Streckenplan Frauenlauf

Both circuits are flat. Especially the 5k track is ideal for beginners. The track is closed for traffic for the duration of running competitions. 

To ensure the quality of the run despite the continuously increasing number of participants, on May 17, 2020, runners will start in staggered blocks. Starting in blocks avoids crowding at the start, on the track, at the finish line and in the finish area!
