The GENERALI MUNICH MARATHON has held the elite label of the WORLD ATHLETICS since 2020 and the marathon route is officially measured and recognized.
The route runs from the Olympic Park and Schwabing to Leopoldstraße with the Siegestor, via Königsplatz and the Pinakotheken to the English Garden. From there past the Chinese Tower and Art Nouveau villas in Bogenhausen, through the east of Munich, past the Gasteig and over the Isar Bridge to the Deutsches Museum. Then it's off to the new route highlight, the Viktualienmarkt and Marienplatz! Then non-stop via the Bavarian State Opera and our residence to Odeonsplatz. The final sprint goes via the Theatinerkirche via Ludwigstraße back to the Olympic Stadium - to the Grand Final!
The goosebumps begin with the last 100 meters: in the large marathon gate, the runners immerse themselves in a scenario of fog, music, applause and loud cheers. The home straight of the Olympic Stadium are the final meters of the GMM 2022. Got it! That's what they say in Bavaria.
BY THE WAY: The course record of 2:09:46 has not been broken for 20 years. DO YOU ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE?
