Diekseelauf - runners at the start in Bad Malente-Gremsmühlen (Copyright © 2016 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


The Diekseelauf is a multi-terrain running event held yearly in August at the Dieksee lake in Schleswig-Holstein, the northernmost state in Germany.

The race is an 11.5km-long, undulating and very scenic run around the lake, the fourth-largest of about 200 lakes in the very beautiful Holsteinische Schweiz lakeland region.

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

The event also offers a 5km run and a 1.2km children's race. Both races take the runners out and back along the lake's southern shore.

The Diekseelauf was last held on 11 August 2019.
