The Sommernachtslauf München ("Summer Night Run Munich") usually draws around 1,500 or more runners to the Olympiapark which was built for the Olympic Games 1972 in the city of Munich in 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, pictured).

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

The route crosses the Olympiaberg hill, which is a bit of a challenge, but it's well worth the effort because the hill offers excellent views of the Olympiasee (Olympic Lake) and of the many sports venues in the park.
