We would like to thank a total of 1255 runners who made it across the finish line yesterday. Thanks for keeping up the great effort and good spirits, even through rainy weather conditions! In 2019, the DEULUX race resumes its "old" original course. We look forward to the completion of the new bike bridge Metzdorf (DEU) -Mörsdorf (LUX) and to the 28th DEULUX run on 9 November 2019.
