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. 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!

Thanks, for all the hard work you and your team did to coordinate the Berlin Marathon. I did not realize Marathon Tours had that many folks attending, so after attending the welcome reception, I had a new appreciation for all the work your team had between COVID impact last year and then coordinating this year.
I had a very memorable trip and I just wanted to say thank you and GREAT JOB to your team. I look forward to doing more marathon trips through you, as I continue my 6 star Abbott quest.
MTT made everything easy at my first international marathon, especially considering the COVID challenges. I have participated in many US marathons on my own, but I think I would have had a difficult time in Berlin on my own. Thanks!
I’m writing to just say “thank you” for absolutely everything to make Berlin just amazing… over the past 2 years I cannot imagine the stress and gazillion emails you’ve responded to and you ALWAYS answered each one of mine (and I ask a lot of questions!) so timely and with patience and above all, information! I’m appreciative! You helped calm a lot of nerves heading into this trip and I’m grateful to have MTT in my life!
