Joggers, walkers and drivers: The 28th “JP Morgan City Jogging” will occupy a good portion of Luxembourg city this Sunday.

Several speeds are on offer: six and ten kilometre jogs officially start at 10:00, although participants can start anytime between 10:00 and 11:00. “City Walking” and “Nordic Walking” groups will start at 10:10. A one kilometre children’s walk starts at 11:30.

Departing from the Coque, the course runs down through Weimershof, Clausen and the Grund; then up the path between rue de la Semois and avenue Marie-Thérèse; through the city centre; crosses the Grand-Duchesse Charlotte Bridge, before returning to Kirchberg to finish back at the Coque for the post-race concert and apéritif. A map is available here (PDF).

The city will close streets in those areas from approximately 8:00 to 14:00, and buses will run along modified routes (link in French). A free shuttle will run between the Glacis parking lot and the Coque.

The event is free, although t-shirts and souvenirs will be on sale. Advanced registration is closed, but an on-site registration stand will be open near the Coque from 8:45 to 10:45.

Organised by the Fédération Luxembourgeoise d'Athlétisme and the City of Luxembourg, last year’s event attracted more than 3,500 participants.
