Date: 27th September, 2020

Berlin continues to astonish with the performances run there, with Kenyan runner Wilson Kipsang tearing up the roads in 2013 with a World best of 2hrs 03mins 23sec - replacing the previous record of compatriot Patrick Makau run on the same course by 15sec - the time in 2014 by Kimetto of 2hrs 02min 57sec survived by a few seconds as the winning time was 2.03 by Bekele in 2016. 2017 was billed as a big head-to-head and sub-2hr attempt by Bekele and Eluid Kipchoge, but rainy conditions saw Bekel…

Berlin continues to astonish with the performances run there, with Kenyan runner Wilson Kipsang tearing up the roads in 2013 with a World best of 2hrs 03mins 23sec - replacing the previous record of compatriot Patrick Makau run on the same course by 15sec - the time in 2014 by Kimetto of 2hrs 02min 57sec survived by a few seconds as the winning time was 2.03 by Bekele in 2016. 2017 was billed as a big head-to-head and sub-2hr attempt by Bekele and Eluid Kipchoge, but rainy conditions saw Bekele pull out and Kipchoge run 2.03.32. However, in 2018 Kipchogi inproved the World best to 2.01.39 - which was simply sensational - and then Kenenisa Bekele almost topped it, finishing just 2 seconds slower in 2019. 

From our own group of runners we estimate tha about 80% ran personal best times and proof this is definitly the race to do if you are looking for improvements in your times.

Berlin is a cool city to visit - so much to see and do - add to this the fastest marathon in history then you really should have it on your hit list.

For 2020 we again have a choice of two very good hotels in their category, the 4-star Superior Scandic Berlin Potsdammerplatz and the 5-star Hotel Palace Berlin - both hotels are in the favoured locations, close to the main shopping Streets, like Pottsdammer Platz and Kurfurstendamm and with easy connections to the excellent Berlin S and U-bahn system. We have used the Scandic and Palace hotels for several years now and we are pleased to return in 2020 as the feedback from clients on both the standard of the hotels and their location.
