Only 100 days left until the popular „Harztor Run“ starts on the southern edge of the Harz mountains for the 7th time. For the organizing club members, this is almost unbelievable! What started in 2014 with a manageable starting field has developed splendidly. And this is how we are like many runners from near and far: we can hardly wait!
The highlight will be our "Half marathon by Thüringer Energie AG“, which will be held for the 6th time in 2020. Last year's winner, Sebastian Harz, set a new record in the annals of the „Harztor Run“ on the slightly different new course. We are curious if he will defend his first place this year. The start is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Sophienhof, a bus transport for the runners will be provided.
Naturally a little shorter, but not less difficult especially for hobby runners, the "8km run of the WBG Südharz Nordhausen“ is just over 8 kilometers, including two steep climbs are waiting for the participants. It is very nice that the runners share their route with the starters of the half marathon who will pass in Ilfeld. A bus transport to the start is also planned here, the start is scheduled for 2.10 p.m.
All other races are started in Niedersachswerfen. These are the „5km run of the Kreissparkasse Nordhausen“, the „2km Everyone's run of the Nordthüringer Volksbank“, the „2K - Students run“ and the „5km Nordic Walking of the Harztor-Lauf e.V.“. For the smallest runners there is the „Bambini run of the Reisebüro Hahnemann“. This will be great for all children and the whole visitors on the festival site in Niedersachswerfen.
Also in this year there will be our popular company or team cup "Give me five" whith an advertised challenge cup. Five people from companies, clubs or just friends can register. The team with the lowest number of points (the individual rankings of the best four are scored) wins and can take the trophy home. Informations about registration are on our website.
Since a few years, dogs - of course together with their owners - are also being allowed to start at the „Harztor Run“. Thanks to the great discipline of all the two-legged and four-legged friends, this is an absolute highlight for everyone involved and also for the audience. That's why we offer „Running with dogs“ also in 2020 and we look forward to many participants.
