“The brand 361° is as young as it is aspiring and stands for recognized high-quality and attractive running shoes which regularly receive excellent ratings in surveys undertaken by well-known running magazines compared with established competitor brands. We are delighted to become partners in the success story of 361° which has only just begun," said Frank Thaleiser, chief organizer of the Haspa Marathon Hamburg.

Jurian Elstgeest, managing director of 361° Europe, commented: “Hamburg is special when it comes to sport. I’ve seen so many people from local communities participating in road running, triathlon and cycling events here in the city. Over the years I’ve run around the Alster, summer, and winter, and people are always out there. Hamburg has this sporty vibe running through its veins and we love being part of that. We’ll be working closely with local runners and race organizers to help every participant exceed their expectations.“
