This Stadtlauf in Germany's state of Bayern (Bavaria) draws a crowd of about 1,000 runners to the historic centre of Erding, an old beer-brewing town of 36,000 residents, situated in an agricultural region near the city of München (Munich).

Last year, Julian Kreibich (32 minutes 1 second) and Bernadette Pichlmaier (39 minutes 41 seconds) were the fastest of 624 finishers in the 10k race, which is five laps of an accurately-measured course through the town centre.

Around 350 young athletes took part in the children's races.

In order to avoid overcrowding on the course, the 10k runners start in two waves. The faster runners start off at 2.30pm, the others one hour later. The time limit to complete the course is 90 minutes.
