Rostock-Warnemünde (Germany), Saturday 28 April 2012
Held on a very attractive and scenic multi-terrain course along the Baltic coast, the Stoltera Küstenwaldlauf attracts over 500 runners and walkers every year.
The event offers a 10km and a 3km run, as well as an 8km walking loop.
The route follows the seafront of Warnemünde, which is one of Germany's most popular Baltic Sea resorts with wide sandy beaches, many elegant 19th-century villas, picturesque small fishermen's houses, and an old fishing harbour.
Starting and finishing on the athletics track near the beach, competitors run on the paved Seepromenade, on bikeways and footpaths, and on forest trails up to the "Stoltera" cliffs, which rise up to 20 metres at the highest point. Participants in the 10km race run out-and-back to the lighthouse, and then two loops to the cliffs.
Last year, the 10k winners were Steffen Peters (33:21) and Carmen Siewert (37:08).
