as it became known after a meeting of Chancellor Merkel with the minister presidents of the federal states yesterday, the states want to ban major events until at least the end of October. The minister president of the federal state of Hesse Volker Bouffier (CDU) and the president of social affairs Kai Klose (Grüne) will inform later today (June 18th) whether Hesse will follow this advice to extending a ban on major events which was first set for August 31st. Due to this new development the implementation of the 39th Mainova Frankfurt Marathon on Okober 25th unfortunately became highly unlikely. We are in close interaction with the Hessian Ministry of the Interior and Sport in order to promptly reach a final decision regarding our event. We will proactively keep you informed through our various media (website, newsletter, facebook & Instagram) as soon as new information becomes available. We would kindly ask you to refrain from further questions until then. Please give us a few more days for the upcoming important decisions. In case of a cancellation of our event we will of course get in touch with all registered participants. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
Stay healthy and keep on running!
