Once again a long, varied run for runners who have long, slow endurance runs on their training plan.
This time, Jeswell and her marathon dog (12 kilometers for Jeswell = 1 dog marathon for the little Schnuffi) were largely present, who thanks to drinking and bathing breaks - see photo 3 - kept up very well.

The Hitgenheierweg is a very varied, approximately 12km long, moderately difficult circular walk around and in Willebadessen. The starting point is the train station, which has P + R parking spaces and a hiking parking lot in the neighborhood.
The north-eastern section along the so-called "butterfly path", which runs along the ridge of the Nethebge, is particularly attractive. Here you can see not only the namesake butterflies (from around mid-May - bluish see photo no.21) on the slopes, but also rare plants such as orchids - especially orchids - and entire meadows full of cowslips (unfortunately only until mid / late May).
From the heights of the circular route, the wide panoramic view is almost unparalleled - means: only a few wind turbines and luckily only in one place.
A short detour from the circular route to the monastery and the sculpture park is recommended. Here you can also take a break in the Café am Torhaus or in the "Kaffeebohne" café.

This round is something for running and hiking enthusiasts who are not deterred by moderate climbs that extend over several hundred meters - or maybe even like them. Most of the vertical meters can be mastered on two sections within the first 5 kilometers if you are still fresh. The remaining route contains slight ascents here and there (between kilometers 6 and 7 and between kilometers 11 and 13), but here the blood does not get up by far - unless you sprint up straight.
If you want to take it easy, we recommend the Hillige Seele chapel, the Friedwald Nonnenbusch and the "center" of Hamborn Castle for short breaks.

It was planned to run the half-marathon route of the Wöhler run once. Unfortunately I made a mistake, but it turned out to be a very nice run. Although storms, drought and the bark beetles that followed caused clear cuts here and there, many intact sections of forest are still preserved along the route, which can be enjoyed while running / hiking / mountain biking.

Here is a tip for Wings for Life Runner in the Paderborn area.
The running route is flat (the ascent determined by Komoot is completely exaggerated - it is at most a tenth of it!), You cross few roads, offer many shady sections (mostly important in early May) and are scenic.
You can fully concentrate on running in front of the virtual catcher car and can accelerate for a final spurt without restrictions before it catches up with you.
