11th New Year's Eve Run Nuremberg 2013
Nürnberg (Germany), Tuesday 31 December 2013
Held annually on New Year's Eve in the city of Nürnberg (Nuremberg) in Germany's state of Bavaria, the Nürnberger Silvesterlauf attracts around 1500 runners.
Entrants can choose between the 5k or the 10k race.
The route is a 5km loop around the Wöhrder See, an artificial lake in the eastern part of the city. The course is mostly flat on footpaths through parkland along the shore.
Steeped in history, Nürnberg is a lively city of half a million people, and well worth a visit for its many reminders of its turbulent past, its outstanding museums, its beautiful half-timbered buildings (pictured), and its culinary delights.
