The Citylauf Dresden is a road running event staged annually in March in the city of Dresden, capital of the state of Sachsen (Saxony) in Germany.

The main race of the day is the 10k race which attracts a top-class field of elite athletes and a crowd of well over 1,000 ambitious runners.

In addition to the 10k race, the event incorporates a 5k race and children's races.

Until 2018, the start/finish area was at the Rathaus (town hall). The route was a 5km loop around Dresden's Old Town which sits on the left bank of the River Elbe.

In 2019, all races began and ended at the Messe Dresden trade fair grounds, approximately 2.5 kilometres north-west of the historic centre.
