    Frankfurt Half Marathon is still not one of my favorite races, but this year´s race was better than expected. The course has been changed in terms of the direction which leads to the result that the harder part is at the beginning instead of at the end. Also the atmosphere is better. The course is flat and as weather conditions were almost perfect (cloudy and 10 degrees celsius with a little headwind from km 11-15) it was good for running pbs. Finishing in the huge soccer stadium was amazing. Unfortunately runners still don´t get a medal even though it´s one of the biggest half marathon events in Germany with 8500 registered runners.

    Frankfurt Half Marathon has become quite popular. It´s the half marathon with the highest number of fast runners in Germany and more than 6000 participants take part in the race. The start is at the football stadium which is offers fantastic facilities for such an event. A huge buffet of cakes and sandwiches is offered to all runners (not for free). The course takes runners from the stadium to the river Main which is more or less in downtown and then back to the stadium. There is not a lot to see and the atmosphere is quite boring as only few people are cheering. At the beginning the course is very flat, but at the end it becomes a bit hilly which makes the second half of the race a bit harder. Unfortunately runners do not get a medal in the finish, but all runners get a certificate to download.

    6,000 runners but no medals and food you have to pay for? Sounds like European runners have different expectations than their American counterparts... such a shame, since it's so much… MORE

    6,000 runners but no medals and food you have to pay for? Sounds like European runners have different expectations than their American counterparts... such a shame, since it's so much easier to hang a medal than frame a certificate. Or maybe you're just spoiled now on New York? ;) In any case, congrats on another successful race Jens, and always appreciate the insights! LESS

    The Frankfurt Half Marathon is well organized by the local runners club Spiridon. Start is at the huge stadium called Commerzbank Arena. The atmosphere at the start is good. Unfortunately the course is not that beautiful except of the part at the river Main. The finish is in the stadium but it was sad that all runners had to leave the stadium immediately after crossing the finish line. All runners get a certificate, but no medal.
