If you're in the process of planning out your spring shred events calendar, here's one in Germany to put high up on the priority list.

On the 8th of April Grasgehren and adidas Snowboarding are set to hold the highlight event 'The Run' -a mix of a traditional Banked Slalom and park features. Each rider starts individually and the time of each run is measured. The fastest rider in the Open-devision will be invited to the legendary Banked Slalom in Riksgränsen, with flights, hotels and tickets from the 11th-14th of May. For kids under 16 years and the ladies there is a separate rating where you can win goodies from adidas Snowboarding.

Each competitor will get a gift of an original adidas Jersey shirt with their choice of name on the back, but the number of participants in the race is limited to 100, so it's best to register immediately to secure your starting position. To register go to the Facebook event, hit 'take part' and comment with your name of choice.
