Important information for all runners

We are happy that you are participating in the Sudstroum Escher Kulturlaf.
In order for you to be well informed before the run and to ensure a smooth flow of the event,
please read the information hereunder carefully.

The central location of the Sudstroum Escher Kulturlaf is at Fonds Belval under the blast furnaces.
This is the location of the start and finish line of the run, the award ceremony and the “After Kulturlaf Party”.
The distribution of the start numbers and the runner’s bags is at the building Fonds Belval.

Getting on site

Getting on the site Belval is particularly easy by bus, by bike and on foot.

For cars, there are 4 parking spaces available for the runners, their companions and the spectators:
Parking CFL
Parking Belval Plaza I and II
Parking Square Mile
Parking Université

To get on site, take the motorway A4 in direction of Esch-sur-Alzette, from there, follow the signs “Sudstroum Escher Kulturlaf” until you arrive on the site of the run. Please allow for enough time to arrive. A start under stress can prevent you from performing the run as you intended too.

Culinary Stands in the Food Village & “After Kulturlaf Party”

“Gesond iessen, méi bewegen” – “Eat healthy, move more”, that’s the slogan of the national sensitisation campaign for a healthier lifestyle, a campaign we continue to support this year. Various local associations offer different specialities for every taste. Also, don’t miss the concerts of the “After Kulturlaf Party”!



The day of the Sudstroum Escher Kulturlaf, you get a bag labelled with a number, in which you put your belongings before the start. We thank you to allow for enough time to hand in your bag. The use of the Sudstroum Escher Kulturlaf bag is mandatory; we do not accept any other bags.

Race Timing

The race timing is done exclusively with a chip integrated in your starter number. The individual Champion chip is not allowed at this run. Important: the race timing is done via the starter number and it is indispensable to fix it well – it absolutely has to be fixed  on the front side of your t-shirt. It also important not to fold it.


The start of the main runs (10 miles / 10 km) is at 17.00 next to the blast furnaces. Every runner is timed individually. The start of the Yuppi-Mini-Kulturlaf 1000m is at 15.00.

The start of the yuppi-mini-kulturlaf is at 4 PM.

Cultural Route

The route of the Sudstroum Escher Kuturlaf not only passes along different cultural sites in the city. Musicians and music groups also play on stages and in natural sites along the route before, during and after the passage of the runners.

Catering during the run

The first runners (10 km) cross the finish line after about 30 minutes. Considering the relatively short effort, there is no need for a big catering. For the slower runners and the amateur runners, though, a regular intake in liquids and energy is important. For that reason we provide 3 catering stations along the route of the 10 km run, as well as one more at the finish line. For the 10 miles run, there are 5 catering stations as well as one at the finish line.

Award ceremony & “After Kulturlaf Party”

The award ceremony is located under the blast furnaces. After the run, the concerts of the “After Kulturlaf Party” will take place.


The results are available from Sunday, September 9th onwards on our website

Changing rooms, showers & “After Kulturlaf Party”

The changing rooms and showers of the Lycée Technique de Belval are available with separated spaces for women and men. A shuttlebus will commute  between the finish line and the Lycée Bel-Val (about 1 km drive).
