Nine Months from today the starting signal in the Karolinerstrasse will send off thousands of runners on their 42,195 km long journey following the blue line. The starting signal will also unleash hundreds of balloons that will rise above the city of Hamburg! Let the unparalleled atmosphere in Hamburg carry you to the finish line on 17 April 2016!

The registration opened a month ago – did you already save your spot? Now is a good time to set your goals for the next spring! There is still lots of time for preparation and training – and you can still benefit from the early bird specials. We want to remind all 2015 participants that you have the chance to sign up for a reduced fee of only €56 until 17 August 2015 (find more information in the newsletter from 17 June). The general entry fees are to rise on 17 September – 7 months prior to the start.  The entry fees will then go up from €65 to €75 for the marathon entry and from €129 to €149 for relay teams. Slots for the marathon relay tend to sell out fast, so don’t wait for too long to register! The final increase of the registration fee in all events will then be 17 December.
