The Berlin Marathon and The Prague Marathon
German capital Berlin's architecture is what drew Kiran
Kapadia, 54, an architect, to run the Berlin Marathon in September 2012. “The 42km marathon begins from the historic Brandenburg Gate, and you run past all the cultural hubs and historic points in the city, like the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie,” says Kapadia. He also ran the Prague Marathon in 2011. “The route nearly covers the entire city and its tourist attractions,” he says. To make the most of this visit, Kapadia turned his marathon tour into a family vacation, and visited countries like Austria and Hungary. He also ran the Chicago Marathon this year. “Chicago is known as the birthplace of modern architecture. I was thrilled to run this marathon,” he says.
