Your Itinerary 

Depending on the length of stay you have booked with us you might arrive before or depart on different days to the following itinerary. The itinerary below reflects the 3 nights package. Berlin has plenty to see and do so we recommend extra nights.

What about my race bib collection?

Berlin Half Marathon race bib must be collected from the Marathon Expo at Flughafen Tempelhof - opening hours are to be advised. Included with the bib will be a timing rental chip.

Flughafen Tempelhof – Venue of the Berlin Half Marathon Expo

The former Airport Tempelhof is one of the most spectacular and historically significant event locations in the world. The building ensemble is being used for different events since 2009 - with an impressive number of events and visitors. Trade fairs, music and sport events also take place in Europe’s largest monument as well as product presentations, gala dinners and award ceremonies. Already in 2012 there were more than 1,000 applications from event organisers. In addition, there were 200 interested parties, who wanted to take pictures and video-shoot. In 2012, more than 60 events were organised with more than half a million visitors. Since October 2015, a few hangars as well as parts of the apron are being used as temporary emergency refugee accommodation and are not available for renting for events. Moreover, the main hall, the heart of the event location, offers place for your events as well as photography and video-shooting.

PAPS test

Before you start with the registration, you will be asked to take 2-3 minutes of time to protect your health by completing a non-binding and free health check.

Regular physical activity has a positive effect on your health. However, sport is no guarantee for a risk-free state of health. Familial risk factors, but also lifestyle-related risks are not always in direct correlation with your training condition and should be known in advance. Therefore, please be honest with yourself when answering the questions.

With the PAPS test, we want to help you become aware of your own state of health—there are no consequences for your eligibility to participate. The recommendation at the end of the test is made available to you for your personal and voluntary further use. The PAPS test does not replace a visit to the doctor and cannot provide 100% certainty of an existing or emerging risk. The collected, non-personalized data will not be handed over to the organiser. The data may be used in anonymised and encrypted form for scientific purposes by the Medical Board of SCC EVENTS.
