Wow, and I thought that after running all the major Marathons all over the world, nothing would amaze me anymore. What a terrific race, Luxembourg! The Marathon starts at 7 in the evening, quite an unusual time for a race, and it actually has huge benefits. While organizers and volunteers are busy setting up water stations for runners, by 4 pm an entire city is covered with beer stations for spectators. All the residents of Luxembourg and tourists get bright orange Marathon hats and noisemakers, and by the time runners start the race at the Expo Center, the city is ready to explode with Carnival-like emotions. The Marathon course is spectacular – beautiful parks, attractive neighborhoods, and thunderous ovations of many thousands of spectators (and beer!) everywhere but especially in the Old City. At around 30 km mark runners descend into the valley under the walls of the ancient fortress. The sky is dark by now, and the course is lit by paper lanterns which are turned off every minute or so for half a second plunging the course into darkness and making it feel that you are in a fairy tale forest. You are supposed to hit the wall by then but with all this magic I felt stronger than even at the start. And then – a very dramatic finish inside the Expo Center that turns into a huge beer hall with runners celebrating well into the night. Add to it excellent organization, great volunteers, very frequent water stations with good-tasting isotonic drink, bananas and oranges, good and free pasta party a night before, incredible spectator support throughout an entire course, and it definitely looks like one of the best Marathons in the world.

^Quite good organisation, very hard up and down, few people supporting except at the start and city centre, too expensive. 3/5
