Running at the EuroGames 2020

The track will run along side of the river Rhine and across the beautiful green landscape around. Start and finish is directly in the Sportpark beneath the Arena. The courses are unique and will allow you to enjoy the freshness of nature of the Rhine that is beautiful at this time of year. The course is hand-measured and may show deviations. These competitions are open to all, regardless of ability!

The starting documents will be handed out at the central registration or at the check-in table directly behind the north-east entrance. For the street races, late registrations are possible, as long as the participation limit is not reached. Registration is possible until one hour before the start of the first race.

 

Shower/restrooms/Changing rooms

There are sufficient showers and toilets inside the Athletics Hall next to the start and finish line. The changing rooms are also there. Inside the Athletics Hall are lockers, which can be closed with padlocks. You have to bring the padlocks by yourself! The changing rooms are not guarded during the competition. We will also organize a guarded luggage space next to the start.

 

Medals

Each starter will get a participation medal.

 

Winner ceremony

There will be an award ceremony for the first three of each age group - expected soon after the last competition.

 

support/visitors/friends

There is enough space for visitors to support the athletes around the course and inside the finishing stadium. Please follow the signs and the advice of our volunteer helpers and do not cross the course without asking the volunteers. Inside the Sportpark we will offer something to eat and drink.
