The biggest running event in southern Austria – Kärnten Läuft – is getting closer and closer. Here you will find all necessary and organizational information for your perfect running weekend in Carinthia. Just to let you know: soon you will find here not only a single page but a fully website in englisch with even more information.
The pre-registration for Kärnten Läuft is open and you can register yourself online here.
You can also easily register for all running events of Kärnten Läuft 2017 in the Running City on „Metnitzstrand“ Klagenfurt. This is the same spot where registered runners do get their running documents (bib number, starter bag, etc.). The registration and document pick-up is open from Friday 18th of August from 2pm to 8pm and on Saturday 19th of August from 8:30am to 8pm. The registration is possible within one hour before each event but not on Sunday.
Please notice that there is no pick-up and registration possible on Sunday on race day!
If you’re not able to pick up your documents on your own, someone else can do this with your confirmation that you received when registered for the event.
Kärnten Läuft has a new official timing system from MaxFun timing. With this system no running Chip is required. The measurement works with your bib-number. So if you mount your bib-number on your shirt, the time will be measured automatically.
Getting to the start of the half-marathon and quarter-marathon is most easiest per train. There’s a train station on the opposite of the „Minimundus“ where you also find the big parking location for Kärnten Läuft. From this train station you can get to the start of both races with the same train. Exit at „Pörtschach“ for the quarter marathon and at „Velden“ for the halfmarathon. Your bib-number counts as a ticket, so you don’t need to buy an extra one.
Please check the map below to see where the train station and parking spaces are. You will also find the train schedule on the right under „Downloads“.
Bring your stuff to the start, we bring it down to the finish area. There will be a clothing transport from halfmarathon start and quarter-marathon start to the finish area of Kärnten Läuft. The starter bag which you get with all your documents serves as your own transportation-bag since there will be your bib-number on it. Bring it to the start, put all your stuff you don’t need while running in it, hand it to the big trucks to one of our assistants and enjoy running at the lake.
There will be certain pacemaker for the half-marathon. You will find them at the start, marked with big balloons. The pacemaker offer service for the following results: 1:30, 1:40, 1:45, 1:50, 2:00, 2:10, 2:30
