As part of the Dog Race, a dog fair suited for the whole family will be hosted on Saturday, August 19th from 8:30 am to 11 am. Serving as an exchange platform for dog owners and experts, exchanging valuable tips on sports and training with dogs, dog care, veterinary care for dogs, and many other subjects at the fair. A complimentary breakfast ensures that owners and their four-legged friends have a perfect start in the day. Likewise, dog pools and the Wörthersee provide excellent opportunities for both humans and dogs to have a refreshing break.
Want to join in, but are unsure if your dog is fit enough or suitable for the run? Simply ask our expert Dr. Pekarek via email:
Only healthy and regularly vaccinated dogs are permitted to participate. Furthermore, dogs that are in heat are also not allowed to participate. Dogs have to be kept on a leash at all times during the race. The organizer assumes no liability for injuries or damage to humans and animals. The use of muzzles is recommended.
Kärnten Läuft Running City & Parking:
The Kärnten Läuft “Running City” is located directly on the Metznitzstrand (beach) in Klagenfurt, next to the Wörthersee Strandbad. It is easily accessible by car, train, bus, or bike. The car park at the Minimundus, located right after the A2 motorway exit, offers ample parking for all visitors and runners on each of the days. The Running City is within short walking distance of the car park as well as from the train station, which is located a few meters away from the car parks.
