Half marathon

Half the distance and still full speed

It couldn’t be a better start, as the race begins with a lot of Munich feeling and Bavarian flair, at the Chinese Tower. The start is at 01:30 p.m., so that even runners with a finishing time of 3:00 hours can easily finish the distance.

The running course is the second part of the original marathon route, through the east of Munich past famous landmarks of Munich city centre and with the big finish: the Olympic Stadium.

Smoke, music and the cheering crowds – the finish and the last 300 metres on the stadium circuit are simply unforgettable! And then, with a clear conscience and a big smile on your face, you say: G’schafft!
