International Airport Race at Airport Hamburg Lufthansa SV
What a good idea to hold a running race at the airport. The track is flat and well kept tarmac, great for those pounding feet, the view is clear even on a cloudy day and there is plenty of room for spectators, food stalls and even a little live music. With the added entertainment for watching the planes take off and land nearby what a great way to spend a sunny Sunday in September.
The race is a 10 mile circuit of the outer edge of the main airfield in Hamburg giving you a surreal backdrop. The race is organised and run mainly by the Lufthansa Hamburg Sports Club (LSV) so you will be mixing with locals so you can get a feel for the culture in Hamburg on the beaten track.
