Olympiastadion München - Olympic Stadium, Munich, Germany (Copyright © 2016 Anja Zechner /


The Halbmarathon München is held in the Olympiapark, which was built for the Olympic Games 1972 in the northern part of Munich.

Entrants can choose between the 5km fun run (one lap), the 10km race (two laps) or the half marathon (four laps followed by a 1.1km loop).

Starting at the Olympiastadion (Olympic Stadium, pictured above), the route passes many sports facilities as well as the former Olympisches Dorf (Olympic Village, pictured below).

The course is entirely asphalted and traffic-free. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is 10 metres. Each lap features 20 metres of ascent.

Usually, the majority of the participants opt to go for the half marathon as the route is attractive and the time limit to finish the race is a generous three hours.

In 2016, Hirum Wandangi of Kenya (1:05:35) and British athlete Helen Dyke (1:27:49) led almost 700 half marathoners across the line. The 10k had 371 finishers. The 5k fun run drew 85 runners.
