Citylauf 2024: registration starts on 28 January

Citylauf 2023

"2023 we have experienced a great 22nd Bocholt City Run and will ensure that the popular running event is organised to perfection in 2024", says Andreas Stockhausen from the City Sports Association.

Of course, this also includes registration, which will start on the last Sunday in January: the registration portal for runners will go live at bocholter-citylauf.de on 28 January 2024 at 12 noon sharp. The organisers are expecting a huge rush, especially for the places in the 5 km and 10 km races.

Five races will be offered again on Saturday, 4 May 2024 . The schoolchildren will start with their own 2.5 kilometre run. In the third race, pupils will compete together over the double distance (five kilometres).

This is followed by the five-kilometre "Everyman" run, which is becoming more and more popular every year, before the public and road runners take on the 10-kilometre course at 8 pm as the highlight. Hendrik and Esther Pfeiffer, now married, are the defending champions. Pfeiffer has just announced that he is considering taking part in the city run again and making it a tradition.

Staggered entry fees

The entry fees are not only staggered according to the respective races, but also according to the time of registration. Until 29 February 2024, the entry fee for the 10 km fun run and road race is 12 euros, 11 euros for the fun run for everyone and 5 euros for the 5-person school run. From 1 March, the entry fee will be 15 euros for the 10-kilometre run and 14 euros for the fun run.
