W/S Marathon ends SCRIPT Germany: Go directly to jail. Do not collect $200 at the finish line The JVA Darmstadt Prison unlocked its prison gates on Sunday to welcome members of the public keen to run around the facility perimeter for over three hours in the rain. This annual Marathon saw 180 runners, 17 of them inmates, participate in the unusual event that was won by Alain Silverio from Luxembourg in 2:29:17. Since 2007, members of the public have been allowed to take part in the competition which was originally started as a project for prison inmates. Before commencing the run, participants had to go through a metal detector and instead of firing a shot into the air to announce the beginning, a countdown was held. There was a specially designated course for the runners that used the entire prison perimeter and to complete the marathon they had to run 24 laps of it.
