Hannover, 07. April 2019: HAJ-Marathon Hannover – it runs well!
KSM participated with 27 runners at this year’s HAJ-Marathon in Hannover. All runners took a good position among the almost 26.650 participants.
Like every year, the first Sunday in April was fully dedicated to running. At perfect weather, almost 26.500 runners took part in different disciplines and course distances. Inline skaters, relays, walkers and runners, of course, participated in disciplines like marathon, half-marathon and 10 km run. At bright sunshine, more than 200.000 visitors turned the city center of Hannover into a spring festival and loudly cheered for the runners.
Among the running events, the HAJ is one of the highlights and is characterized by an extremely flat race. All in all this was a well-rounded event at perfect weather and with perfect teams.
Thanks to all colleagues that came to Hannover and congratulations to your top performances. We hope to see you all again next year.
