The time measurement is being executed by Pentek Timing. If you don’t have your own Champion Chip you can rent one at the startnumber station. The chip costs € 3,-. If you want to know how fast you were running you’ll need a chip, but this is not compulsory.

You can leave you jacket or one sportbag at the Rondeau in the cloak room tent.

At the event day there will be the possibility to registrate as well, if friends of you’ll decide to join the Ghost Run spontaneously.

A costume is mandatory! Please start the Ghost Run only if your are wearing a costume. This of course shouldn’t restrain you.
If you are starting without a costume there will be a “fine” to donate 10€ more and you’ll get a spooky look by our makeup station.

We are excited to see you!

& the whole Ghost Run Team

Why join the Ghost Run?

Parents and their children who suffer from Pulmonary Hypertension are escaping the grim reaper – such as event host Gerry Fischer.

For 3 years he and his wife Benita tried to find an explanation for the bad condition of their daughter Marleen until they received the diagnosis pulmonary hypertension, which also ment an expectation of life of only 5 years.

Gerald Fischer found help in New York where a research and care center of the Columbia University under the guidance of Dr. Barst was located.

Answering the question on the possibilities of cure Dr. Barst replied “Give me 10 million Dollars and I will find a cure in 3 years!“, as at there were too little patients for fundamental research.

As it was a question of money this was the initial point for Gerald Fischer to start his initiative. Children with pulmonary hypertension are often lonely and isolated from the others, as they can’t cavort, swim, ride their bikes or experience all the adventures of the Viennese Prater.
