… the 21st Franconian Switzerland Marathon on September 4th, 2022. We will celebrate the 21st edition of the marathon with you through the wild and romantic landscape of Franconian Switzerland from the Neideck to the Walberla - past picturesque villages, castles, rocks and many festivals along the way! The route on the car-free federal road ensures optimal conditions for all participating athletes. Tens of thousands of spectators and a colorful supporting program along the route give the event the character of a folk festival every year. I cordially invite you to do so.
Dr. Hermann Ulm, District Administrator
The route profile is relatively flat and runs completely on the car-free B 470 through the heart of the wild and romantic Franconian Switzerland - between Walberla and Neideck: First, the athletes start in Ebermannstadt - towards Forchheim and follow the B 470 for exactly 5 km to the first junction to Weilersbach. There the first turn takes place and it goes back to Ebermannstadt. After crossing the 10km mats in Ebermannstadt, the runners follow the B 470 until the turn again between Muggendorf and Sachsenmühle after around 21.1 km (turn for hand bikers in Behringersmühle). It goes back to Ebermannstadt and again on the 10km loop to Weilersbach and back.
