hermann achmueller

The sympathetic South Tyrolean Hermann Achmüller is no stranger to the running scene. Among other races, he won the Jungfraumarathon, the South Tyrol-Marathon, the Munich-Marathon and the Berlin-Marathon. Especially in the 2000s he was able to win several victories over the classic 42.2 km distance.

In recent years, he has also proven that he also enjoys ultra distances. In 2015, for example, he was able to secure the vice-world champion title in the 100km team-race in Winschoten and even celebrate his victory in the "cento km seregno" in 2016.

Hermann Achmüller has completed a total of 94 marathons, 6 100km runs and 5 ultramarathons in his career. We are extremely pleased that his way leads him to Biel in 2018 and we can welcome him at the start of the 60th Biel 100km!

Wir trauern um Franz Reist

Am Montag, dem 13. Februar ist der Gründer und Förderer des «Bieler Hunderters» Franz Reist im 87. Lebensjahr an einem Herzversagen gestorben. Franz hat 1959 als Pionier den 100-km-Lauf von Biel gegründet und war während 40 Jahren Präsident des Grossanlasses. Selber hat er die 100 km-Strecke mehr als 30-mal erfolgreich absolviert.

Wir bedauern den grossen Verlust. Noch so gerne hätten wir Franz gegönnt, dass er das 60-Jahr-Jubiläum seines Lebenswerks mitfeiern könnte.

Der Trauerfamilie sprechen wir unser herzliches Beileid aus und versichern, das Erbe von Franz in seinem Sinne weiter zu führen.

Biel, Februar 2017 OK Bieler Lauftage

Congratulations to the winners of our christmas contest on our facebook site. They are already informed and registered.

Winner  experience run: Oliver Steffen

Winner 21.1 km: Leopoldo López

Winner 56 km: Sara Hübscher

Winner 100 km: Alexander Koerfer

Winner running jacket: Alfred Neugebauer

Kindly note that due to increasing costs, the entry fee for 2017 has been raised by 7% on average. The exact fees can be found under the respective category description.

Cause of the increase is partly due to the simple increase of costs for the entire 3 day event. In comparison to previous years, we now have higher costs for the use of localities, security, and time measurement instruments.

At the same time, participants have been and will continue to profit from a wide range of comprehensive services during the Biel Running Days Event. For example:

The catering concept has steadily increased, in 2017 participants can count on 15 refueling stations along the 100km route. Furthermore, the last refueling station, at the finish line, has been completely re-vamped ensuring that the participants are able to replace the lost calories immediately, therefore regeneration may start immediately resulting in a reduced recovery time.

As well, the transport system before, during and after the race has been completely revised. The participants can now enjoy free train travel to and from Biel from all Swiss Train stations upon presentation of confirmation of paid entry fee. Last, but not least, during the event there will be an extra train running from Aarberg to Biel, ensuring that all participants of the half-marathon can return promptly and safely to the starting line in Biel.

Es war ein tolles Läuferfest mit zahlreichen Höhepunkten. Wir haben auch Verbesserungspotential ausgemacht. Die Rücktransporte ab Kirchberg müssen verbessert werden. Wir entschuldigen uns bei allen Läufern für die Wartezeit.

Herzlichen Dank allen Teilnehmenden und gute Erholung. Wir freuen uns auf Eure Teilnahme vom 8. – 10. Juni 2017.

Sportliche Grüsse, OK Bieler Lauftage

DOWNLOAD Catering Concept (PDF)

Run4Refugees is a team of two running fanatics, Holly and Tom, who have dedicated themselves to help underprivileged children and youths through sport.

Run4Refugees is a charity project that will begin on January 1, 2016 and end at the finish line of the 100km Ultramarathon in Biel on the 11th of June 2016.

Sponsors will be asked to donate per kilometer run during the project, and 100% of donations will go directly to charity organizations in Switzerland (www.savethechildren.ch) and Germany (www.thomas-wiser-haus.de). Fixed donations are also willingly accepted!

The railway station at Biel/Bienne is the base for bike rental: You can place your reservation under the phone number +41 900 300 300. Do not forget to mention that the rental is for the Biel running days!

The bicycles can be used during the race time of the 100 km run from friday through saturday. The charge will be for one day only.

There are several kinds of bikes: mountainbikes and e-bikes. More info here:

www.rentabike.ch

The Biel running days are famous not only for the experience of running at night - but also for their vast provisioning along the track. Of course, in 2016 we continue this tradition:

In the printed version of the program as well as on the official track map site, the profile of the ultra marathon 56 km had an error: There is in fact no loop in Biel, but the profile is the same as the one for the 100 km track. Please refer to the corrected version here.
 

The Biel running days 2016 offer the opportunity to run a real ulra marathon over 56 kilometers. As the number of participants of the marathon distance showed a decline over the past years, the organizing commitee decided to offer a new distance. The track follows the original 100 km with start in Biel and finish in Kirchberg.

The luggage will be collected friday from 5 p.m. in Biel and transported to Kirchberg. For those who want to park their car in Kirchberg, there's a shuttle bus at 8 p.m. back to the start in Biel. For all others, there is of course a shuttle bus from Kirchberg back to Biel. All is there for your ultimate ultra experience!

 

For the half marathon and experience runners, there is an attractive offer: You can park your car close to the finishing line in Aarberg. A special train brings you straight back to the start in Biel - for free! There's no need to reserve in advance. Everything is there for your night running experience!

Train schedule:

Experience run: departure in Aarberg 7:40 p.m.; arrival in Biel 8 p.m.

Half marahton: departure in Aarberg 8:40 p.m.; arrival in Biel 9 p.m.

 

The relay race is exactly tailor made for all searching the unique "100 km feeling" but who do not want to challenge the full track. The kilometer division is as follows: 16,9 km / 21,1 km / 18,1 km / 20,6 km / 23,3 km. That's easy to handle, ain't it? So give it a try and register for the relay race ...

 

57 Jahre Bieler Lauftage sind vom DUV (Deutsche Ultramarathon-Vereinigung e.V.) elektronisch aufbereitet und in der DUV Datenbank erfasst worden.

Diese Arbeit haben Chirstoph Wenzel, Jürgen Schoch und Andreas Knop auf sich genommen. Besten Dank an sie für die immens aufwändige Arbeit und das zur Verfügungstellen der Daten!

Im nächsten Jahr wird ein neues Angebot mit einem Ultra-Marathon über 56 km auf der Originalstrecke von Biel nach Kirchberg angeboten.

Erstmals befindet sich das Ziel in Kirchberg. Das Angebot richtet sich besonders an Marathonläufer, zukünftige 100 km-Läufer und Ultra-Marathonläufer, welche sich an die 100km herantasten wollen. Gestartet wird in Biel gleichzeitig mit den 100-km-Läufern. Kirchberg als Zielort ist bestens geeignet, bietet eine ausgezeichnete Infrastruktur mit Garderoben, Duschen, Verpflegung, Massage etc. Ausserdem gibt es auch genügend Parkplätze und die Gratis – Shuttle – Busse bringen die Läufer nach dem Zieleinlauf wieder nach Biel zurück. Der Zieleinlauf in Kirchberg ist wesentlich attraktiver als in Oberramsern. Das Marathonziel wird aufgehoben.

Die Anmeldung wie auch die Klassierung erfolgen für 100km-Lauf und Ultramarathon separat. 100km-Läufer, die in Kirchberg aussteigen, werden in der Rangliste "TS 2" geführt.
