Running in Luxembourg

I am moving to Luxembourg in January 2011 and would like to join a club or generally get involved in 5k 10 k races. I have found some info on the Night Race in June and Route de Vin in September but not much else. Can members in Lux help me out?

I ran the London Marathon this year (44 years old and first time!) and had a fantastic day so I need to get back into the swing of things after a 6 month rest!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

VeeJay is 'yer man. He's half Finnish, Half English, wholly Luxembourgian and he's on these forums. You can find him in the Paris Marathon 2011 thread usually.

Are you an IT contractor by any chance? You don't have to answer that. Good luck with the move.

Not a lot of running clubs in Luxembourg ...there is a Hash Harriers, and a few small marathon groups.  Haven't found a road running club, only ones based at athletic clubs.  Quite a few tri groups though....but I'm pretty slow so haven't got the bravery up to try them

 There are loads of nice trails and tarmac'd paths through the countryside (officially agricultural roads, you see the very occasional tractor). 

 If VeeJay has some ideas, would be good to hear!
