Predict your time on the Haspa Marathon Hamburg Predictathon Segment and win our grand #predictathon prize.

We had a close look at the stretch between Fernsicht / Eichenpark – where the halfmarathon course meets the marathon course again – and the Dammtor train station: 2.4km along the Aussenalster, only 7m of elevation gain, right after you passed the marathon wall. A segment that will take your straight back home to the finish line.

The magic about our #predictathon: literally everyone can win. The grand prize goes to the runner who can predict his/her time for the segment best. Will it take you 10:38min or 18:30min? Just make sure you nail you predicted time and you’re in for the win.

Our grand prize, the “Run the Blue Line Package” includes 2 free entries into next years race 2 nights stay in a Double room and a surprise and delight product package from our partner sponsors.

But also the second and third placed players can look forward to great prizes.
