Running for those who can't!
Welcome to Munich, at the foot of the Alps – a modern metropolis with great heart and long tradition. Hospitable, vibrant, busy and above all, charming. Located amidst the most beautiful Bavarian nature, it is surrounded by numerous lakes and an impressive mountain scenery. With a population of nearly 1.5 million Munich is not only Bavaria’s most populous city, it is also the city with the largest area in the whole state. Based on economic criteria Munich is even considered a major global metropolis. Its great number of tourist attractions, varied cultural offering and many international sporting events as well as the Oktoberfest, turn the Bavarian capital into a real hot spot for tourism.
The Wings for Life World Run starts in the northern part of the city – in the Olympiapark. Built for the Olympic Summer Games 1972, the site bundles a handful of famous buildings including the “Olympiastadion”, the “Olympiahalle” and the “Olympiaturm”. However, it is most famous for its unique tented roof construction. From here, the race continues towards the Fasanerie, through Allach and Eschenried, all the way to the western part of the city and its idyllic surroundings. After 40 km the route makes a sharp turn and starts winding towards the south of Munich, heading straight for the Ammersee and towards the Alps, whose massive mountains will be clearly visible for all runners – should the weather cooperate.
