To control the impossible: the Frankfurt Marathon in before the cancellation

It is probably only a matter of time before the Frankfurt Marathon, which this year on the 25. October has been terminated, is officially cancelled. Jo Schindler, the owner of the sports Agency motion events, which acts as the organizer, has asked the state of Hesse as a "Regulation" and thus the state Chancellery, by the end of July, a decision in the matter of the complaint.

The words of Schindler shows that the large-scale event must be due to the Corona pandemic. "We think the refusal is more likely than the implementation," he told this newspaper. Because according to the current state of events and meetings may take place by the end of October, with a maximum of 250 participants.

"The Problem is, ultimately, at these large events with many spectators in the spectator area. This is not, of course, to capture. You can make a marathon distance of over 42 kilometres, impossible to Contact chase, who, when, and where stood,“ says Schindler.

last year, the organizers counted a total of around 400,000 spectators along the route. "It is impossible to control." What the runners as runners – 2018 almost 27,000 were at the Start, would be from the point of view of Schindler, the Start of the marathon have been feasible. "This is the least of the problems. We would always start in small groups in the necessary distance, so that we would always have been under this 250 people. This place we had at the exhibition hall.“
