European trail running is not all about the alps. In fact, one of the prettiest trail running events of Germany takes place in the world famous old town of Heidelberg. Surrounded by the mountains of the Odenwald, Heidelberg offers amazing trail running experiences just a few meters from the city center.
The GELITA Trail Marathon Heidelberg first took place in 2013 and developed quickly to the biggest regional trail running event. With its finish line in the middle of the famous old town which offers a beautiful view on Heidelberg castle it’s also popular for trail running tourists.
If you think trail running events that are not taking place in the alps could not be hard, you have to try GELITA Trail Marathon which offers a full marathon, 30k and 10k distances. The course of the full marathon connects three mountains summing up to 1’500 vertical meters. The most challenging part is the mountain Königstuhl which has to be climbed after 35k using the Himmelsleiter – a staircase consisting out of 850 sandstone steps.
