Werdauer Herbstmarathon - Werdauer Wald, Saxony, Germany (Copyright © 2015 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


Held in the vast Werdauer Wald (Werdau Forest) in Germany's state of Sachsen (Saxony), the Werdauer Herbstmarathon (Werdau Autumn Marathon) attracts about 300 to 400 runners and walkers.

Participants in the 42.2km marathon run two laps of a challenging course that begins and ends at the Sportschule Werdau sports complex on the edge of the town of Werdau.

The race is run half on asphalt and half on gravel roads. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is approximately 120 metres.

It is possible to form a team of two runners and run the marathon as a relay.

Last year, the fastest relay team (Die Falkenauer) finished the marathon in a time of 2hr 38min 12sec. Johann Riedmann (2hr 56min 52sec) and Juliane Meyer (3hr 3min 40sec) were the top individual finishers. The time limit to finish the race is five hours.

The event also offers a 12km walk which follows a different route.
