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!

My Favorite Thing

My favorite thing about Marathon Tours is that you put the runners and their health, safety and comfort as your number one priorities!  

This is just a quick note to remind you of the incredible services that each of you offer, and I myself have just been so thankful for all of you over these years.  As a wife, mother, professional and runner you have brought such peace of mind to my life.  I am so thankful to know that when it comes to the one activity of me that brings me joy, I know I can count on all of you for help when I want to do something adventurous!  

Thank you for all that you do to make people’s dreams come true and support them even when they just have to wait a bit longer.  In the end, Marathon Tours and their agents are always going to be ready and willing to make sure that each person gets the best of the best!   I just wanted you to know that for some of us, our experiences with marathon tours holds deep meaning in our lives because of all the goodness you have contributed.

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 : )
