It is one of the big-5 marathons which comprise the World Marathon Majors series, the others being London, New York, Boston and Chicago marathons. The Berlin Marathon’s loop course is flat and fast, with as many as seven world records being created in men and women marathons since the run started. The first Berlin Marathon took place in October 1974.

Numerous world best performances and world records have been set here in the past few years. The atmosphere in Berlin is world-class, as well.

It is an unforgettable experience for every marathon fan!
