Elevation profile Haspa Marathon Hamburg

The HASPA MARATHON HAMBURG is a sightseeing tour through the city including all of Hamburg’s highlights. It is for that reason that we did not straighten out every turn or tried to cut out any “climbs”. Hamburg is fast (2:05:30), Hamburg is worth seeing and Hamburg inspires. Run the blue line!

The course highlights

  • Start on the Glacischaussee – at the “Heiligengeistfeld”, known for the fun fair “Hamburger Dom”.
  • Reeperbahn – you will run along Hamburg’s sinful mile towards Altona.
  • Elbchaussee: following the western turning point in Othmarschen, the noble Elbchaussee leads you back towards the Harbour, the Gateway to the World.
  • Along the patriarchal St. Pauli landing stage, the modern Harbour City with the Elbe Philharmonic Hall comes into sight.
  • After traversing the Wallring tunnel, you will be “sent” along the Jungfernstieg on the Inner Alster through the heart of the Hanseatic city.
  • Along the exclusive east bank of the Outer Alster you will move towards the Stadtpark – Hamburg´s green lung – which is located right next to the architectonically interesting “North City”.
  • The last third of the course leads you through the district of Alsterdorf towards the northern turning point in Ohlsdorf.
  • Turning onto Maienweg, the remaining 12 kilometres – not unimportant psychologically – lead geographically only in the direction of the finish.
  • After the turn onto Alsterkrugchaussee, the course continues via Tarpenbekstraße and Lenhartzstraße towards Eppendorfer Baum.
  • By arriving the west bank of the Alster you will reach one of the most iconic and prosperous hansenatic neighbourhoods, the district of Rotherbaum.
  • Being back in the city it´s almost just a stone´s throw to the finish.
  • By passing the City garden “Planten un Blomen” you will have to vanquish a last little climb, before impressive courthouses announce the final turn towards the finish stretch on the Glacischaussee.
  • You did it!
