The Slusialauf is an annual multi-terrain running event held in the wooded foothills of the Thüringer Wald (Thuringian Forest), a 150km-long mountain range in Central Germany.
Participants have the choice between three very hilly routes:
- 5.5km Schnupperlauf (beginner race)
- 14.1km Hauptlauf (run and nordic walking)
- 21.1km Halbmarathon (half marathon)
All races are run on mixed terrain, mostly on trails or gravel roads, starting and ending on the Sportplatz (sports field) of Schleusingen, a small town that is well worth a visit for its its impressive castle (pictured below) and its many picturesque half-timbered buildings.
The event also incorporates several shorter races for children.
