35th Haspa Marathon

Marathon along Hamburg's most beautiful sights

The all-time classic among Hamburg's sports events: The 35th Haspa Marathon Hamburg is scheduled for April 25, 2021. Since its first edition in 1986, the participants euphoria has been undiminished. Every year, over 18,000 amateur and world-class athletes take part in the competition in the Hanseatic city.

Up to an impressive 700.00 people regularly cheer on the huge number of runners along the entire course. There is also a lot to see apart from the athletes: The racetrack is basically a ''best of'' route of Hamburg's attractions - starting at the exhibition halls, the runners then pass through the Elbchaussee, giving them a lovely view of the Fischmarkt, and continue past the Landungsbrücken to the HafenCity. From there, they run to the Stadtpark via Jungfernstieg and along the Außenalster.

Next is most northern point of the route in Ohlsdorf, from where, under loud motivational calls, the course leads to the Eppendorfer Baum, where the participants are almost traditionally expected by frenetic supporters. The last section consists of the west bank of the Alster and the district of Rotherbaum. The runners finish with a perfect view of the television tower near the exhibition halls.

Hamburg – Germany's number 1 sports city

Do you prefer to ride a bike rather than run? In addition to the marathon, Hamburg has another sporting highlight in the form of the Cyclassics. And for all those who would like to add a 3.8 kilometer swimming course and a 180 kilometer bike course to their marathon run, the Hamburg Ironman is waiting.
