Cultural trail

The “Sudstroum escher kulturlaf” circuit not only passes along various cultural sites in the city. Musicians and bands also play on podiums and natural sites all along the race route, before, during and after the runners’ passage.


The first runners (10 kilometers) will cross the finish line after about 30 minutes. Given the relatively short duration of the effort, a large refreshment area is not necessary. For slower runners and amateur racers, however, a regular supply of liquids and energy is important. To this end, we are providing 2 refreshment stations on the 10 kilometers course, 3 refreshment stations on the 10 miles course and 4 refreshment stations on the half-marathon course. Refreshments will also be available at the finish.

Award ceremony & “After Kulturlaf Party”

The awards ceremony takes place in the “Maison des Arts et des Etudiants” in Esch-Belval at around 8.15 pm. After the ceremony, there will be live music.


The results will be available on our website the day after the race.

Changing rooms & showers

Changing rooms and showers (for men and women) are available at the Lycée Bel-Val. After the race, a shuttle bus will operate permanently between the finish area and the Lycee (distance: approx. 1 kilometer).
