The Mecklenburger Seen Runde is Germany's longest cycling marathon. An interview with initiator and chief organizer Detlef Koepke.
The Mecklenburg Lakes Round is legendary: 300 kilometres of track length, the participants have a maximum of 28 hours to reach the finish. The MSR is an event of superlatives: On the weekend of the event, about 750 emergency personnel ensure a smooth process, while there are 7 catering stations on the track. The participants drive through a lake and hilly landscape created in the last Ice Age, amidst a sea of blooming rapeseed fields. We talked to Detlfef Koepke about this unique event and its special features.
