimp Your Profile
3.Support of our friends from EDDING
Before starting a small note for all starters from Halle: We mixed up
Romans e-mail address in Newsletter #1! The correct one is
gro.nennerpmartnull@namor. Sorry for that!
For the first time we planned a Tramprennen with the maximum of eight
routes to make sure that everyone can join and no one is excluded.
With a view to the current participants and teams in registration
process we can limit it to six different routes. Due to a problem of
finding enough sleeping places for up to 50 people in Innsbruck we
have to modify our plan from the last Newsletter a bit and limit
Innsbruck to one route.
So the actual plan in a nutshell:
Two routes starting from Halle (both already fully occupied), one or
two from the beautiful city of Freising (here are some free places
left!), two routes from no less beautiful Leutkirch (also places
left!) and one from Innsbruck (like Halle fully occupied).
So if you didn’t choose your route yet: You have the choice between
Leutkirch and Freising. Honestly: it would be a choice for one of the
four most beautiful routes of this year! ;-)
We gather next weekend to pack the Hitchpackages, so please be sure to
choose your starting location latest till thursday evening (August
Donations started and the counter rattles like a good old casino slot.
Great! But of course there is room for more! Ask your relatives,
buddies, work colleagues,… and/or start funny actions – it’s up
By the way: we offer the possibility to update a video to your
teamprofile. How cool is that?! Just upload your video on youtube or
some alternative platform, search and copy the link for sharing/embed
and put the code into your team profile.
Besides that: The famous Online-Liveticker is opened! Means: You can
already test the ticker and share your way till the race with all of
us! Check https://tramprennen.org/send-
For the eighth time in a row Edding supports us and all teams with the
famous Edding-markers. We are super happy about that!
Especially the people who already joined the race the last years have
a lot of used and almost empty Edding-markers at home. Due to that we
asked the company to send us some refill ink – all for the purpose
of sustainability. So – everyone who wants to refill their
Edding-markers: send an e-mail till thursday noon with the amount and
colors of the markers to gro.nennerpmartnull@ofni. We will pack the refill
bottles in your hitchpackage.
All your thumbs for the nature! :)
„Do good and speak about it“ – an old and often annoying phrase.
But nevertheless very important for our project:
First to gather the ultimative maximum of donations. Besides that for
finally positive coverage on the most beautiful way of travelling:
Most of the press right now is negative, hitchhiking is considered
dangerous and you cannot change a driver’s opinion if he is not
stopping to pick you up. Our race is a wonderful possibility to change
that. And the best multipliers are YOU! Get in touch with your local
newspaper or with friends working in media and tell them about your
upcoming adventure! Especially the local newspapers are always looking
for new topics and let’s be honest: did you ever read something about
hitchhiking in there?
If you need support in any way feel free to contact us via
gro.nennerpmartnull@aidem. An overview and infos for journalists can be
found on https://tramprennen.org/media-
And that’s it! For now… ;-) The exact locations for the premeetings
are coming next week. They will start on Friday, August 19th around
6pm. Be there! It is definitely cool if at least one of your teammates
can make it – but from the experience of the last years it is
absolutely worth it!
So long, we will start packing your and our Hitchpackages then ;-)
All the best and happy hippiekacke!
