The Red Rock Challenge is a combination of sporting and cultural event in the south of Luxembourg. Whether you are fond of Mountain biking or prefer a Trail Run, this challenge offers the participants to discover the great wealth of industrial and natural heritage of the communes of the former mining area.

Discover southern Luxemburg

The Red Rock Challenge departs from Belval (for the most of the races) and connects, like every year, the region’s major tourist points such as Little Italy in Dudelange, the National Mining and Iron Museum in Rumelange, the Information Centre Ellergronn in Esch/Alzette and the Industrial and Railway Park Fond-de-Gras in Differdange/Pétange, which will act as relay points and water stops along the route.

The various tracks will lead the participants through the natural reserves of Haard, Hesselbierg, Steebierg, Lalléngerbierg and Giele Botter and come together at the Lycée Belval, where a festive gathering awaits participants at the end of the competitions.

You also will find out some musical animation, food & drinks, cloakroom & warm shower, bike wash (depends on the race you will participate).

So enjoy and relax.


We invite you to play an active part in this unique event and at the same time boost your corporate image.
