Entrants can choose between the 5k, the 10k, or the half marathon which consists of two laps (10km+11.1km). Children run one nautical mile (1852 metres). The event also offers a 5k for nordic walkers.
The start/finish area is at the Seebrücke pier of Timmendorfer Strand, one of Germany's most popular beach resorts (pictured).
