This year Kärnten Läuft invites you back to the turquoise- blue waters of the Wörthersee. Our organizing team is committed to composing the ideal mix of sporting excellence, running holidays, and family experience.
Enclosed, you will find all the information regarding the race and the route for the Bambini Sprint. You will also find the sign up in the right column.
The route runs alongside the Metnitzstrand beach around the Running City. About 200 meters have to be completed by the bambinis. The fun of running and doing sports is prioritized in this event. That is why, even though there will be a timekeeping, there is no ranking.
Kärnten Läuft Running City & Parking:
The Kärnten Läuft “Running City” is located directly on the Metznitzstrand (beach) in Klagenfurt, next to the Wörthersee Strandbad. It is easily accessible by car, train, bus, or bike. The car park at the Minimundus, located right after the A2 motorway exit, offers ample parking for all visitors and runners on each of the days. The Running City is within short walking distance of the car park as well as from the train station, which is located a few meters away from the car parks.
Pick up of Start Documents
To be able to participate in the Kleine Zeitung Wörthersee half marathon you need a bib number. Your bib number contains the chip necessary for timekeeping (powered by MaxFun). When picking up your number at the registration tent in the Running City, you will also get a Kärnten Läuft duffel back which serves for the transport of clothing during the race.
New this year: The youngsters will receive two bib numbers when participating in the Bambinispring – one for your child and one for the person who picks the child up.
The schedule: The youngsters are going to be checked in at a pre-start area (finish line). They will then be chaperoned and walked to the start by Kärnten Läuft crew members. While walking to the start, the little ones walk their route to ensure they know where to run. After the run, the youngsters receive their medals and drinks in the pre- start area (also the finish line).
The pick-up of your children will happen at the check-in at the pre-start area. In order for you to pick your child up, it is essential that the person picking up the child shows the second bib number at the check-in area. The youngsters can not leave the pre-start area without the Kärnten Läuft Crew having received the second bib number. These measures were put in place to ensure the safety and well-being of your children. It should prevent any children from leaving the finish area without their parents and thereby getting lost.
