A World Marathon Majors race, Berlin is famed for its record-breaking race course, mild weather, and legendary crowd of supporters turning the race into one giant marathon festival. The Berlin Marathon is frequently referrred to as one of the best-organized marathons on the planet.

The race course is flat, and winds through both East and West Berlin, and takes in some of Berlin’s most historic landmarks, lots of live music, and a grand finish through the iconic Brandenburg Gate. Berlin features temperate weather with average September temperatures of 11-19 C range and an above-average share of sunshine. 

Since 2003, all marathon world records have been run in Berlin, with the latest world record set in 2018 by Eliud Kipchoge (Kenya) with a time of 2:01.39, and the following year in 2019, Kenenisa Bekele (Ethiopia) came close to breaking that world record with an outstanding time of 2:01.41. This marathon is a must-do race for runners seeking to achieve a personal best time and possibly meet the qualifying time for the Boston Marathon. However, with a generous cut-off time of 6:15h it also caters to the slower peers among us.
