The annual Spree Marathon took place on 15 and 16 October 2022. More than 40 athletes from Denmark, France, Austria and Germany took part in this exciting race. All participants travelled together to the start in a large bus. The start was again on the bank of the Spremberg dam. As soon as the start signal sounded, the athletes ran to their boats and SUP boards. From there, they set off in a triangular course across the reservoir. After they had mastered the first portage, the boats were lowered into the Spree. The destination was the boathouse in Cottbus.
This year, the starting signal for the 3rd Spreemarathon in Cottbus will sound again on 15 and 16 October 2022. Are you an ambitious water sports enthusiast looking for a new challenge? Then our marathon is the right place for you! In two days of racing, the participants will fight for victory by covering more than 51 km with some riverbed swells and portages. This guarantees an exciting head-to-head race. The marathon can be contested in various boat classes. SUP athletes can also take part in this exciting competition and gain eventful experience on the Spree.
After we had to cancel the second edition of the Spree Marathon last year, we are planning to run the marathon on the weekend of 16./17. October this year.
For those born in 2005 and later, we'll run a race over 14km with two portages as part of the Spreemarathon on Saturday, October 16.
