The Dresden Marathon course is completely crossing-free and has a maximum height difference of only twenty meters between the lowest point (start, Ostra-Allee) and the highest point (Tannenstraße, km 5.5).

    This course has a double loop that has some repeat sections on it. There are so many beautiful things to see that sometimes it was hard to focus on running. There were castles, amazing churches, and so many other things on the course. I was there for a marathon exchange program from the US so I had never run overseas before. Comparitively speaking, there wasn’t a lot of swag (you have to buy your own race shirt) but I didn’t care about any of that because the people were amazing and the course more than made up for it. It was a very flat and fast course. I ended up shaving 5 minutes off my PR for my first sub 3 hour marathon. Even if I hadn’t run fast, it would have been worth it for the experience.

    WOW, huge congrats on the sub-3, Jason! Love the idea of a marathon exchange program, I need to learn more about that. I'm guessing the distraction provided by the awesome scenery helped you ignore any discomfort and nail your PR. And maybe selling the race shirt separately is common at German races, since Berlin (another speedy course) was the same way. In any case thanks for your helpful review, and great shot from the podium – look forward to following along on future running adventures! LESS
