CHANGE OF COURSE FOR MARATHON / Half Marathon and DuoMarathon 2019

The course of the marathon and half marathon will be changed by more than 1km for the 2019 edition. In the Tribschen section the route will no longer be via Tribschenstrasse, but via Landenbergstrasse. The route will therefore also pass the headquarters of our official partner "Emmi". Participants can look forward to special entertainment from Emmi in this section.
