The Laufsportverein Basel takes over the traditional event from Andy Werdenberg and the Basler Bruggelauf club, continues it and complements the event with the popular team competitions (Ekiden).
The event will now take place on Sunday, 26 August 2018. The start is in the Eisengasse and leads in the direction of the Mittlere-Brücke. The goal is for all participants in the marketplace.
During the traditional 10 mile Basel Bruggelauf, the unique river and city scenery along the banks of the Rhine, across all five bridges over the Rhine and the varied course of the route provide the incentive for this sporting challenge.
New is the Ekiden competition over the marathon and the 20km distance.
On the historic tour of the old town, the team experience is in the foreground because only together can the planned sporting goals be achieved. The individual discipline “running” thus becomes a team sport. The Ekiden running format is attractive for participants and spectators: runners pass the spectators several times on the 2.5 km long stretch of the “Old Town Arena”. Fever, support and applause are possible in a unique way.
Six runners cover distances of 10km, 5km, 10km, 5km, 5km, 5km, and 7km over the Ekiden marathon distance (42.2km).
Three runners cover distances of 10km, 5km and 5km over the 20km distance (20km) in Ekiden.
In both Ekidendisziplinen can be started in woman teams, men teams as well as mixed teams.
