Welcome to the 5th edition of the Freelander’s Trail Mersch-Hollenfels, which features slightly modified courses of the L (18km) and S (12.5km) routes. The start and finish area will be in Mersch around the spectacular CENTRE AQUATIQUE KROUNEBIERG. The race will be open for runners and (nordic)-walkers over both distances, in addition, there will be races over 1km resp. 2km for KIDS and YOUTH.

Athletes will pass some of the most interesting landmarks of the Valley of the Seven Castles :   Predigtstuhl, Hunnebur, Château de Hollenfels



  • the short S-trail will be slightly longer than the years before as we had to change the location of the first aid station in order to facilitate the access. All athletes will have to run until the waypoint km5.3 where both tracks will be splitted. The overall distance on the S-trail will increase from 11.2km to 12.5 km

  • the access to the forest from the ‘Monument National de l’Indépendance’ will be slightly changed for both distances – overall distance remains the same but route is less steep – however no change on the way back

  • the organizer will provide a supervised checkroom (consigne – Gepäckaufbewahrung) at the starting area where athletes can leave their pre-race clothes, keys a.s.o. if needed

  • the timing of the race will be guaranteed by in 2018 – athletes can use their existing chiplauf login credentials from other races to sign up for the trail. We expect much shorter waiting times/queues at the registration office, especially for the late registrations as there will be some self-registration terminals available.

  • in addition to that, race numbers will have integrated chips so the pairing of the separate chip and the race number is no longer needed (we expect a smooth hand-over of the race package)
