9. The route
All runs (see above) will be completed on one course. The route runs straight from the historic old town (starting area = Kohlmarkt), through Breite Strasse, Burgtor, through Herrentunnel to Travemünde and back again. The turning points for the student run, DAK-Gesundheit-family run, the Marathon relay (after 2.1 miles) and half marathon (after 10.55 km) are marked with booth and helpers. The marathon turning point is directly at the western end, right on the promenade of Travemünde. From here the marathon runners run back.
Running twice through the Herrentunnel is one of the highlights during the Stadtwerke Lübeck Marathon. The Herrentunnel has a length of approximately 800m and a slope of 6% until 31m below sea level. Thanks to modern technology (ventilation, lighting) there are good conditions for the runners inside the tunnel. More information also at www.herrentunnel.de.
