Event Overview

BMW Berlin Marathon 2018

If you want to experience how it feels running a marathon through a fascinating city you must enter the BMW Berlin Marathon. Known as the fastest course in the world due to its flat profile and even surface, the BMW Berlin Marathon is one of the largest and most popular road races in the world.

Taking place on the last weekend in September, the scenic course will take you past many sights in the German capital including the Reichstag building, Fernsehturm, Potsdamer Platz and the Brandenburg Gate which is just before the finish line.  More than just a marathon, all of Berlin comes to life with more than 70 musical acts on the course and a festival-like atmosphere that attracts huge crowds who want to catch a glimpse of the action.
