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.
