Fair play is a top priority at the Karwendelmarsch. Anyone who behaves in an unsporting manner (taking short cuts, disregarding official instructions, leaving the marked route) will be disqualified without exception (Race Management).

Compulsory equipment:

The route is in alpine terrain and demands suitable equipment. Due to the different types of competitions, it was decided not to prescribe compulsory equipment for the athletes and participants. However, it is recommended to bring enough water, a change of clothes, bandages, rain protection, sun protection and headgear. The event weather report for the Karwendelmarsch also serves as an optimal source of information for the correct packing of the Karwendelmarsch rucksack. You should also be prepared for short-term changes in the weather and have the necessary equipment with you.

Emergency App by Tyrolean mountain rescue

In 2012, the Leitstelle Tirol and the Tyrolean mountain rescue have developed a rescue app specifically for emergencies in the Alpine regions of  Tyrol. The app can only be used in Tyrol and is available free of charge. In an acute situation, the user can transmit his or her own location (using GPS coordinates) to the Leitstelle Tirol with the touch of a button, while a telephone connection between them is simultaneously established. As a consequence of this, the Leitstelle Tirol alerts and dispatches the necessary emergency personnel.
