Rostock-Warnemünde (Germany), Saturday 30 April 2016
The Stoltera Küstenwaldlauf draws around 600 runners to the beach promenade of Warnemünde, one of Germany's best-known Baltic Sea resorts.
Located on the fringes of the port of Rostock, Warnemünde features wide sandy beaches, elegant 19th-century villas, a quaint old town, and an old fishing harbour.
Two multi-terrain races are available, 3km and 10km long, starting and finishing on the athletics track of the Sportplatz near the beach.
The route runs along the Seepromenade and through the Küstenwald woods on the Stoltera cliffs which rise up to 20 metres at the highest point.
The 10km race is two laps (ca. 6.5km + 3.5km). Participants run eastwards to the lighthouse and then twice westwards to the Stoltera cliffs.
In 2015, the top finishers were Johann Buttler (34:24) and Carmen Siewert (38:26).
The event also offers a non-competitive 8km walk along the seafront.
