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. Every runner gets a T-Shirt with no sponsors on – I love it! The course is beautiful with some uphill parts. In the finish area runners get many different things for free: water, iso-drinks, gels etc. I even got a nice hat!

Torshavn Marathon is such a wonderful race. The course is awesome and the whole atmosphere is just fantastic. Runners either run a full or a half marathon. Start and finish is at downtown Torshavn which is the capital city of Faroe Islands. It´s very small and cosy. I really loved the race even though the course is very tough with many uphill parts.

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.

Venloop was my 2nd race in the Netherlands and I really can recommend running a Dutch race. It´s always like a huge party. The starts in the afternoon and the whole city seems to be captured by the race. Start and finish is in the centre of historic Venlo which is really small, but beautiful. The atmosphere is fantastic, but even in the neighborhoods it is great as really everybody seems to be cheering for the runners.

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!

Well, running in Greenland is fantastic – no matter what race! The scenery is awesome and during summer the weather conditions are perfect almost every day. Nuuk Marathon is a race in the capital of Greenland starting in downtown. The city of course is not very big so everything is easy going. There is no expo. 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 liked Dublin Rock´n Roll Half Marathon. The course takes you from the docklands in the east to the huge park in the west of the city and the atmosphere is quite good. Right after finishing the half marathon runners have the possibility to run a fun race of about 2,5 k.

San Francisco Marathon is very tough. You can choose to run either the first or the second half. The first half crosses the Golden Gate Bridge why I did that one. It´s very tough as there are plenty of uphill parts. Start is early in the morning at 5am. Weather conditions were good, but a bit misty. It starts smooth and gets hard when you reach the bridge. I love the long sleeve shirt and the medal!

Marburg is a small and beautiful city not too far away north of Frankfurt. As it has a big university it´s packed with students who either take part in the race or have a barbecue at the river Lahn and watch the runners. That´s why the atmosphere of the race is very unique. The race starts at 7pm in the historic center of the city and the course is very scenic and beautiful. The finish is at the stadium. Really beautiful race!

Vine tasting along the route is possible and most of the runners do drink a lot!

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!!!!

The moment when runners came back into the stadium was magic.

Zurich marathon is absolutely flat which means good for PB! It starts at the lake and takes the runners to downtown first. Then you have to run all along the lake Zurich which is a little bit boring.

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.

Cairo Half Marathon is a race that is organized by the team of Cairo Runners and the really do it with passion. The race takes place in Maadi which is a nice area south of downtown. 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.

Vienna is an awesome city and the Vienna City Marathon is a nice event. Due to the huge number of runners they should definitively check who is starting out of which coral. Even though we started from coral 2 we had so many slow runners in front of us as there was no one controlling who was entering which coral. Apart from that the race was nice passing by some sights of the city.

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.

After the finish there is a breakfast party at the pool of the Interconti Hotel.

Kigali Peace Marathon is a very nice event. Considering that you´re in Rwanda it was all very well organized! Unfortunately it was quite a challenge to get to the stadium where the marathon started as most of the streets were closed. As I was running out of time I decided to get out of the car and run to the start which meant that I had a 3-4 k run before I started the half marathon. The race started almost on time and a few hundreds runners began to run the streets of Kigali which are VERY hilly. Due to the fact that Kigali is on ca. 1700 meters altitude it even gets harder. The finish is in the stadium again. Unfortunately no medal, but a certificate and a nice T-Shirt.

Bangkok Marathon starts at 4 am in the morning! That´s tough and I really did not know which strategy would be the best. I decided to go to bed very early and got up at 2 am in the morning, tried to eat at least a sandwich even though I was not hungry at all. At the start it was amazing to see how many people got up that early in order to run a marathon in the middle of the night. Start was close to the Grand Palace. The course is flat and quite easy, but be prepared to pass by some areas with ugly smells (fish). Unfortunately the course was not measured correctly. The half marathon was about 1 k less that it should have been. Beautiful sunrise after the finish!

The race is completely flat and offers beautiful views of the cozy Icelandic capital.

Polar Night Half Marathon in Tromsö is very special. At the beginning of January it´s dark almost 24 hours a day. The atmosphere at the start and finish is very unique – all runners are wearing a yellow vest and candles are lightening the way. The whole course is covered with snow. In 2013 we were quite lucky as it was quite mild with temperatures around freezing point.
