In 1990, the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON hosted more than 25,000 runners who for the first time ran through Brandenburg Gate and into East Berlin. Runners were crying while they stopped to kiss the ground. It was an emotional run for all. Since then, runners have continued to flock to Berlin each year to experience one of the best organized marathons in the world.  This is a race you need to plan ahead for as the event closes entries about mid-November with a max of 40,000 runners. Marathon Tours & Travel has guaranteed entries, which can be obtained when our four-night package is purchased. 

This Abbott World Marathon Majors race course is flat and fast with only a few corners. Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge smashed the world record at the 2018 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, running 2:01:39 to chop over one minute off the mark set by Dennis Kimetto four years earlier on the same course. The course also produced the first sub 2:20 marathon by a woman, Naoko Takahashi, in 2001.  The race is also known for having ideal weather for running and is run on asphalt versus concrete.  It is definitely one to target for your PR!

2019 Marathon Tours Loch Ness Marathon Trip

I've always wanted to visit Scotland and when I saw it as an extension to Berlin I jumped on it. I never would have imagined ever doing multiple marathons but now I know I can do it! Runcations are the best : )

2019 Marathon Tours Berlin Trip

Thank you, thank you, Nicole, and the entire staff of Marathon Tours. The trip to Berlin was so well organized and every detail was well planned. From the welcome night, the tour of Berlin, the transport to the Expo, transport to the fun run, the pasta dinner and the post-race party, the organization was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the race and your hospitality was excellent. I am still on a “high” and I look forward to another race with Marathon Tours. Please thank everyone at marathon Tours. I really appreciated all your efforts.
