The HFU Run is not about making best times and breaking records, but about having fun running together. The HFU Black Forest Run is a running event for everybody - students, staff, alumni, company representatives and guests. Anybody who enjoys running is welcome to join us!

To increase team spirit and fun, it is run as a team event. Mixed teams with any number of participants can be registered for the event. The winning team is the one with the highest number of kilometers run. Here it's not minutes and seconds which count, but the fun had in running together.

So grab your family and friends, colleagues and fellow students and get a team together!

The course

Like every year, the HFU Black Forest Run has two courses: a half-marathon (21.1 km)  and a 10K run. Both runs start together at 10.30am at the auditorium.

The 10km course goes from the inner courtyard of Furtwangen University (in front of the auditorium) via Baumannstraße, along the Breg past Schönenbach to the turning point after 5 km, and back along the same route. Participants can run, job, walk or hike along the 10K route.

The half-marathon is a classic 21.1 km long and goes on past the turning point of the 10 km course to Vöhrenbach and back. This part of the route is only used by the runners.
