The predecessor of todays HOBOpur already takes place in winter on the 30th of december 1995.

The still valid starting time is a result of that first time. In order to be done with the 12 hours early enought to participate in the year end´s "Fackellauf" (going down the slopes by ski at night with torches) the paricipants have no other chance except to start at 7 am. 

The most climbs achieve Wolfgang and Manfred, two members of the Bergwacht Neukirchen b. Hl. Blut (local mountain patrol and rescue service), one 11 times and the other 7 times. But due to his job the latter cannot start until late morning.

The foundation is set and as often with valuable things: it takes some time until on 23rd of January, 2010, Ludwig Pongratz and Wolfgang Kuchler invite to the first official HOBOpur up Hohenbogen.


Bergwacht, Hohenbogenbahn, Sport Pfeiffer and many volunteers and sponsors enabeled a smooth event.

The Feedback of the participants and volunteers is positive and does not leave the organisers another chance: HOBOpur will take place again..
