  • "Genusssportler": Leisure orientated, slower pace, lower performance
  • "Breitensportler": Regular attendance of training sessions or races in the selected sport for Flüela Challenge
  • "Leistungssportler": Ambitious age groupers or elite athletes

This indication will be used for choosing the appropriate starting times. Slower athletes will be given more time to complete the challenge. Thank you!
