BERLIN MARATHON, GERMANY

Date: 26th September, 2021

Berlin continues to astonish with the performances run there. Eleven world records have been set on the course, including  the first sub 2:05, 2:04 and 2:03 marathons. Its most recent world record in 2018, which still stands as the official marathon world record, was arguably the best,  a sensational 2:01.39 performance by Kenyan superstar, Eluid Kipchoge.  But it's not just the elite that run their best times at Berlin.

Berlin continues to astonish with the performances run there. Eleven world records have been set on the course, including  the first sub 2:05, 2:04 and 2:03 marathons. Its most recent world record in 2018, which still stands as the official marathon world record, was arguably the best,  a sensational 2:01.39 performance by Kenyan superstar, Eluid Kipchoge. 

But it's not just the elite that run their best times at Berlin. More than 45,000 runners turn up at Berlin each year in search of a personal best and on the long, straight, flat roads of the course, many of them achieve it. From our own group who ran the race in 2019 - there was no race in 2020 - we estimate that about 80% ran a PB. But Berlin is far more than a just a fast course, it's a cool city with easy access from UK makign it the perfect place for an long running weekend away.

For 2021 we are once again working with the Scandic Berlin Potsdammerplatz Hotel, our main base for a number of years. It's a lovely modern 4-star hotel close to the main shopping streets around Pottsdammer Platz with easy connections to the excellent Berlin S and U-Bahn systems. More importantly it's only a 30-minute walk from the marathon start/finish area in the Tiergarten, which is why it has provded so popular with clients over the years.
