Did you have a long winter too? Is your sports gear buried at the bottom of the cupboard? Has your gym membership expired or is it too inconvenient for you to book your training timeslot? We know the problem - but we have the solution! Open the curtains, look out the window and what can you see? That's right, summer is waiting outside! This is the perfect moment to move your workout outside, discover blossoming nature and get your tired legs back into shape.

We've come up with an incentive to make it even easier for you. With our #rausundlos Outdoor Initiative, we've got a little challenge: hike at least 20 kilometres (12 mi) in a month. Once you’ve got a taste for it, simply keep going! After all, a hike in nature is the perfect combination: fresh air, quiet paths without hustle and bustle, and on foot you’re at the right speed to get to know new places in a relaxed way.

To help you with the challenge, we've picked out the perfect hiking routes to get you started. All Tours in this Collection are 10 kilometres (6 mi) long. Just pick your two favourite hikes and you’ll tick off the challenge in no time!

So, do you accept our challenge? Simply download the TK app, start TK-Fit (the fitness programme in the TK app) and take part in the challenge. If you complete it, you can earn up to 1,000 points for the TK bonus programme. You can either redeem those points for future treatments that you normally have to pay for or treat yourself to our rewards.

Just one more thing: if you go on a Tour with komoot, follow us, tag us as a participant after your hike and write #rausundlos in the title – we’d love to see who takes part in the challenge here. If you prefer to share your adventures on Instagram or Facebook, you can tag us by using #rausundlos. We'll meet you in the great outdoors!

    On the Frohn-Wald-Weg you can just step out and escape the stress of everyday life. There is not much distraction on the way, so that you can switch off completely and let the forest around you work on you. Forest bathing is on the program on the ten-kilometer tour - you can take a break with a picnic that you have packed yourself in the rustic and incredibly beautiful Frohnwaldhütte.
