Unfortunately, since mid-March we have had the sad certainty: we will have to cancel the Glocknerkönig in 2021 as well.
We still do not receive any information about the holding of events from the Austrian Federal Government.
All we know so far is conjecture: Limitation of participants, cancellation of the category "Ultra" (lack of space Edelweißspitze), new concept for start, finish and race office (without information which requirements have to be fulfilled), no massages, no Kaiserschmarrn, no staying on the Großglockner, ... The list can go on and on.
An event of this size needs a certain lead time. Mid-March was the absolute deadline for a decision. It was always clear that we wanted to offer you participants a brilliant event - in view of the Covid-19 situation also under absolute security precautions. The uncertainty - or rather the ignorance - has now slowed us down and forced us to take this step.
All registered participants received a newsletter from Datasport on 22 March. Of course, all starters have the possibility to have the participation fee returned to them. Of course you can also leave the money with us, which will guarantee you a fixed starting place in 2022. With option 2 you help us with the liquidity in this challenging time.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you at next year's jubilee:
Sunday, 5 June 2022!
