Marathon in Freiburg, Germany 2015

Last Saturday, on March 29th, the annual marathon took place for the 12th time in Freiburg, Germany. It was my second time photographing the event.

11.137 runners from 34 nations participated despite rainy and windy weather.

Here are some moments from the day, beginning with a photo that got published in the Guardian.
