The Sparkasse Marathon through the three Lake Constance countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland is legendary and attracts a sports-mad public from all over the world. In 2021, the Sparkasse 3-Länder-Marathon will be held on 10 October 2021.
This race connects countries and people
Starting at the Lindau harbour promenade, the marathon route leads directly along the shore of Lake Constance to Bregenz. Past the lake stage of the Bregenz Festival, the route continues through the Mehrerau Monastery. Where you normally have to show your passports, the customs officers wave you over the Swiss-Austrian border with cowbells. From St. Margrethen in Switzerland, the route then returns via the Rhine dam to the finish stadium in Bregenz.
The event usually comprises a total of five runs. If the Sparkasse Marathon at 42.195 km is too long for you, you can also choose a shorter distance: the Skinfit Half Marathon (21.0975 km), the ImmoAgent Quarter Marathon (10.9 km) or the Walking Track with 21 or 10.9 km. Alternatively, you can take part in the relay marathon and divide the marathon route between four runners.
RUN EXPO FORUM - the fair around the Sparkasse Marathon
During the Sparkasse 3-Länder-Marathon, the island and garden city of Lindau at Lake Constance will be under the sign of running for three days. Regional and national suppliers of the running industry will present their products and services in the Inselhalle Lindau.
A fixed part of the programme for those interested in sport and running is also the Health Symposium, where sports scientists, nutrition experts, orthopaedists and doctors will give interesting lectures. Admission to the event is free.
The pasta party is also very popular, where participants can get to know each other over a meal and exchange experiences.
