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 3,100 runners took part in the event. These races are available:


Race distance
Number of finishers 2015
2.1km children's race 103
4.2km 186
10km 512
21.1km half marathon 862
42.2km marathon 376
42.2km marathon relay (10 x 4.2km) 106 teams


All races start on Markt, the main square in the medieval Old Town.

The full marathon takes the runners around the Holstentor (Lübeck's number one landmark, pictured above), through the historic town centre, and then through residential and green areas. The turnaround point is on Travemünde's Strandpromenade (pictured below).

Both the half and the full marathon routes run (in both directions) through the 866m-long Herrentunnel under the River Trave.
