The Stadtlauf Nürnberg takes place on the Tag der Deutschen Einheit (Day of German Unity), Germany's national day, celebrated on October 3rd to commemorate the anniversary of German reunification.

Held in Nürnberg (Nuremberg), an old and historically important city of half a million people, the Stadtlauf is the largest running event in the Franconia region in northern Bavaria.

Last year, almost 6,000 runners took part in these three races:
