The Lousberglauf on the legendary Teufelsberg is the cult run in Aachen. It has been a tradition for more than two decades and, along with the CHIO, is probably one of the best-known sporting events in Aachen. Whether professional or amateur runners, whether in running clothes or dressed up, everyone can participate. This year, the Aachen cult event will take place for the second time as a digital run: the Lousberglauf digital powered by STAWAG!

The Lousberglauf digital powered by STAWAG is location-independent, which means that the traditional distance of 5,555 meters can be run anywhere. The original route on the Lousberg is a tough one. With its special topography, the Lousberglauf presents a special challenge even for experienced runners. Just over half of the route is steadily uphill. For this reason, the athletes in the face-to-face version of the run have to use their strengths well in order to reach the finish line. In the digital version, everyone can choose their own routes.

The NRW UniLauf Cup has become an integral part of the Aachen Lousberglauf powered by STAWAG. Running teams from several universities compete against each other in four runs. The Lousberglauf powered by STAWAG is the final and decisive run. The team that gains the most points in the four runs wins the competition. With eleven victories, Aachen is the most successful team in the history of the running competition, which has been held since 2003. However, it remains exciting to see whether the Cologne team will be able to repeat its victory from 2020 or whether the Aachen team will be able to build on its earlier successes.

This year, the four runs of the NRW Unilauf Cup will also take place as digital runs. And another novelty this year is that individual runners now also have the opportunity to participate in the NRW Unilauf Cup without a team. For this purpose, participants can register for all four runs in a bundle.
