Whoever has competed in one of the 33 editions of Generali MUNICH MARATHON knows that tingling sensation. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible; only subsiding when the starter’s pistol finally sounds and your sightseeing tour through Munich starts right away: Olympic Park, English Garden, Bogenhausen art nouveau villas, Isar Bridge, “Gärtnerplatz”, “Sendlinger Straße”, “Marienplatz”, the Town Hall, Bavarian State Opera, "Residenz", "Pinakotheken", Odeonsplatz, Theatinerchurch, “Königsplatz”, “Siegestor”, Leopoldstraße and many more. Countless highlights seem to line up right next to each other before the Olympic Stadium comes within sight. Goose bumps are not to be hold back at the big marathon gate where runners are rewarded with mist, music and colorful lighting. On the last 300 metres and accompanied by the cheers of the crowd, they turn into the home stretch of the Olympic Stadium. “G’schafft” (transl: I made it), as the Bavarians say! And afterwards? Smile please! Everyone’s a winner!
