The swb Marathon takes runners on a course through Bremen's entire metropolitan area and is the city's main running event of the year. As always there will also be a half marathon, a 10km race and a children's race.
October 6th, 2024
Since 2006, thousands of Bremen citizens have been experiencing a day of running in autumn: the swb Marathon invites you to run through many parts of the city on a distance of 42.195 kilometres, which is usual for this discipline. The route runs from the city centre through Neustadt, past Lake Werdersee and the Weser weir, to Hastedt, Schwachhausen and Horn. From Universum, the participants then pass Bürgerpark, leave Findorff and Überseestadt behind them to get back to the Weser. The river accompanies the runners along Schlachte to the wohninvest Weser Stadium from where they head back to the city centre towards the finish.
For those who find the "real marathon" too far, there are two other distances to choose from: a half marathon and a 10-km run.
In previous years, the running event on the first weekend in October attracted so many sports enthusiasts that early registration is recommended.
