After the little ones (550 m) and the student race (1.230 m) there will finally be the competitors of the public race for everyone exploring the Innenhafen area and the way to the city hall and back while covering their distance of 5.000 metres.
The promotion car of the World Games 2005 Ltd. will show the right way to the runners of both the 5.000 and the 10.000 metre race.
As a matter of course, the sporty World Games 2005 Ltd. staff will also be taking part with a strong team. Thus, they will send a signal to
Duisburg and its citizens saying that on the verge of the Olympic Games in Athens and one year before the World Games the organisation team is already in an Olympic condition.
Additionally, there will be the World Games stand providing the athletes as well as the citizens with information on next year’s huge event. A Flying Disc performance will give the spectators an idea about the precision necessary when handling this piece of sports equipment.
