Here we are ... the 1st International German Skimarathon Championship will be fully integrated in the 2019 Koenig-Ludwig-Lauf (KLL) competitions. This new championship will be organized by the German Ski Association (DSV) in cooperation with the Koenig-Ludwig-Lauf Club to establish national skimarathon champions in cross-country skiing on the yet not run distance of 50 kilometers in classic style. The championship will become an integral part of the traditional Koenig-Ludwig race program on Sunday, 3 Feb 2019.
With this new national championship the DSV aims at the usually huge number of German participants at open-public fun runs across the country. Therefore, the championship is open for ambitious hobby runners, semi-professionals and professionals, no matter whether organized in clubs or train (yet) individually.
