About Hella Hamburg Half Marathon

The Hella Hamburg halfmarathon (hella hamburg halbmarathon) promises once again to be a spectacular sporting event for Hamburg. As one of the “pure” half marathon races in Germany, this classic city race leads past numerous Hamburg tourist attractions and is considered to be the fastest of the German summer half marathon races. The start will take place at 10 a.m. on the four-lane Reeperbahn, accompanied by the sound of samba drums and DJ support, while the skaters will head out on the course 30 minutes earlier.


Age Limit

16-years-old and older.


Only the BMS chip is used for the hella hamburg semi - marathon. An existing ChampionChip is not valid. Participation without a BMS chip is not possible.
