Rostock-Warnemünde (Germany), Saturday 27 April 2013
Held on a very scenic multi-terrain course along the seafront of Warnemünde, one of Germany's most attractive Baltic Sea resorts, the Stoltera Küstenwaldlauf draws around 700 runners and walkers.
The event offers a 10k and a 3k run, as well as an 8k walk.
Located on the edge of the port of Rostock, Warnemünde is very popular for its wide sandy beaches, its many elegant 19th-century villas, its quaint old town, and its old fishing harbour.
All routes begin and end on Warnemünde's athletics track, near the beach.
Competitors run on the paved Seepromenade, on cycleways and footpaths, and on forest trails up and down to the Küstenwald ("Coastal Forest") on 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.
