Let’s be honest – who would not rather run a marathon in an area where others go on holiday in the beautiful East Allgäu home of the royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau?
Preparations for the 16th Königsschlösser Romantic Marathon to be held on 24th July 2016 are well underway and the first registrations have already fluttered through our letterbox. The Königsschlösser Romatic Marathon hosted in the East Allgäu - one of the most attractive and prettiest regions in the whole of Bavaria – is a unique run. This was confirmed once again by the run staged this year: over 800 runners went under starter’s orders in Füssen on a day with the most perfect weather conditions. Some three kilometres later, with the town left far behind, the runners could look forward to the rest of the run through the most beautiful countryside imaginable: across the Hopfer forest, round Lake Hopfensee, across the floodplain of the river Lech along the banks of Lake Forggensee, across lush green meadows and past the royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, through the Schwansee woodlands and on to the final sprint for the town again.
The fantastic times from the year 2010 have set a huge challenge for the runners taking part in 2016: Titus Kosgei (Kenya) set a new track record of 2:19:08 for the men whilst Beatrice Rutto (Kenya) was the fastest woman setting a track record of 2:43:14. These are both times that the runners next year will have their work cut out to beat.
Have we whetted your appetite to take part in this fabulous marathon in the Königswinkel? The registration fee includes the running shirt, medals for finishers, a finisher video, a downloadable and printable certificate and finally our legendary pasta party. It goes without saying that the impeccable time keeping by davengo and the added incentive of the beautiful countryside are also included.
