Run4Concern: Berlin Marathon

16 September 2018

The Berlin Marathon is one of the world's greatest marathons, with over 40,000 entries expected from 100 countries in 2018. The course is flat, asphalted, traffic-free and fast – in fact, it's the fastest course in the world. The world record has been broken three times in Berlin in the past five years.

The Breakfast Run 

Taking place on Saturday morning at 9.30am is the optional 6K Breakfast Run. Feel like a champion when you finish your run in the historic 96,000-seater Olympic Stadium, scene of the 1936 Olympics and where the World Cup Final took place in 2006. This run can serve as a useful warm up before the marathon on Sunday.

World's greatest marathon

You'll take 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 some well-deserved refreshments are provided at the finish area.  

Experience the city

Berlin has changed greatly since the Wall came down in 1989. In recent years historic sites like the Reichstag have been magnificently restored. Discover the sophistication of the West and savour the contrast with pre-unification East Berlin sites such as Unter den Linden, Alexanderplatz and Museum Island.

The details

To take part in this event, you’ll need to pay a €300 deposit and have a minimum fundraising amount of €50.
