Lübeck (Germany), Sunday 19 October 2014
The Lübeck Marathon is held on an undulating out-and-back course between the Hanseatic City of Lübeck and the Baltic seaport of Lübeck-Travemünde.
Last year, approximately 3,000 runners took part in the event which offers a full and a half marathon, a 10km race, a 4.2km run, a 2.1km children's race, and a marathon relay for teams of ten runners.
Starting and finishing on the main square of Lübeck's medieval Old Town, the marathon route runs around the Holstentor (pictured below) and through the historic town centre, and then through residential and green areas to the turning point on Travemünde's beach promenade.
Participants in the marathon and in the half marathon run (in both directions) through the 866-metre-long ‘Herrentunnel’ under the River Trave.
The Holstentor is Lübeck's most famous landmark.
The turning point of the 42.2km marathon is on the beach promenade in Travemünde.
