As some of you may have heard, today the city of Philadelphia announced, that no permits for large gatherings will be issued for the next 6 months.
This effectively closes the door for us to have any in person races in Philadelphia this fall. We have been working on the Dirty German and the Philadelphia Trail Marathon
for over a year and because the pandemic started so closely to the planned original dates, a lot of supplies have been ordered and paid for already.
This puts us in a very bad spot. Needless to say, we are really disappointed, but we respect the decision of the city and hope this will help to keep the
number of new infections low.
So moving forward the Philadelphia Trail Marathon and the Dirty German Endurance Fest will go virtual. We will put together an awesome package for you.
You will receive:
- a finisher medal, which turned out great.
- a very high quality performance top.
- commemorative bib
- $ 20 credit for any of our races in 2021 or 2022 (exclusive for runners who registered before July 21st at full price)
If you are not registered yet, but would like to support UES, you can now register for the virtual version of the race for $39 for any distance.

I understand this is not the perfect solution, but we are hoping this is a compromise that is acceptable to you. By participating in the virtual race you are helping us to offset
the cost we had preparing for the race and also allows us to come back stronger in the near future , when in person races are safe again.
Please allow a few weeks for us to setup the virtual race on ultrasignup. You should receive another email in 2-3 weeks with instructions on how to get the miles in, report your result and receive the swag package , which we will start shipping out in August.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I really appreciate your support.
In the meantime, stay healthy, keep running and be kind to each other.
Guten Tag and welcome to
www.uberendurancesports.com, a joint venture of a runner and a pastry
chef. We all might not run for the same reasons, but one you
hear quite often: "I run , so I can eat a little more". Since my wife
is a pastry chef and everyone in my extended family has a food
background (our family operated a german restaurant for 42 years), I'll
have to run a lot more these days.
I often look forward to the post
race party at long distance races, because I feel afterwards I really
deserve some extra calories. Often I find myself spending
money at a restaurant, because the post race food consisted of
half a banana and maybe a bagel.
Our mission is to organize
affordable fun races with a german twist. We want the runners
to stick around for a while and have a good time, while enjoying some
good german food.
Every one of our races will
support a different charity. We have been involved in numerous cancer
charity events in the past as well as SOS (Share our strength), Chefs
fighting childhood hunger in the USA. We would like to use our races to
raise awareness and funds to support charities like these.
