Fleet Feet

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

Three days be­fore the Ger­man uni­fi­ca­tion in 1990, 25,000 run­ners ran through the Bran­den­burg Gate, a lot of them with tears in their eyes. It was also the day when the Ber­lin Marathon, with its rel­a­tively flat course, es­tab­lished it­self as one of the fastest and most fa­mous footraces in the world. The course winds its way through the city, tak­ing in some of Ber­lin’s most prom­i­nent land­marks. Last year saw dou­ble the par­tic­i­pants of the 1990 race, hail­ing from 130 dif­fer­ent na­tions. To cheer on the run­ners in the 42nd BMW Ber­lin Marathon, tak­ing place on 27 Septem­ber, sim­ply join the masses of spec­ta­tors along the race route. www.bmw-ber­lin-marathon.com
