Your Experience

The BMW Berlin Marathon attracts over 45,000 runners every year. The 49th running of the Berlin Marathon promises to attract the best in the world together with a mix of club and social runners. Cut off time to run the course is 6 hours 15 minutes so you too can experience how it feels to run a legendary marathon on a World record course and become a Berlin legend!

On 30 September 1990 athletes were able to run through the Brandenburg Gate for the first time and since then, the course has covered both halves of the unified city.

The start and finish are both located in the Tiergarten on Straße des 17. Juni between Brandenburg Gate and Victory Column. The course is fast, characterised by flat, wide roads with several long straight sections and enthusiastic spectators cheering you through the streets of this historic city. The BMW Berlin Marathon presents all runners with a great opportunity to aim at a new PB!

Marathon Tours & Travel has guaranteed entries, which can be added to our Berlin Marathon package.

Throughout the weekend the Marathon Tours & Travel team, many of whom have run the marathon will provide support and guidance so you can be assured of a stress free weekend. There are opportunities to make the most of your visit and meet fellow runners to share the experience!

You can book a Marathon Tours & Travel Berlin Marathon package, add guaranteed entry and still enter the BMW Berlin Marathon lottery.  Should you receive an entry when the lottery is announced we will deduct the entry from your booking. You have nothing to lose!

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.
