24 September – Route du Vin
The Route du Vin, a semi-marathon length, is well known as one of the last running events of the season, but also as one of the tougher ones due to its track along the Moselle river, being flat, but also burning hot when the sun is shining. It’s for a reason that the Moselle river bank produces excellent white wines!;) Registration via the FLA website.
