INFO MARATHON MUNICH Whoever has competed in the MUNICH MARATHON that has been held for 30 years will know that tingling sensation. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible; it only subsides after the starter’s pistol sounds, followed by the first elated steps. The sightseeing tour starts when the runners start the race: Olympic Park, English Garden, Bogenhausen art nouveau villas, Munich Gasteig, Isar Bridge, Gärtnerplatz, Sendlinger Straße, Marienplatz, Town Hall, Bavarian State Opera, Residenz, Munich Pinakotheken, Odeonsplatz, Theatinerkirche, Königsplatz, Siegestor, Leopoldstraße. Countless highlights line up next to each other before the Olympic Stadium comes within the range of vision. The runners get goose bumps: at the big marathon gate the runners are rewarded with mist, music and colourful lighting. On the last 300 metres and accompanied by the cheers of the crowd, they turn into the home stretch of the Olympic Stadium. “G’schafft” (I’ve made it), as the Bavarians say! And then? Smile please! Everyone’s a winner! Starting documents
