The half marathon gives the runners the opportunity to experience Dresden in the same special way as the participants of the whole marathon. Both courses start at the same time and run the same path. At the point where the marathon is about to start its second round, the participants of the Dresden Half Marathon run towards the finish line. During the run, the runners pass by the highlights of the city and can enjoy the special atmosphere of this event. On the same weekend a 10 km run will also be held.
