The running course is marked with neon green arrows and boundary lines. Each kilometre is marked both on the running course on the ground and with a clearly visible sign at the edge.

The flat, almost traffic-free running course leads on asphalt, gravel and cycle paths through the southern Erba area, then along the Main-Danube canal or right arm of the Regnitz into the grove to the Hainspitze. From here the route continues along the left arm of the Regnitz, past the historic lock 100, along the towpath redesigned on the occasion of the State Garden Show to the crane, past the Old Town Hall, through the fishery. Then the course runs along the newly laid out riverside path, past the concert hall, over the new bridge footbridge (the former "Fünferlessteg") into the Erba area and there to the finish.

Relay teams will be relieved at the beverage station at Buger Spitze in Hainpark (approx. at kilometre 5.5).
