Information & Equipment

Everything you need to know about your personal equipment

To get you ready for our big running weekend, we will put together an exciting package of offers again. Look forward to your customizable, printable start number, musical motivation taking the form of a selected playlist, and much more. Come back regularly to explore our toolbox!

Reason to run!

Inspired by our round course, it is not about top athletic performance, but about getting involved with others and cancer research at the NCT Heidelberg.

This engagement now spans the globe: from the Lofoten Islands to Antarctica, from San Francisco to New Zealand, we have already had runners at the start.

And this year? Take a look at the world map to see where the running will take place from July 5 to 7, 2024! Click to open the map in Google Maps in a new browser window.

NCT-Run: the Toolbox

Alone. Together! Use the NCT running equipment for download and get into the right running mood. With the personal start number the selfie of the running unit becomes a real finisher picture.

Personalizable start number

No official start number will be issued at registration this year. With our individually personalisable start number for download you can identify yourself as a participant during the virtual NCT run and make your mark: Alone. Together!

Every motivation to run with us is a story and therefore as individual as we all are. Show others your reason if you like and use the second start number motif - to motivate, to remember and to hold on to.

Simply download the PDF file, add your individual start number, name and team name and print it.

NCT-run playlist

The right music for a run is different for everyone - we know that for sure. Nevertheless we have the ultimate NCT run playlist. Because it can be motivating to share something with others. Completely in the sense of: Alone. Together!
