Finally in the registration period you have to send the registration fee (13 EUR / team) to the given bank account, the sending message should be your team's name. This method is your registration, we are waiting for you at the start line!
QUESTION: I am a lone wolf, I do not have any hitchhiker buddy, can I participate?
ANSWER: You cannot enter alone but do not give up! If other lonely hitchhikers would enter the race we will keep in touch and try to make couples. So instead of registration you should write to firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Give us your details (as listed in the registration form) and as soon as we get at a lonely racer we are going to write you about the possibilities.
QUESTION: Why is there a registration fee? We hitchhike for free!
ANSWER: Organizing the race and developing the website cost a lot of money and energy. We have printing and commercial costs as well, and we have to care about the rewards for the winners.
