Held in the vast Werdauer Wald (Werdau Forest) in Germany's state of Sachsen (Saxony), the Werdauer Herbstmarathon (Werdau Autumn Marathon) attracts approximately 300 participants.

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

Half of the course is on asphalt and the other half on gravel roads. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is about 120 metres.

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

Last year, the first relay team finished the race in a time of 2hr 39min 27sec. The fastest individual runners were Tobias Henkel (2hr 49min 22sec) and Nadine Krah (3hr 46min 42sec). The time limit to complete the course is five hours.
