Munich (Germany), Sunday 23 June 2013
Once a year the Marienplatz turns orange when up to 18,000 runners, all sporting orange shirts, meet on Munich's main square for the annual Stadtlauf München.
At registration, all participants receive a technical T-shirt which they have to wear during the race.
The half marathon starts at 8.00am, the 10k at 11.10am, and the 5k at 1.00pm (when it may be blazing hot in the city). Children run 2k.
The route is a mix of roads and gravel paths. Starting and finishing on Marienplatz, competitors run through the city centre and through the vast Englischer Garten, Munich's largest public park. Participants in the half marathon run two laps.
In 2012, around 5900 runners took part in the half marathon. The top finishers were Johannes Hillebrand (1:12:00) and Sonja Tajsich (1:22:22).
