Ras al Khaimah – RAK Half Marathon

You probably have never heard of the Ras al Khaimah aka RAK Half Marathon. Which is a shame, because the RAK Half Marathon is one of the fastest Half Marathons in the world. It currently (2019) is the course of the European Record, set by Swiss runner Julien Wanders in February 2019..

The RAK Half Marathon is very fast and flat, but unfortunately also a bit boring, because it is located in a quite remote area.

One more cool thing: the official RAK Half Marathon race pictures are free for everyone afterwards.

Frankfurt Marathon is the oldest road Marathon in Germany and always takes place at the end of Oktober. (This is actually very nice as it is generally the Sunday when Germany changes from summer to winter time and you get one hour of extra sleep.)

Besides the Marathon the race also offers a relay marathon which is realy popular as well.
