* We informed around 10,000 runners in advance about the start of registration with the Early Bird offer. This included almost 2,000 who were on the waiting list for VCM 2024 and a good 8,000 interested people who registered specifically for information. The rush for starting places was immediately high when the system opened. This is why the Early Bird contingent was quickly used up. Thanks to everyone for the interest!
