This time has been my 2nd participation after 2015. I like San Jose Marathon, but it is a quite tough course with long uphill parts. The distribution of the bib numbers incl. a T-Shirt has been improved and I really got my number without any waiting time at the stadium. There was even a small expo with Shirts and other stuff to buy. The race started at 6 am the next day. Start is in front of the stadium and runners can choose to run 42/21/10 km. They all start at the same time. The course takes you first into downtown which is quite nice even though San Jose is not a beautiful city at all. Half marathoners have to turn back right after they have passed the National theatre and this time the point to turn was clearly marked (last time there were no signs and I did not know where to turn). Water was available along the course VERY frequently. The second part of the course is tougher than the first part and it´s definitively no personal best course. There were 2 points where they should have put signs for the runners to know which direction. Finish is in the stadium which is wonderful as the stadium is a brand new modern one – I was told that it was a “gift” of China. After the race there was the possibility of taking pictures in front of a poster. Runners got fruits and drinks and of course a medal! All in all a nice race!

Maraton Internacional de Panama is a very well organized marathon race. Runners have the choice between the full and the half marathon. The expo takes place in a hotel in downtown which is easily to find. Very unspectacular in a small room you get your bib and a quite nice T-shirt. The full marathon starts at 4.30 am which makes sense as Panama City is hot and humid like hell. The half marathon starts at 6 am although the internet page said 6.40 am. Fortunately the lady at the expo told me to be on time as the race would start at 6 am. Start and finish takes place on a parking space in front of Intercontinental and Le Meridien Hotel on famous Balboa Avenue which makes it VERY easy if you´re staying in one of these hotels. The course is quite nice with several uphill parts and give runners a good impression of the city of Panama. Very nice medal at the finish and good atmosphere. Cold water is provided very frequently and believe me: you need it – not only to drink it but also to pour it over you and cool you down. I can highly recommend this race if you´re fine with hot and humid conditions (talking about 30-35 degrees celsius and 90-100% humidity).

Anyone who has already been to Cuba might know that Cuba is very special and so is the Marathon.

The expo took place in a first class hotel at the Malecon around 5-6 km out of the city. Every runner got a T-Shirt and a base cap together with the bib. Some cubans tried to sell other T-Shirts or Singlets illegally and I was very happy to get a very special Cuban Singlet in a dark corner of the hotel.
Start of the race was at 7 am the next morning. All races (5/10/21/42) started at the same time which means that it was a huge crowd which was not organized in corrals. Even people who not even wanted to run stepped into the starting area to be with their beloved ones till the race began. The first km was quite hard running zick zack all the time, but then it got better. The best part of the race was km 2-6 when we ran along the Malecon. The light was awesome and fishermen stood along the way doing their job early in the morning. The rest of the race was quite boring with a few uphill parts. It got more interesting again at the end when we passed by Revolution Square, ran through an amazing beautifl street of downtown before finishing at the famous Capitol. Water was provided very frequently but unfortunately the bottles where very hard to open. There was almost no crowd at the course. The worst part of the race was the finish: the finisher of the half marathon and runners of the full marathon were not divided into 2 lanes – I just thought “poor 42k runners” who had to find their way through the crowd. I could not find any drinks in the finish and as they ran out of medals I did not get a medal – I finished among the first 30 % of all half marathon runners…. It was very frustrating and as I was thirsty I was happy to leave the finish area immediately.

Ok, where should I start? Let´s begin with the expo. We arrived at the expo on Saturday in the morning at about 11 o clock. There was a huge line in front of the entrance and we had to wait quite a while before we got in. Once we got in I liked the expo even though it was very narrow and crowded. They have good merchandise stuff and I even bought a super nice T-Shirt as a souvenir. The race took place on Sunday and the half marathon starts at 1.30pm (marathon starts at 9.30 am). The start is close to the expo but far away from downtown. It takes you about 30 minutes by metro to get there. It was very crowded and unfortunately there were too little toilets for too many runners which really stressed me. I could manage to jump out of the toilet and immediately start my race on time. As there were so many runners I had to run “zick zack” all the time. The streets were too narrow and this fact caused me trouble during the whole race! In my opinion there were also too little water stations. It was a sunny and quite warm day (around 20-25 degrees Celsius) and at the beginning there were water stations every 5km only. It got better in the second half of the race and also gel was provided. Unfortunately the stations were only on one side of the street and were so crowded that I could not always manage to grab a cup of water. The scenery was VERY poor. Amsterdam is such a beautiful city – one of my favorite cities in the world – but the race has absolutely nothing to do with Amsterdam as it takes place outside of downtown. I only liked the last part of the race and of course finishing in the Olympic Stadium was nice. The course is flat with only few smaller climbs. Unfortunately only few spectators along the course – not comparable with Eindhoven or Venlo – races that are so much better than Amsterdam in terms of the atmosphere. After finishing in the stadium the biggest disappointment was still waiting for me: there were absolutely NO drinks offered at the finish. Runners had to exit the stadium as drinks were only offered outside the stadium. Because of this you could not enjoy the atmosphere in the stadium for at least a few minutes. As the exit was just a little narrow door and thousands of runners wanted to get out to finally get some water it took us a long time. We had to wait such a long time before we got out of the stadium and once we got out we had to wait another time, stand in line for several minutes before we finally got our water – I have never experienced such a bad organization at the finish. Will definitively not run this race again! But I will definitively come back to lovely Amsterdam!!!

Chicago Marathon is really TOP of the TOPS! After having run Berlin Marathon 2 weeks ago which was also awesome I have to admit that Chicago beats Berlin by a little. First of all I fell in love with the expo which is huge and perfectly organized. No waiting at all and many possibilities to take pictures in front of huge photo-walls. The race was also perfectly organized. Water and energy drinks every 2 or 3 km and gels along the route. All volunteers were so friendly and cheering like hell! The atmosphere was the best I´ve ever experienced, spectators all along the 42,2km – Berlin is good, but Chicago is better! The only things which I have to criticize is the number of toilets before the start and that the finish is not that emotional, but ok – finishing in Berlin running through Brandenburg Gate is unbeatable.

Ok, Aschaffenburg half marathon is a quite small event. Round about 500 runners took part. First of all: there is no start line measuring the time which means that there is no net-time. I was lucky that I started from the top. The course takes you from the sport arena which is located 2-3 km outside the city to downtown where you have to run 6 laps of about 3,1km which is quite boring. The finish is at the beautiful castle of Aschaffenburg which is by the way a small city in the northern part of Bavaria about 50 km east of Frankfurt. Unfortunately runners do not get a medal. Along the course there is one water station which also offers Cola. As it´s a 6 lap course you pass by the station 6 times and the volunteers know what you want after you have passed for the 3rd time! All runners do get a T-Shirt which I will definitively never wear as it´s really ugly. The best was the buffet of cakes in the arena 😀

Berlin Marathon is just awesome. Fantastic course through downtown Berlin passing by most of the touristic highlights. Runners also get a good impression of the variety of the city as the course takes them through different districts like Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Charlottenburg. The expo is huge and offers a lot. Race packet was very easy and efficient. Start is close to Brandenburg Gate and even though there are around 40.000 runners I had the feeling that everything was quite relaxed as it was very well organized. The atmosphere was fantastic and even though weather was quite bad (light drizzle) there were so many spectators cheering for the runners all along the course. The best moment was when runners turn to the left at km 41,5 and see the Brandenburg Gate again. Everyone was crying and got so emotional while running the last some hundred meters, through the Brandenburg Gate to the finish! Unforgettable!!! Super nice finish area in front of the Reichstag building. I can really really recommend Berlin Marathon for all marathon runners!

P.S.: no finisher shirts for free, but entry fees are extremely cheap compared to all other major marathons that you can buy 2 or 3 finisher shirts on the expo and still don´t spend more money as for example for Chicago or New York.

Copenhagen Half Marathon 2017 was different. We started with bright sunshine and perfect weather conditions, but weather changed while running through the streets of beautiful Copenhagen. A huge thunderstorm came up and flooded the streets with hail. The race had to be discontinued after 2 hours and a bit. Lucky who was fast enough to finish in time! I ran the race before and it´s really a nice race, especially the finish area which is a huge park is very nice to relax after the race. This time the park was flooded too, so no relaxing after the race…

Kelowna Wine Country Half is a sympathic half marathon in the wine region in British Colombia. Early in the morning buses take the runners from downtown Kelowna to the wineyards outside of the city. The race starts at 7 am at a winery and the course takes the runners first up and down through the beautiful area. From km 9 to 13 runners have to run heavily downhill until they reach Kelowna again. The race ends at the waterpark. All in all a lovely race. The expo at the Delta Grand Hotel is small but nice. Everything is easy going. Runners get a cotton T-Shirt as well as a huge medal and a wine glass. Many barrs provided at the finish! Weather conditions were perfect. Sunny warm day, but not too warm as start is early in the morning.

Hunrück Marathon is a well organized race about 100 km west of Frankfurt in the Hunsrück area. It´s a point to point race. Runners are taken to the starting point by busses. You can choose between the full and the half marathon distance. The first 8 km take you through typical German villages – nothing spectacular, some industrial areas. Then the beautiful and from km 9 on the downhill part begins. Absolutely lovely! The finish in the city of Simmern is awesome! Very well organized! Finishers get a medal!

It was the first edition of Jönköping Marathon/Half Marathon. Jönköping is a Swedish city 1,5 hrs east of Gothenburg and as all the races in Sweden the race in Jönköping was perfectly organized. The course is flat with a few hilly passages. It´s not very scenic, but from time to time the atmosphere is quite good. The finish on the bridge is awesome and the swag you get is amazing. Every runner gets a very nice medal, many drinks such as iso or alcohol free Carlsberg beer, a huge bag full of yogurt, a plastic drinking bottle etc. The best is that every runner has got the choice between a white or a black finisher shirt – and it´s a really nice one without any sponsors on it!

Ermstal Marathon is a perfect event to combine with a shopping weekend in Metzingen Outlet-City! Shopping on Saturday and running on Sunday. The race is well organized and everything is easy going! Start is at Metzingen Kelterplatz which is in downtown. There are some guest houses very close to the start. The course takes you through the fields of the hilly and beautiful area in the south west of Germany. Unfortunately you run 10,5 km into one direction and then all the way back. Drinks (water and iso) as well as sponges are offered almost all the time! Big but not beautiful medal for all finishers as well as a T-Shirt.

Wiesbaden marathon is a very heavy trail with around 700 meters of elevation. The course starts at about 500 meters above sea level and first takes the runners downhill to run it all up in the 2nd part of the race. In terms of drinks, gels and food the best supply I have ever experienced! Apples, oranges, bananas, energy bars, gels and water or iso-drinks are provides every 2,5km. You even get cakes and of course beer at the finish. Unfortunately runners do not get a finisher medal.

Marburg Night Marathon is a wonderful race that takes place on a friday evening. Start is at 7pm which mean that it´s a perfect way to start the weekend. Runners can easily pick up the bib numbers up to 30 minutes before the start at the stadium where the race finish. From there runners have to walk about 15 minutes up to the market square of the old town where the start takes place. The market square provides a start of the race in a fantastic atmosphere as it is surrounded by historic buildings. The course takes runners first down the hill for about 1 km, then through downtown before runners start to run at the river Lahn. The atmosphere on a beautiful summer evening is fantastic as many people (most of them students) are enjoying the weather at the river. Finish is at the stadium where you can relax and enjoy drinks and cookies after the race.

Well, Hamburg Half Marathon is in my opinion one of the best ones in Germany and Europe. The course has been changed this year due to the high amount of runners. More than 10.000 runners were registered. Start is still at Reeperbahn, the huge boulevard in the world famous red light district of Hamburg, but instead of running 2 laps of 5 km runners now run 5 km to the west and then turn and run the beautiful Elbchaussee passing by huge villas at the river Elbe. Between km 9 and 11 you pass by Landungsbrücken (at the harbour) and the beautiful Elbphilharmonie before getting closer to the main station and the river Alster. It´s a mostly flat course and good for pb. The atmosphere is fantastic! Come and run in the most beautiful city of Germany!

Everything is easy going at the Eschathlon in Eschborn which is a small city very close to Frankfurt. You can easily get your race package in the morning before the race starts. In the bag you will find a T-Shirt and some other stuff like a water bottle etc. The course consists of 2 laps which are a mixture of running through the green fields and running through the neighborhood of Eschborn. All in all a nice race.

Oh, what a surprise! Potsdam Half Marathon is such a beautiful race. Shuttle busses take runners from Hauptbahnhof to the start. It´s perfectly organized. You can get your race package in the morning before the start so that you can easily go to Potsdam from Berlin in the morning. There is a nice expo with good offers and everything is easy going. The course is breathtaking beautiful with the highlight of running through the park of Sanssouci passing by the new palais. The finish is in the stadium and there is a nice barbacue going on after the race. I can highly recommend that beautiful half marathon! One advise: fast runners should really start in the front as it gets narrow at the beginning!

It was sunny again and it´s always fun to run in Helsinki if the sun is shining. You get your bib number at the shopping mall Forum which is very easy.

In the finish area runners get many different things for free: water, iso-drinks, gels etc. I even got a nice hat!

Winterthur Marathon was a very well organized and sympathetic race. You could choose between 10k, half, or full marathon. Full marathon start was at 9.00, relay at 9.15 and half at 9.30 am. The 10 k started later around 12.30. Winterthur is a small city in Switzerland very close to Zurich and even closer to Zurich airport which made it possible that I could take the early flight from Frankfurt to Zurich in the morning and then take the train to Winterthur which only takes 15 minutes. Another 15 minutes walk from the train station to the start which is at an old riding hall. Everything is extremely easy and comfortable. I got my start number within a minute, could leave my bag in the riding hall, special care for valuables, I even got my medal before I ran the race – that´s because runners could decide wether they wanna have a medal or not and they had to pay extra for the medal. Start was on time and weather was beautiful, but too warm. The course is nothing special to talk about. It´s mostly out of the city in the forests – quite beautiful. The first 15k are almost flat, but after 15k it goes uphill before it goes downhill towards the finish! All in all it´s a nice race and perfect for a “quickie”.

The race takes place in Brufut which is close to Banjul, the capital of The Gambia. It was extremely hot with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius. Organization was very poor and just 21 runners took part in the race of which 19 were Gambian top runners. No electronic time measuring. The course should have been 21.1km but it was something around 19.5km. Streets were not closed for traffic. No water or anything else till km 12!!! I was dying due to the heat and of course I was running on my own as the top runners were all gone after 100 meters. While running you get an impression of the Gambian way of life seeing cows passing the way, busy markets etc.

Aqualine Half Marathon in Chiba has been my all time favorite race so far! The atmosphere is just incredible! It takes place in the small city of Kisarazu which belongs to the Chiba area which is just next to Tokyo. You can easily go by metro to the start. Very interesting expo – it´s like a food festival and you could have a hot soup with interesting add ons just before running if you like! The course is quite flat except of the huge Aqualine Bridge from which you have an amazing view to Tokyo and Haneda Airport. The atmosphere along the course is incredible. It seems like everyone comes to cheer the runners – school classes, old people – just anyone! It was so much fun running Chiba Aqualine Marathon! The wooden medal is awesome and the festival in the finish area as well! If you ever have the chance to run that race, do it!

Runners get the bib numbers in a supermarket just next to the start. The atmosphere is great with live music. Of course the race is a happening in the small town of Nuuk where not much is happening. The course is very scenic as it goes up and down all the way to the airport. At the end it takes runners through the old part of Nuuk with all the colorful houses – awesome!

I have almost no words for what I experienced spending one week in Uganda running the Uganda Marathon! The race is organized by a British organization in order to help people in Uganda. Runners from all over the world but mostly from the UK meet in Uganda to help by fundraising money for different projects. All the runners stay at a camp close to the city of Masaka. The scenery is just wonderful and the spirit in the camp is gorgeous. The Marathon is a course of 2 laps and it´s absolutely amazing and VERY tough. The support of the locals is incredible. Many of them run the 10k, some of them run the half or even the full. Most of the international runners run the full marathon and everyone supports everyone. We all waited in the finish even for the slowest one. The Uganda Marathon is a very special race and I can highly recommend it. The reward is a handmade wooden medal and the love of all the people from Uganda. Runners could add a pre-race or post-race tour to see more of the country. I did a pre-race tour to see Queen Elizabeth National park (lots of elephants) and of course the Volcano National Park to see the Gorillas! A M A Z I N G!!!!

First time ever that I visited the country of Moldova. I really enjoyed running in Chisinau which is the capital of Moldova. The organization of the race was very good. Start and finish is in downtown and everything was very easy. As I arrived very late in the evening before the race I got my race package in the morning of the race. The start of the race was delayed by 15 minutes for any reason. They had already counted from 10 to 4, but then had to stop the countdown and wait another 15 minutes before we could start – that was a little irritating. Once we were on route I really enjoyed the race which is a 2 lap course through downtown of Chisinau. As runners have to pass by the start/finish area twice I could enjoy the super spirit of the race several times. The weather was perfect – clear blue skies and temperatures around 20 degrees. Quite big medal and a nice T-Shirt for every runner.

The atmosphere at the start is really nice as the race seems to mean a lot to the people. The start was a little bit delayed. The course was absolutely flat and while running we could get a good impression of the neighborhoods of Maadi. Unfortunately the streets were not closed for traffic which was a little bit dangerous in some situations. The other minus was that the course had obviously not been measured correctly. I had the impressions that it was round about 500 m to short.

For all foreign runners: this race is an absolutely must! The very flat and fast course is the best sightseeing course I´ve ever run as you pass by many attractions. The atmosphere is fantastic as most of the course many spectators cheer for the runners. One advise: be at the start at time as due to the 30.000 runners it comes to some lines from time to time. And if you have the chance to get your race package on friday or on saturday late afternoon or evening you won´t have lines there. But if you get your stuff saturday between 12 and 4 pm it can be very crowded at the expo.

I love everything of this race. Taking the metro to Central Park early in the morning. Sunrise in Central Park before the start. First 10 km through Central Park, then running 7th Avenue and crossing Times Square – fantastic atmosphere. Last part of the race all the way down to Financial District! Fabulous Race!!!

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.

Paris Semi-Marathon is a fast and flat race through the eastern part of the city. The course is quite nice and the race is very well organized. If you haven´t started the spring season in February this early March race is a good race to kick off!

Nice and well organized half marathon through downtown of Tel Aviv. Start and finish is outside of the city and it´s hard to get there as many streets are closed and no taxi can bring you there. Take a bike! Very nice T-Shirts!

Mörfelden Half Marathon is a small event with some 300 runners. It´s perfect if you are looking for a winter race in the Frankfurt area. The course is a 2 lap course through the forest – very beautiful. The organization is very professional, but unfortunately no medal!
