The Lousberglauf digital powered by STAWAG will take place again this year as a digital running event. From July 5 to 11, participants will have the opportunity to complete their run and be part of Aachen's most popular running event. The continuation of the event is made possible with the help of STAWAG, which is thus taking over the title sponsorship for the 17th time.


The event will go digital, meaning that runners will complete the traditional course of 5,555 meters at a location of their choice and measure their time independently via a running app. They then submit their results to the organizer, the University Sports Center (HSZ). "We are delighted to have found a digital alternative to the cult event Lousberglauf and the hosting of the NRW Uni-Lauf Cup. We wish the students, employees and above all citizens in the Aachen region, an exciting sporting event," says Peter Lynen, Head of the HSZ. Whether professional or amateur runners, whether in running clothes or dressed up, everyone can participate here.

NRW Uni-Lauf Cup digital 2021

The Lousbergauf traditionally takes place as part of the NRW Uni-Lauf Cup. After the successful premiere last year, the NRW Uni-Lauf Cup will be organized digitally again this year representing a running series of the university sports institutions Dortmund, Cologne, Münster and Aachen. The first run of the series over 10 km starts already on June 7. The special feature this year is the new special ranking, which allows individuals to enter the running series.
