BMW BERLIN-MARATHON

Another Sold Out RunFun Travel Event!

 

From its start in 1974, with just 286 entrants, to being the fastest marathon course in the world, the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is steeped in history, tradition and world record breaking runs.

In 2024 we will be hosting your trip to Berlin and you can travel with Australia's most knowledgeable marathon team; the facts, the figures, the history, the training, the day. Experience the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON you deserve!

The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON has long been renowned for its slick organisation and fast course, ,which it certalin is. In 2022 Eliud Kipchoge, the undisputed king of Berlin, broke the World Record with a blistering 2:01:09. In 2023 Tigist Assefa smashed the Women's World Record, running 2:11:53.

The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is just as exciting for those further back in the field, with the route passing through famous and infamous districts on excellent roads and finally passing through the Brandenburg Gate, that symbol of the old divide between east and west to the finish 400m beyond.

The city of Berlin is well worth a visit – it is a city of history, culture, art, architecture and fabulous night life. With no shortage of things to see and do – the Brandenburg Gate (you’ll get a close up as you finish the marathon!), Schloss Charlottenburg, Alexanderplatz, Berlin Cathedral, museums, art galleries, night clubs, restaurants, famous landmarks….. you’ll never be bored in this vibrant, friendly city.
