Dresden (Germany), Sunday 16 June 2013

Zwinger, Dresden, Germany (Copyright © 2012 Hendrik Böttger)


This popular Stadtlauf offers a 5k, a 10k, and a half marathon race through Dresden, a city of over 500,000 people, situated on the River Elbe in eastern Germany.

The start and the finish will be on Altmarkt, a vast square in the city centre.

Competitors will run on roads and cycleways along both banks of the Elbe and past many magnificent buildings, for instance the Zwinger palace (pictured above) or the Semperoper.

The half marathon consists of two laps. The route is gently undulating.

Instead of a bib number, participants will get a technical T-shirt which they must wear during the race. The entry fees are € 20 for advance entries, and € 25 for late entries.


Update (10 June 2013):

Due to severe flooding in Dresden, the route and the start times will be changed. Please check the event website for further details!
