The Spreewald Marathon in Germany is a family-friendly amateur sport event for runners, walkers, hikers, cyclists, inline skaters, longboarders, paddlers and standup paddlers.

It is held annually over a weekend in the spring in the Spreewald, a vast wetland area criss-crossed by numerous brooks and canals.

Located in the state of Brandenburg, approximately 100 kilometres from Berlin, the ‘Spree Forest’ has been protected as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 1991.

The event features two venues—the town of Lübbenau and the village of Burg.

There is a variety of races for runners to choose from:

  • on Friday in Lübbenau:
    • 400m kids run
    • 5km night run
  • on Saturday in Burg:
    • 5km night run
  • on Sunday in Burg:
    • 400m kids run
    • 2km run
    • 10km run
    • 21.1km half marathon
    • 42.2km marathon

All routes are flat and very scenic. The marathon and the half marathon are run mainly on asphalt.
