33rd Telekom Vivicitta Spring Half Marathon
The Vivicitta Spring Half Marathon is part of a 2-day long event all about running. On Sunday runners can choose between a half marathon (21 km) or a Vivicitta (10 km) while on Saturday the focus is on shorter distances for the less experienced runners. With distances ranging from 750 m to 21 km everyone in the family can find their own challenge and welcome the spring by running!
There are over 30.000 participants on all the distances, with more than 9000 half marathon runners, 6000 Vivicitta (10 km) and 5000 Midicitta (7 km) runners. However, no need to worry about crowding and overtaking as the start is done in waves so everyone has plenty of space to run.
In 2016, there were more than 2100 foreign runners, including 1300 on the half marathon, from 74 countries. Most runners came from Germany, Britain, and France, but there were also participants from Peru, Malaysia, and Belize, just to name a few.
Along the course there will be refreshments every 4 to 5 kilometers and of course continuous medical supervision. Pace runners will help you hit your desired tempo. But having fun is just as important as running so we’ll maintain several musical points along the course for your entertainment.
Each year participants receive a unique, race branded technical T-shirt and finishers are given a gorgeous medal.
