From Tatras to Danube race is a team competition, not meant for individuals. The race can be entered by teams with 6, 9 or 12 members represented by their captain. The captain is responsible for all members of their team. The track is comprised of 36 sections. Each section has a different length and difficulty. All sections span from 7 to 11 km. For 12-member teams, every member will run 3 sections. Some team members, part of smaller teams, will run 4 sections. Teams in the E) ULTRA category have 6 members, each of which will run 6 sections.

The organizer thoroughly details each section of the race – map of the section, picture of the handover area, elevation profile of the track, description, section´s difficulty, which part of the day the section is run. Each team captain picks up their package with all information. The current itinerary of the entire track and its individual sections is given to every team in advance so they are able to get well acquainted with them before the start.

The team captain is obligated to state the best time of their individual team members on a 10 km track (not older than 2 years). After adding up all the numbers, the average time of the entire team on 10 km must not be more than 60 minutes. This means that the team should be able to run the entire race in less than 36 hours according to their times. In the category D) ELITE, the 10 km time must be less than 40 minutes.

On the basis of the 10 km times given and the order of the runners within the team, the organizer calculates the approximate time for finishing the race, factoring in the different lengths of sections, elevation of the track and determines the starting time of the team.

Teams start from 8 am to 15pm.

The estimated end-time for the race is the 19th August from 1 pm to 8 pm.

The resulting time of the race changes continuously, without stopping, from the moment the first team member starts till the last team member crosses the finish line. The organizer secures the official timing. Interim results at the individual sections are not guaranteed by the organizer, so they are unofficial times. Team captains have at their disposal a team card, into which the interim times are written.
