Frankfurt is a no nonsense marathon, it lacks in atmosphere and crowd support until the end, you run into the Messe hall and atmosphere here is very good. The quality of runner is very good, a deep field. Aid stations are plentiful but really get busy and can really trip you up if not careful. Like most European marathons the water comes in cups, really awkward. At 35.5k you pass the finish area and run back into the city, i found this section tough, alot of turns, too many really and difficult on tired legs especially the cobbled sections. Gels are available at stations but i didn’t take them as wasn’t familar with brand. T-shirt is 30 euro extra if you want it.

First time doing Frankfurt and i will be back. The quality of runner is really outstanding, so many sub 3 runners. The course is flat and the weather was excellent on the weekend i attended. You do a few sections a few times which is a slight drawback. Crowd support isn’t the loudest but i think that’s just the German way. The expo in the Messe was excellent, if you can make it on the Friday i would advise as when i went back again on Saturday the crowds were very big. The finish in the Festhalle is the best i have experienced.

Do it

The friendliest marathon and best crowd support I’ve ever encountered and i have done major marathons. The course is what i would call fair. The first half is more difficult than the second especially around the Phoenix park which is open and wind can effect. Good quality of runner, it sells out very quickly, 20,000 sell out and sold out 10 months in advance for 2019.

Yes it’s a pb course but only if you are in the corrals at the front. The water comes in small plastic cups not like Dublin who really have an excellent system. Expo was really crowded and poor, Chicago is a better event.
