Frankfurt's Run For More Time ties in with North America's Walk For Life, raising money for HIV and AIDS support. Recreational joggers and top-class runners gather for a 5km fundraising race through the city centre.
The race starts and finishes at Opernplatz, where there are presentations for the first three men and the first three women past the post, as well as for those who have raised the most in sponsorship. There is also a special walk for all those who don't fancy taking part in the race. Both the run and the walk start at the same time.

Run For More Time is accompanied by a party on the Opernplatz, which runs throughout the afternoon and into the evening, so if you're not up for competing then you can just cheer on the runners and enjoy yourself.
