The 14th HFUHalf Marathon and 10K race starts at the auditorium of Furtwangen University on Saturday October 27, 2018 at 10.30am. On the evening before, Friday 26, 2018 the legendary Pasta Party takes place in the cafeteria at 6.00pm

The most important things is taking part, not trying to break records - running together, meeting interesting people and above all, having fun. The runs through the beautiful Black forest landscape and the fantastic supporting programme make for a really special experience.

Students, lectures, staff members, alumni, company representatives and guests are all welcome to take part.

There is also a team competition so you can have fun in a team, too. Mixed teams with any number of participants can be registered. The team that achieves the highest number of kilometres run will win. In this case it is not minutes and seconds that count, but the fun of running together.


There are two courses: a half-marathon (21.1 km)  and a 10km run. Both runs will start at 10.30am.

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 on the same route. Everyone can run, job, walk or ramble 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 course is a running track.
