Bernauer Stadtmauerlauf/ 24 Stunden von Bernau 2018-Saturday, September 8

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to do a 24-hour running challenge? If so, this is your chance. The 24-hour challenge requires a team of 5-10 runners and the route is composed of a track in which each runner will complete a certain amount of continuous laps. However, if you just want to run as an individual, the event has other racing options! There’s the 3.6km race and the 8.2km race. For children, there is a 1.8km fun run. The deadline for registration is September 5th.
