Leipzig (Germany), Saturday 15 August 2015
This ultra marathon race takes place in the green north-western part of Leipzig, a city of more than 530,000 people in the state of Sachsen (Saxony) in eastern Germany.
Three races are on offer — 50km (five laps), 100km (ten laps), and a 100km relay race for teams of ten runners (10 x 10km).
Starting on the athletics track of the August-Bebel-Kampfbahn, which is about 6.5km from the city centre, the race takes the runners through the Burgaue forest and around the Auensee (pictured), and then along the same route back to the start/finish area.
Approximately 70 per cent of the route is on dirt roads and 30 per cent on asphalt.
The time limit to finish the race is eight hours for the 50k, twelve hours for the relay race, and thirteen hours for the 100k.
