BERLIN MARATHON, GERMANY

Date: 24th September, 2023

There will always be arguments about the world's best marathons. There are fewer debates about the world's fastest 26.2 milers. Berlin is top of everyone's list. At the elite level it has seen twelve world records including the first performances under 2:05, 2:04 and 2:03. It's most recent world record from 2022 was a sensational 2:01.09 performance by Kenyan superstar, Eliud Kipchoge.  But it's not just the elite that run their best times at Berlin.

There will always be arguments about the world's best marathons. There are fewer debates about the world's fastest 26.2 milers. Berlin is top of everyone's list. At the elite level it has seen twelve world records including the first performances under 2:05, 2:04 and 2:03. It's most recent world record from 2022 was a sensational 2:01.09 performance by Kenyan superstar, Eliud 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 2022 a high proportion ran a PB.

But Berlin is far more than a just a fast course, it's a cool city with easy access from the UK, making it the perfect place for a long running-weekend away. For 2023 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 provided so popular with clients over the years.
