Half marathon


Experience the full “Munich Marathon feeling” with just half the distance! The half marathon starts in the district of Bogenhausen on Denninger Strasse. The starting time will be moved forward to 1:30 p.m. so that runners who complete the course in 3:00 hours will also be able to finish at their own pace. The course heads south along the original marathon route to the Olympic Park, where the highlight is running through the Marathon Arch into the Olympic Stadium. You did it! G’schafft!
