Very well organised race! Weather conditions were super perfect! Race start was at 8:30pm, which was a bit late as we were already exhausted from a day full of sightseeing. Gdynia is very close to Gdansk and Gdansk is such a beautiful city! The course is very flat which means that it‘s a perfect race to run PBs in case you like to run in the evening. As Gdynia is not a very beautiful city the course is not very scenic but has some nice parts of which the finish line is definitely the best! The finish is a big party with laser show, good music and also big support by the crowd! The medal is one of the most beautiful ones I‘ve ever received and the T-Shirt is also ok!

Nice and flat course along the waterfront and through downtown Baku! Bib pick up is in the Deniz Mall – easy, but no expo at all – you only get your number. Start should have been at 10am. It was very crowded and when I came to the Startblock 20 minutes to 10am I had no chance to get a little closer to the startline. I checked the other runners and was wondering about their running outfit. Most of them didn’t wear proper running clothes. At 9:45am I heard a first countdown and about 5 minutes later the second. I was wondering what the countdowns were for? The guy next to me looked at me and said: you look like you’re running sub 2 hours. I said yes! He then told me that my group had already started. Ok, now I knew that I stood in the middle of the very slow runners and walkers. That really sucked!
You should know: they are talking about 18500 runners taking part in the race, about 13500 runners can be found in the list of results, of which about 7000 did not start (DNS). Of the 6500 runners that started around 4000 runners did not finish (DNF). Around 2500 runners finished the race…
Beside that the race was really good. Some enthusiastic spectators in costumes along the beautiful course. Big party in the finish area with live music acts. Weather conditions were good: sunny with come clouds and quite heavy wind as Baku is a very windy city in general.

A nice event with several distances to choose: 5k / 12k / 21k / 42k. The 42k starts at 8am, all others at 10am which is a bit late as weather was hot and sunny! The expo takes place at Marriott Hotel and is as small and functional as it could be. All the volunteers are very friendly! The race is good at the beginning, a bit boring in between and very challenging at the end as runners have to deal with the traffic and sometimes I didn’t know where to run. Unfortunately Armenians drive like crazy and some of the drivers didn’t take care of the runners. Nice T-Shirt and of course a medal which was the one we should have gotten in October when the race originally should have taken place.

2 laps course around Boulder Reservoir. The course is quite easy with only a little elevation. Weather was perfect. So was organisation. Huge parking space available and easy going pick up of the bibs and also bag drop very easy. Water, Gatorate and gels every 2km (!!!). Except of the part that the race all in all is not one of the most exciting ones, it’s absolutely recommendable! Around 300 runners ran the half marathon. Distances of 5 and 10km were also offered. With a result of 1:53:37 I got 1st in my age group (50-59) which means that it‘s not the fastest running field… 😅 All participants got a nice cotton T-Shirt and all finisher got a very nice medal! 🥇

Berlin Half is spectacular! With almost 40.000 runners it’s one of the biggest half’s in the world. Flat and fast! You meet running friends from all over the world. Top atmosphere! But: go to the expo as early as possible. Saturday afternoon sucks! Long lines everywhere! Weather conditions at the beginning of April can differ a lot. Last year quite cool, but this year very warm with temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius. I ran Berlin 1 day after Prague why I was more than happy with my performance!

Prague Half is one of the 6 Super Halfs. With around 12.000 runners it‘s the smallest of the 6 races. The expo is ok. Normally the shirts of races organised by Czech Run are beautiful, this time unfortunately the shirt was not beautiful at all. The new course of the race leads across the bridges of Prague several times and also across Wenzel Square. The course is a bit challenging as many streets are paved with cobblestone!

Frankfurt Half Marathon is getting better. This year they offered a medal for the first time! With the registration runners could choose a medal and pay an extra amount of 7 Euro. Many runners did so! The course is still the same – a bit boring. Only km 10-12 are good! But the course is flat and as weather conditions were perfect it‘s a good race for PBs.

Napoli Half Marathon is a great race organised by Czeck Run. I love the slogan: All Runners Are Beautiful. Wonderful medal, great Adidas T-Shirt with the slogan on the backside. Nice flat course with only one mentionable uphill part at km 19. I really recommend this race! It was the third time I ran it and it gets better and better!

Cotonou Marathon is a quite new running event taking place in the city of Cotonou, the most important city in Benin 🇧🇯. The organisers aim to become the biggest marathon in Africa. They offer the distances of 42k, 21k, 10k, 5k. As my favourite distance is the half marathon I signed up for the 21k. I was very surprised that I was one of only 32 runners running the half marathon. It was a mix of locals and expats from the US or from Europe living in Cotonou. I was the only runner that extra travelled to Cotonou for the race. Weather conditions were the worst I ever experienced: temperatures around 33-35 degrees and a humidity of 95%. I was completely wet after running a few hundred meters. It‘s absolutely recommendable to take water with you even though water was offered every 3-5km. Start and finish is at the statue de l‘Amazone next to the parliament. Unfortunately finishers of the half marathon did not get a medal. Only finishers of the full marathon (23 runners) got a medal. I have a feedback to the organisers and told them that I am very disappointed as I extra came from Germany. When they heard that they promised me to send a medal to me as they had a few spare medals left. 5 weeks after the race took place I really got a lovely wooden medal! 😍

If you wanna run a half marathon in Africa, go for this one! It’s perfectly organised and the location couldn’t be more beautiful. Hawassa is a lovely place at the lake about 250km south of Addis Abeba. People are extremely friendly and all the local people were standing at the course to cheer for the runners! Weather conditions were absolutely lovely. The altitude of 1700 meters above sealevel is a bit tricky, but still ok. Most of the runners stay at the wonderful Haile Ressort – so did I. It’s an amazing hotel where you can relax and enjoy the stay! Everything takes place at Haile Resort: pick up of the starter kit, pasta party and also a meeting where runners where informed about everything what was good to know, even that there was one heavy uphill part between km 8 and 9. In the morning of the raceday runners were brought to the start by buses at 5am. Start was at 6:30am. The sunrise at the start was the most beautiful I I have ever seen. A crowd of 250 runners from all over the world met at the start and we all had the time of our life! Really one of the best races ever!

Valencia Half Marathon is one of the 6 Super Half Marathons and of course is one of the most popular half marathons in Europe. It sells out every year and runners have to sign up as early as possible to get a spot for this race. Well, I participated in the Half Marathon World Championships in Valencia in 2018 and for the championships they had changed the course so that runners finished at the super iconic City of Sciences where also the finish of the full marathon is. The course of the half ordinary half marathon is a bit disappointing compared to the one I ran in 2018. The start and finish is in the middle of nowhere. The area for the start was very crowded and not very attractive. The course is very flat which is good to run PBs. The weather also was perfect. The atmosphere during the race was good at some spots. All in all I had so much higher expectations of the race. In my opinion they should us the same course as they did for the World Championships in 2018.

The Franklin Meilenlauf takes place in an area outside of the city of Mannheim, where the US-Army was based in former times. The course is quite flat, but the scenery is nothing to talk about. The best part is when runners run through the area of the BUGA (Bundesgartenschau). It´s all easy going and very relaxed!

This race is really a very special one as the city of Karlovy (Karlsbad) is incredibly beautiful and the course of the half marathon is as scenic as a course through a city can be. Like all races by Czech Run the production is very good. Good T-Shirt, nice medal, nice small expo. If you wanna run in Czeck Republic this race is a very good alternative to the popular Prague Half Marathon!

Lisbon Half is a very popular flat and fast race. As part of the SuperHalf Series it‘s a must run race in Europe. The start is spectacular running over the beautiful bridge of 25th April reminding of Golden Gate Bridge. Weather was beautiful with fog clearing right before the start. After crossing the bridge the race becomes quite boring and no spectators along the course. The finish at the beautiful monetary of Belém is great! Water and iso drinks were offered every 2,5km. There were no start waves so the fast runners should be at the start early to line up in the front as slow runners will also do so!

What a lovely race! Start is in Arona. There is a good hotel right at the start where man runners stayed at. It was a sunny but very chilly morning at the Lago Maggiore – perfect conditions for a good race. The half marathon takes runners the first 5k in a loop aeound Arona and then straight all the way at the lake to Stresa where the finish is. The full marathon runners continue to Verbana. The medal was made out of wood – very beautiful! After the race all runners got on a boat for a beauty ride across the lake to Verbana and then back to Arona – perfect!!!! I loved it!

Flat course which unfortunately is quite boring. A few bands along the course. Marathon and half marathon runners start at 9 am while 10k runners start at 10 am which leads to a very congested situation at the finish – getting your bags takes a while. Water, energy drinks as well as gels are offered along the course several times. Nice medal. Best hotel to stay is Best Western Hotel which is very close to start/finish.

Tbilisi Marathon is the biggest running event in beautiful Georgia and offers the distances of 10 and 21k. It’s well organised and everything is easy. There is no expo as it’s a rather small event with around 500 runners for the half marathon distance. The majority of participants runs the 10k. Beautiful medal! Start and finish in downtown! Stay at Wyndham Grand Hotel as it is perfectly located. Only 300 meters away from start/finish line! The course is a 2 laps course! I loved the race!

Cuxhaven Marathon usually takes part at the beginning of April. This year it has been postponed twice due to Covid-19. It finally took part on October 18th and the pandemic concept of the production wich made it possible to get the authorisation was impressive. Marathon and half marathon wich normally start together in the morning were separated into 2 different events which both were limited up to 400 participants. Marathon start was at 9 am and half marathon at 1.30pm. Start was in downtown Cuxhaven (small city of 50.000 people) and the participants were divided into 4 groups of hundred runners each. Every runner had it´s marked point in the starting area with 1,50 meters distance to each other. Every line of 3 runners got its own release! Of course masks had to be worn all time while starting and after finishing. Even the portable toilets were disinfected after every user. The course was a beautiful 2 laps course (half marathon) wich lead runners from downtown to the beautiful seaside and back. Water and other drinks like cola were offered very frequently along the course and in the finish area alcohol free beer was offered. Every finisher got a medal included in a finisher bag with drinks and fruits. T-shirts could be purchased with registration and as the T-Shirts are really beautiful I did so! :-)))

The course contains several slight uphill parts. Drinks (water and iso) and are being offered along the course every 2-3km. At km 11 or 12 even gels were offered. Nice finish area with photo wall! Every runner gets a nice medal, alcohol fee beer and a drinking bottle by sponsor BORG! All in all a perfect half marathon!

First of all: I haven’t heard of Usti nad Labem before. It’s a smaller Czech city close to the German border not far from the city of Dresden which made it easy for me to get there. The city does not have anything to offer for tourists but a perfectly organised half marathon in times of COVID-19!!! The race is organised by RunCzech which are always perfectly organised races. The expo took place outdoor, only the hand out of the race numbers and T-Shirts took place indoor. All runners got a free Adidas T-Shirt as it was the 10th edition of the race. Official race T-Shirts and Singlets could be purchased with the registration. Normally I never choose the option to by a shirt, but as this one was really beautiful I got the singlet which is also by Adidas as Adidas is the official sponsor. The race started at 3pm. As it was a sunny and very warm September day I would have appreciated an earlier start-time. The course is mostly flat with some slight uphill parts and a few bridges to cross. The atmosphere in the city was super, but of course there were also some quite industrial areas to run through. Drinks (water and Gatorade) were offered very frequently (like every 3k). In the finish every runner got a medal and some foods and drinks. Special COVID-19 measures were: all Runners had to wear a mask in the start and finish area, the temperature of all runners entering the start corrals were measured, desinfection gel could be found all over! I really felt safe at all times! Thanks to RunCzech for a perfect race!!!

I´ve never been to Liverpool before and was surprised how beautiful this city is! Absolutely worth a weekend trip to run a half marathon there. The race was the last chance to run this spring as all other races in Europe have been cancelled due to Corona virus. Online registration was possible until Thursday 12pm. British runners get their numbers via mail, overseas runners collect their numbers easily before the race – all well organized. The course is nice and mostly flat. There is just one long and quite steep incline exactly after 1 mile for about 0.6 miles. The rest is flat and takes runners from the waterfront (really amazing) through the city to a huge park and then for the last 4 miles all along the coast. Unfortunately the weather was quite stormy and we had to struggle with heave head winds at the coast. The finish is at the waterfront where the race started. I absolutely loved the atmosphere at the finish zone and appreciated that everything was so easy. Runners put the bags into busses where they picked it up again (not good for valuables as the busses are open for anybody. All runners got a nice medal as well as a Finisher Shirt at the finish line. 3500 runners were registered but due to Corona only 2500 runners started and finished the race.

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.

Seychelles Marathon is a well organised race starting at Beau Vallon on Mahé Island. Runners can choose between the distances 42/21/10/5k. This year 130 half and 70 full marathoners were registered. Race Pick Up took place in Victoria in the office of Seychelles Marathon and it was very personally and warm hearted. The course is extremely tough with elevation about 1000 meters. Scenery is beautiful as the course is all along the coast. As temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius even in the morning and the humidity is extremely high, I would consider it as one of the hardest races I’ve ever run. All runners get a medal and a T-Shirt (different colours for different sizes). The finishers of the half/marathon also get a fresh coconut! 😃

Barcelona Half Marathon is the perfect kick off into the season in Europe. The race always takes place on the second/third Sunday of February and most of the time the weather conditions are almost perfect. That´s why a high number of elite runners come to Barcelona every year. The course is flat and the organization is perfect. And of course Barcelona is a city that´s worth to visit! The expo takes place close to Plaza Espanya which is easily reached by metro. The opening hours are very convenient as it´s open untill 8 pm. We decided to pick up our bibs on Friday and even though the race reached a record number of 23.000 runners the expo was not packed at all. All runners got a T-Shirt for free even though the registration fee is extremely low (around 30 Euro). During the race water and iso drinks are offered every 5km. No gels are offered which was no problem for me as I brought my own gel. The atmosphere along the course is good – there are some nice spots where many people cheer. This year the medal was a bit disappointing, but all in all a fantastic race in a fantastic city!

Gdansk is one of the most beautiful cities I´ve ever visited. Too bad that the course of the popular half marathon (Polumaraton Gdansk) does hit the city at all. Start and finish is at Amber Expo close to the modern and fancy stadium. Unfortunately neither the stadium nor the city is part of the course. Instead the course leads runners along boring streets through the neighborhood of Gdansk. Almost no people are cheering. The good thing about the course is the fact that it´s absolutely flat except of a bridge at km 19. All runners get a nice medal. Even though the event is not too big (ca. 3500 runners for the half marathon) the expo is quite big and well organized as well as the finish area. Massage service is offered for free and all runners can enjoy a warm delicous soup after the race. Weather conditions were perfect. Sunny blue skies and chilly temperatures around 6 degrees Celsius.

New York Marathon is definitively a once in a liftetime must run marathon for every runner. Organization is amazing and the atmosphere along the course spectacular except of a few parts.
Expo is well organized and even though it was very crowded when I visited the expo on Friday at 11 am waiting times were absolutely ok. The start on Staten Island was breath taking with helicopters flying over Verezzano Bridge and fireworks etc. The starter villages (3 different colors) offered coffee, tea, other drinks, bananas, more than enough toilets etc. Even though we took the ferry 4 hours before the start waiting time was not as horrible as I expected – but to be honest: the weather was sunny and not too cold – I would not like to experience all that with rainy weather. Well, the course is tough – everyone knows that. I expected the bridges to be the toughest parts of the race, but in my opinion the hardest part was 5th avenue with a constant slightly uphill elevation almost at the end of the marathon. From my perspective the weakest part of the race was the finish in Central Park. The atmosphere of the finish is quite poor (compared to e.g. Berlin) and after having reached the finish line the second marathon begins: the marathon to get out of Central Park to get your poncho and to meet your friends. It took me almost 45 minutes constant walking!!! Unfortunately this year´s medal i absolutely not my cup of tea. The design of an apple in my opinion is awkward. Well, all in all a fantastic experience, but I will most probably not run NYC again – too expensive, too stressful getting to the start, waiting, etc.

Bari is a very nice and easy going half marathon. Start is in downtown in front of the city hall where runners also get their race packages the day before. The course is super flat – one of the flattest I´ve ever run. It takes runners all along the coast which is quite nice but also a bit boring. At the beginning the markers for every km were not correctly positioned. Atmosphere along the course could have been better, only very few spectators. Finish area was good. All runners got a medal as well as a T-Shirt and of course water, iso-drinks and an apple.

Tirana is a very interesting city and Albania a country that is absolutely worth to visit! The half marathon which is called Tirana Marathon is a 2 lap-course which starts in downtown on the main square in front of the opera house. The course take runners through downtown and leads to a lake. Most of the course is along the lake which is quite nice as you don´t have to run on the street.

Sarajevo Half Marathon is a well organized race in the capital of Bosnia. The expo is small but nice with snacks and drinks for free. Runners are invited to stay a while and chat together in a runners lounge and get connected. Every runner gets a very beautiful backpack (the best one I have ever received so far) with some goodies and a very nice T-Shirt. This year´s color was orange, but other colors were available for 10 Euro (red, green, yellow, blue and black = colors of the olympic rings). The race started on Sunday at 9am in downtown in front of Swissotel. The course was described as flat and fast but has 2 quite tough uphill parts. Runners were given water very frequently and in the second part of the race even oranges and gels were offered. In the finish area different kinds of drinks (water, iso, alcfree beer) were offered as well as bananas! Best of all: the medal is really BEAUTIFUL!
What really has to be improved: the position of the km markers – the markers were totally confusing…

The 10th edition of Asuncion Marathon was a nice event that unfortunately suffered from heavy wind. The course starts at Costanera which is the coastline of Asuncion. We head strong headwind for the first 7k and again at the end. In the middle part when you run from the coastline to downtown the course has a 3k uphill part. There are many water stations along the course, but no isotonic drinks or gels. The atmosphere along the course was quite poor as there were no spectators. The city is not beautiful at all, but offers some museums. The distribution of the race packages took place in a modern shopping mall. All runners received a nice T-Shirt, a quite nice medal and some other stuff like a drinking bottle and soap 🙂 If you ever plan on running Asuncion Marathon Asuncion Rent Suites is a perfect place to stay as it’s right at start and finish of the race and a really good place to stay!

Rio Half Marathon is amazing! The course is as beautiful as a course can be! Start is at famous Ipanema Beach! From there the course takes runners to Copacabana before the course turns left towards Botafogo and Flamengo from where you have spectacular views of sugarloaf. Runners pass by the marina of Rio, hit downtown before the course turns back to Flamengo where the half marathon comes to an end! In the finish zone you’ve got a perfect view of sugar loaf for a perfect medal picture! Weather conditions were hot this year, but should normally be a bit better. It was the hottest day of the week – bad luck! But it was sunny! The expo is well organised and quite big! As the race is very popular and many participants take part in the race waiting time at the numbers pick up is quite long. Try to be there as early as you can! In the race package you find gel and bars! A nice T-Shirt could be ordered for a good price
with the registration! All in all a MUST-RUN-RACE! And last, but not least: I’ve never seen so many photographers taking pictures of the runners! I can’t wait to see all the pictures!

SF Marathon is a wonderful race with a very scenic but also quite challenging course. After I had run the first half and the second half the years before I finally ran the full marathon this year. For the first time it was beautiful weather and the Golden Gate Bridge was clearly visible. The views of the bridge were spectacular while the sun was rising! Of course the course is quite hilly but fortunately the first half is the tougher part. The expo is super and offers a lot to see and to buy. The medal is very big very kitschy but awesome with a movable cable car. All in all it was an amazing and very well organised race!

This year weather conditions were very tough as it was sunny and super hot with temperatures in the mid-nineties which is absolutely not normal for Hamburg. Because of the weather only 8400 runners started of which only 8000 finished. Because of the 25th anniversary runners got a nice backpack! I love this race and I have already signed up for Hamburg Half 2020!
