The German speaking world (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Luxemburg and Liechtenstein) may be quite small on a map, but with more than 200 marathons every year, it is quite present in the running scene. My name is Stefan Hornke, and I am very happy to serve as your Marathon Globetrotters Ambassador for this region. Whether you need help crossing the language barrier when signing up for race or making travel arrangements, would like to get useful information on how to travel and what to see or desperately want to get into one of those always sold-out races, contact me at any time, I will be delighted to help.

As far as my running bio goes, I started late in the game. After an extensive career in smoking and drinking, I ran my first marathon in 2004. I have since accumulated over 100 of them, with two handful of ultras and almost as many halfs strewn in here and here, but to this day never anything shorter.

My favorite races are Tokyo, Swiss Alpine, Frankfurt, and the Crater lake rim.
