ACCOMMODATION & GUARANTEED ENTRY PACKAGE
The BMW Berlin Marathon is one of the world’s greatest marathons, with over 40,000 entries expected from 100 countries in 2019. The course is flat, traffic-free and fast – in fact, the fastest course in the world. In 2018 Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya broke the world record with an incredible new time of 2:01:39. The world record has been broken five times in Berlin in the past ten years. Berlin is one of the six World Marathon Majors.
The 46th edition of the race starts at 9.15am on the six-lane Strasse des 17 Juni. The marathon is run in an average annual temperature of 13oC / 55 oF. The course takes in some of East and West Berlin’s great sights, before finishing close to the start area at the magnificent Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. Showers, massage and refreshments are provided at the finish area. Note: The finish line closes after 6hrs 15mins.
The International Breakfast Run (6K) on Saturday morning at 9.30am is also one of the best anywhere. The run finishes in the historic 96,000-seater Olympic Stadium, scene of the 1936 Olympics and where the World Cup Final took place in 2006. The City: Berlin has changed greatly since the Wall came down in 1989. Historic sites like the Reichstag have been magnificently restored. Discover the sophistication of the West and savor the contrast with pre-unification East Berlin sites such as Unter den Linden, Alexanderplatz and Museum Island.
