Participants in the Diekseelauf run 11.5km of an undulating and very scenic multi-terrain course around the Dieksee, the fourth-largest of about 200 lakes in the Holsteinische Schweiz lakeland region in northern Germany.

Starting and finishing on the lakeside promenade in the resort of Malente, the route is a mix of roads and trails through lovely woods and rolling countryside and through the very pretty village of Timmdorf.
