A fast, scenic course (General Comments)|
T. K. from San Francisco (12/19/03)
This is a relatively small race, with 1,000 - 1,700 runners. I've raced it four times, each was very enjoyable. The course is very scenic, with one loop around a small lake and several long stretches along a river. There are few spectators, though a fair concentration in Echternach, through which the race passes several times. The course is relatively flat and run on well paved streets or paths. It is fairly competitive, the race is usually the Luxembourgisch national championship. There are adequate drink stops, and pre- and post-race activities are well organized. One risk is the weather, it can be cold and rainy this time of year.
