The Course

Join 50,000 other marathoners and over 1 million spectators at the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, part of the Abbott World Marathon Majors marathon series. Since its inception in 1974, the course has been moved from the Grunewald, a large forest in West Berlin, to the city centre of West Berlin, to the current course which winds through both parts of the Berlin capital

The course takes you along the most scenic sites of Berlin, such as the Reichstag, the Siegessäule, Berliner Dom, Brandenburg, and Potsdamer Platz. The marathon course takes you through almost the entire city and has only a few turns. The finish of the Berlin Marathon runs through the historic Brandenburger Gate.

The course is home to a host of World Records, and has a total elevation gain of just 73M (241 feet), whilst the elevation loss is 79m (260 feet).
