I am a keen runner, just about to run a half marathon and am moving to hamburg in about 6 weeks. I wondered if there are any running clubs around? X

Yes! Most are called Lauf-Treff in some form or another, some are just regular meet-ups while others are formal clubs which require membership formalities such as attendance at organizational meetings, etc...

 

A few websites that list the groups are:

Hamburg is a great place to run, not only because it's flat, but because of all the recreational trails along the canals and elsewhere, and the Alster, of course. :-) Have fun!

It's not specifically a runners club - but you may find something on there... they have the runs going on in HH and (i've not looked through it all) you may find a link to a club :)

Hi,

Are you after a running club to compete in advents, or after a training group to run with and do the odd event?

 

There are 4 main running clubs in Hamburg that are aimed at people wanting to compete in "tradional" athletics events.

 

However, there is also a large betriebsport scene where people can compete for their company. If your company does not have a betriebsport group you can join another team, as a guest.

 

Over winter they have a cross country season, and through summer there is a mix of road running and track events. The difference between the two is that at the moment the betriebsport events have more runners attending and a bigger mix of abilities, so there is almost always at least 1 runner that can run your pace. Some of the companies also offer training during the week for the group.

 

Here is the address for our one http://www.laufwerk-hamburg.de/index.php?id=377

Hi there. I'm visiting Hamburg next month and want to run 10k at this event. http://www.winterlaufserie-hamburg.de/

 

Unfortunately don't speak any German, wondering if anyone knows that event and could help me out a bit with registration and getting there on public transit? If you're able to help, please reply or PM me. Thanks!

Hi,

 

I checked the site, and you can choose English for the online registration form.

 

if the starting address as Klaus-Groth-Straße 95, then all you need to do is take the U2 to Burgstrasse and walk about 6 minutes.

 

check HVV if you need another destination.

If you're interested in something less stressful and still want to do some running, you could also try, Hansestatd Hamburg Hash House Harriers Hummel Hummel - The only H7 in the world. We currently meet up every second Saturday at 2pm.

 

Run times and location are usually posted to the website listed above, but we generally keep in contact with each other via http://www.meetup.com/hamburghash/. We also have a small charity fundraiser coming up on Dec 1, and will be passing the cup around for Prostate Cancer Research. You're welcome to join us, details are on TT Events, and the Meetup Page listed herein.

 

Cheers.

 

Masterbaker.
