As the name implies, the Klagenfurt City Run takes you through the centre of the Carinthian provincial capital; a sporty combination of the city’s Mediterranean flair and Austro-Italian architecture, so to speak. Various competitions, ranging in distance from 200 metres to 10 kilometres, guarantee that every runner will find their perfect distance. There are races for younger children and school children around the Lindwurm, as well as the more demanding 5 and 10 kilometre routes.
Due to the spatial situation in the winding alleys of the historical old town, the event organisers have chosen to limit the number of participants to 1,400 to ensure the high quality of the race.
Depending on the race and time of registration the starting fee ranges from 4 to 17 Euros, with each participant receiving a packed starter’s goodie bag and, when they reach the finish line, also a medal. Athletes are cheered on by the many spectators who, together with plenty of refreshment stations, ensure an excellent, scenic and sporty experience.
