The Sommernachtslauf München ("Summer Night Run Munich") takes place in the Olympiapark which was built for the Olympic Games 1972 in Munich, Germany.

Two races are on offer (5.3km, 10km), both starting at 7.30pm on the Aufwärmplatz (warm-up athletics track) next to the Olympiastadion (Olympic Stadium).

You can still decide during the race if you want to finish after one lap (5.3km) or after two laps (10km).

The route is quite challenging as it crosses the Olympiaberg hill but this is well worth the effort because it offers fine views of the Olympiasee (Olympic Lake) and of the many sports venues in the park.

Last year, more than 1,500 runners took part in the Sommernachtslauf. Mathias Mayr was the fastest 10k finisher in a time of 32 minutes 23 seconds. Regina Neumayr led the women across the line in 36 minutes 53 seconds.
