The Hamburg Marathon is Germany's most popular spring marathon running event.
In 2018, approximately 10,000 marathon runners and 1,500 relay teams completed the 42.2km marathon course. The 21.1km half marathon had over 2,700 finishers.
The start and finish lines are situated at the Hamburg Messe (Hamburg Exhibition Centre), with the half marathon starting at 8.30 a.m. and the marathon and relay one our later.
Seen from the air, Hamburg seems to be as flat as a pancake, but the marathon route is not one of the flattest and fastest in our Race Guide. There are no significant climbs or hills to mention but the course profile is rarely completely flat.
However, the crowd support is very good and the route is scenic as it takes in many of Hamburg's best sights — the famous Reeperbahn red-light district, the gigantic port, the Binnenalster and Außenalster lakes, and some exclusive residential areas.
