In its state press conference today, the City of Hamburg , with regard to the approval or prohibition of major sporting events, did not make any binding statements or adopt any regulations. Particularly against the background of the question of how spectator flows in public spaces can be controlled or limited in order to ensure that distance and hygiene guidelines are also observed off the track, it remains unclear whether and to what extent we as organisers will be held responsible for this. As long as there is no clarity on this issue, we have suspended registration for the Haspa Marathon Hamburg and the Haspa Half Marathon Hamburg on September 13 until further notice. We will keep you informed of further developments and ask you to refrain from enquiries or speculation. For this and for your patience we would like to thank you expressly.
Yours in sport
Your Haspa Marathon Hamburg Team
