The Hella Hamburg Half Marathon is always happening around the beginning of July, and probably the second most well known race in Hamburg after the Hamburg Marathon. Just like the Half Marathon during Hamburg Marathon it features a nice sightseeing route through the picturesque city and covers all the important sights.
Vienna alsways had a special place in my heart. Not only did I run my second Half Marathon there, but I also studied in this beautiful city for 7 years and would call it my second home. So when I was looking for a Marathon to run in May for my 12 Marathons in 12 months project, the Vienna City Marathon was of course on the top of my list. And I can tell you, it did not disappoint.
The Berlin Marathon is well known as the fastest Marathon in the world. (I also ran my fastest time there in 2017). It’s little brother, the Berlin Half Marathon, is less well known. But definitely not slower at all. It is one of the fastest Half Marathons out there. The new course record of 58 minutes 42 seconds is the 4th fastest time worldwide. (as of 2018)
Are you thinking of escaping the cold and maybe running a nice, warm destination Marathon? Search no more, because there is Tel Aviv Marathon. It always takes place on a Friday end of February. Not only do they have a Marathon, but also a Half Marathon, 10km and 5km race. I ran Tel Aviv Marathon in February 2018 as my third Marathon in my 12 Marathon in 12 months project.
