Greeting for the City Run 2022

Follows soon…

Dear sports fans,

The International Korschenbroich City Run sets off a great wave of movement year after year. The run is an institution and has so many fans that in 2020 it was even well-received as a virtual event under the Corona conditions. To move outside – a lot of space and fresh air all around – this is possible in these times. Our hope: The run can retake place in 2021 as usual and fascinates all age and ability classes from Kids to senior citizens. Our city is full of color when the streets change into a racetrack! And the range is so varied when the shops open their doors when sponsors, clubs, and the city marketing offer a varied accompanying program! Whether you run or watch: it’s never boring at the City Run in Korschenbroich. I’m looking forward to the next go-ahead. Preferably live on August 22, 2021. See you there!

Yours Marc Venten
