Since accommodation is a central issue for all competitors of a 5 day event, I have spent considerable time on this issue. I met with the directors of both the Bodenmais and Viechtach tourism office and both have suggested various ways how to find the right accommodation as well as what help is available. Both cannot recommend global booking portals such as booking.com since many local providers are not listed on these portals. All links and addresses are on the bottom of this page!
Accommodation brochure: Bodenmais has a detailed brochure which lists all accommodation providers. You can download this as a PDF or order a printed copy.
Telephone calls and Live Chat: Helping to connect guest with accommodation providers is one of the central responsibilities of the local tourism offices. They are looking forward to being contacted directly by the visitors, best by telephone. Bodenmais alone has 3 staff solely manning phones to help. There is also a live chat which is covered by the same staff.
Booking portals: Both communities maintain their own booking portals which I can highly recommend. All accommodation providers use this portal.
Individual accommodation list: On request, the tourism office Bodenmais can issue a personalized list of accommodation providers that fits your individual needs. You tell them exactly what you need, such as number of people, dates, size and type of accommodation and the office will send you a list with providers that fit your requirements and have vacancies. This can be requested by phone or e-mail under veranstalter(at)bodenmais.de
Lastly, I want to say that there is definitely enough accommodation option in the wider Bodenmais and Viechtach area for every runner, nobody will have to sleep in the ditch. It might involve a little bit of effort to find exactly the right accommodation for your needs, but it will be well worth it!

Important: When you use official accommodation in either Bodenmais or Viechtach (and many other communities), you will automatically get a so called GUTI ticket which gives you many local discounts but most importantly gives you free local public transport. The bus to Bretterschachten (Day 1, 4 and 5) for example is covered by the GUTI ticket.
You can find information on the GUTI ticket here:
