By Allgemein @en

The main competition – Marathon – of the Haspa Marathon Hamburg has recorded just under 11,000 registrations (5% more than in the same period of the previous year) and is thus on the verge of changing to the last price level.
The last 100 starting places in the price category – €90 per starting place – are currently on offer. Those who decide on the spur of the moment should hurry up. When the 11,000 mark is reached, the entry fee increases by 8,-€.

In addition, we also set another impressive record. For Das Zehntel, the children and youth run as part of the Haspa Marathon Hamburg weekend, more than 2,500 entries were received on the first day of registration (15 January). With 10,000 starting places, what is now the largest youth run in Germany was already fully booked last year and, given current developments, is expected to be so again. Three runs – two for primary schools and one for secondary schools – are on the agenda for the competition on Saturday, 18 April. The course will run in the proven manner over 4.2 kilometres around Hamburg Messe and through the nearby park Planten un Blomen.

Haspa Marathon Hamburg takes 1st place in quality study

By Allgemein @en

On our own behalf: The British online platform recently carried out a study of 476 marathon events worldwide that were certified by the World Marathon Association and evaluated on the basis of various criteria.

Categories were among other things organizational factors such as starting fees, infrastructure (catering, number and locations of WCs, medical security, hotel availability etc.), in addition, external factors such as weather conditions, air quality, temperature, elevation or distance profile.

Events were already excluded from the analysis if no data was available for more than one evaluation category. The remaining 81 marathon events are listed in a ranking after evaluation.

The Haspa Marathon Hamburg took 1st place in this ranking.

Haspa Marathon Hamburg gets World Athletic Gold Label

By Allgemein @en

The Haspa Marathon Hamburg has just become official holder of the World Athletics Gold Label Road Races. With the newly designed seal of quality, the World Athletics Federation (formerly IAAF) honours, among other things, the increased support of marathon and road races organisers in its anti-doping programme.
“The World Athletics Gold Label is, on the one hand, an expression of the appreciation of our event, but above all it is a visible and important sign that there must be no room in the world of sport for illicit means of improving performance. In this respect, I am doubly pleased about this award”, explains Frank Thaleiser, head organizer of the Haspa Marathon Hamburg.

The World Athletics Label Road Races comprises four quality levels – bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Their award is based on strict quality criteria with regard to event organisation and media coverage. On the other hand, it is based on the number of anti-doping controls carried out by elite athletes within the framework of the organisers´ own events as well as their financial participation in anti-doping measures outside competitions.
