What is the Haspa Marathon Hamburg like?
The Haspa Marathon Hamburg is one of the most watched and fastest marathon races world-wide. The course record is set at 2:05:30 and is helf by Olympic Champion 2016 Eliud Kipchoge. He set the time in 2013, when he still was a little known distance runner. Hamburg was his marathon debut.
The Haspa Marathon is the oldest popular sporting event in Hamburg and Germany’s largest spring marathon. The course is a out-and-back sightseeing tour of the beautiful hanseatic city. The marathon in Hamburg is also known for the one-of-a-kind crowd support. People cheer you on all along the route and make the race a very special experience.
Why #RunTheBlueLine? The blue course line is painted on the roads every year in April to show the marathon runners the fastest way from start to finish. Hamburg was the first German marathon to start this tradition in 1986. Follow and run the blue line and you can’t get lost for sure!
