The Bremen Marathon starts and finishes at the central market square. The Marktplatz is surrounded by UNESCO-listed Medieval and Renaissance monuments like the Town Hall of Bremen and the Cathedral. The SWB Marathon Bremen will take you on a loop course with long sections by the Weser river. The route showcases some of the best attractions the city has to offer and you can do plenty of sightseeing while running. Be prepared to face some small hills that make the Bremen Marathon even more exciting. You can expect fun and supportive atmosphere along the course and plenty of runner-friendly autumn weather.

Description by organiser keyboard_arrow_down

In 2010, this popular route was extended by another highlight: the field starts between the town hall, Schütting and Bürgerschaft and re-enters there. In between there is the proven mixture of exciting and quieter sections with altogether less power-consuming slopes: over the Neustadt, the Werdersee and Habenhausen to the second river crossing at the Weserwehr. Then Hastedt, Schwachhausen and Horn Spalier are the runners in the swb marathon.

The second half introduces the universe. Later it goes through the Bürgerpark, Findorff and the Überseestadt back to the Weser. Finally form the Schlachte, the Weser Stadium and the home straight over the Obernstraße to finish next to the Bremen Roland the very last highlights of the 42.195 kilometers.
