The Öjendorfer See Marathon is held several times per year (in 2013 seven times) in Hamburg-Öjendorf on the eastern edge of Hamburg.

Organized by the ‘100 Marathon Club Deutschland’, the event attracts on average between 100 and 120 participants, some of them highly experienced runners. You may meet athletes who have completed well over one thousand marathons!

The route is a 3,776-metre loop on hard-packed gravel paths around the Öjendorfer See, a very pretty lake surrounded by woods and parkland.

Entrants can choose to run 11.33km (three laps), 22.66km (six laps) or the 42.2km marathon (eleven laps plus 660m in the first lap).

The entry fees are very low — between five and twelve euros. The time limit to complete the course is six hours.
