DTSG (Deutsche Trampsport Gemeinschaft) is the name of the first German competitive autostop club. The club was founded on November 26, 2011 in Leipzig, Germany.

It's aim is to establish competitive autostop as a collaborative activity in Germany and Western Europe. Activities will include a broad range of topics, from organizing training workshops and lectures on first aid while travelling by autostop, night-hitchhiking, survival, navigation in deserted areas and other relevant topics, as well as excursions to specific (e.g. usually less travelled) destinations.

Competitive, collaborative competitions, asking the participants e.g. of relevant skills in orientation / navigation in the open country, form as well a major part of the club's repertoire.

Competitions

On March 9, 2012, the club organized its first competition throughout the Vogelsbergkreis in Northern Hesse, Germany. A second race was conducted June 15-17, 2012, through the Altmark region in Northern Germany.

  • The club will organize the first qualification round of the World Championships (TransGlobal) for (Western) Europeans from 18-28 August, 2012. Participants from all European countries are welcome to participate.
