Chemnitz (Germany), Sunday 7 May 2017
The annual Stadtlauf running series starts off in Chemnitz, a city with a long industrial heritage and a population of about 250,000 people.
Situated in eastern Germany, Chemnitz was renamed Karl-Marx-Stadt by the GDR authorities in 1953, but it returned to its original name in 1990.
Three race distances are on offer: 5km, 10km and 21.1km half marathon.
The route is a flat 5km loop that takes the runners through the modern city centre, along the Straße der Nationen (a socialist-style boulevard) and around the Schlossteich (a very pretty small lake).
The start and the finish are at the Karl Marx Monument, an enormous 7.10m-high bronze head of Karl Marx — the second-largest bust in the world.
Instead of a bib number, participants get a technical T-shirt which they must wear during the race.
