Berlin Marathon

Date: 16 September 2018
Location: Berlin, Germany
Distance: 26.2 miles

The BMW Berlin Marathon is one of the Big 5 in the World Marathon series with over 40,000 athletes competing. It was voted “Marathon of the Decade” by the Association of International and Distance Races and is the third largest marathon in the world.

The atmosphere at Berlin Marathon is absolutely incredible! Over 60 bands line the street to play to the runners and over 1.5 million people turn up to cheer the athletes along the route. As you pass the finish line collect your non-alcoholic beer before heading to the awards ceremony to see the winners presented with their awards. And don’t forget to return for the Marathon party from 8pm.
