The pre-Christmas release of 250 individual places and 80 spots for relay teams has become an annual event for the popular race, with a portion of the proceeds going to support charities in the Nuremberg region. Last year’s pre-Christmas release filled in 10 minutes.

Applications will be available on the website from 10am in Germany at www.challenge-roth.com.
