Join 40,000 other marathoners and over 1 million spectators at the BMW Berlin Marathon, part of the 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
With its fast, flat course, the Berlin Marathon is perfect if you are looking to improve your marathon time or complete your first race! In fact, the course is home to the current World Record time. The fast, but scenic route takes in many of the sites of Berlin including the Reichstag, Potsdamer Platz, Berliner Dom, and of course the Brandenburg Gate just before the finish line.
The team from Travelling Fit are some of the most knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic people I have come across. From my inaugural marathon (NY2018) they made me feel a part of the Travelling Fit family. They made the entire journey including all the running around seamless. I just had to turn up and run (and maybe train a little more ). Highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing their first, or any, marathon.
From meeting other runners to sightseeing in the rain, from drinks and pasta to directions on how to get everywhere, from crazy kangaroo antics to Shaylee and her weird notes from strangers, from hugs and photos to Tina on the microphone - it was a wonderful four days. Lots of laughs, running stories and friendships made. Thanks so much Travelling Fit for your organization, emails and support not just in Berlin, but for the last year !!! We can’t wait to do it all again.
The hotel used for the Berlin Marathon was fantastic with nice big rooms and great location. A winner! Also, the city tour in Berlin was brilliant! Travelling Fit puts a lot of thought and effort into giving their runners a wonderful experience. Well done!
I just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for the wonderful runs I’ve just returned from! Medoc and Berlin were a blast, incredibly well organised and fun from end to end (except for a bit in the middle there, but it was a very long way!)
I truly appreciated Lee’s gorgeous warm and professional nature, our groups were diverse and numerous but we were corralled with a smile and on time, on task and enjoying every minute. I don’t know how he did it! I was gobsmacked at Lee’s ability to go nonstop over very long, very packed days, swanning between the travellers adding to our experience, sorting out details, going the extra mile to point out directions, taking solo bods like me under his wing so we were never without a social option – to me it turns a run into an experience, and one that I’m happy to pay for and that will keep me returning to Travelling Fit.
Special mention goes to the equally amazing Ally who added to the whole experience with her own warmth, she was so lovely and friendly and happy to step in to help us all along – they were a slick double act! And not to be left off the list of thanks, the fabulous Tina behind the scenes who is like a virtual running fairy godmother, ironing out details and dealing with more t-shirt questions than a sane person should have to. Safe to say I am utterly beaming, and couldn’t be happier with my experience.
Runs #4 and #5 with Travelling Fit are now ticked off, I can only hope Antarctica next year goes just as well! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for me beyond that!
My sincere thanks once again; Lee, Ally, Tina, Mari-Mar and the entire Travelling Fit Team, you are truly brilliant at what you do, please keep doing it!
Travelling Fit have helped given us the opportunity to travel to so many places not only for 'a run' but all the before and after event adventures. Even better, our daughter has started to get the marathon bug so who knows where that will take her. (Chile in 2020?) So many of our friends just sit at home and watch sport or a holiday is travelling to Queensland every couple of years (not that there is anything wrong with QLD) but because of you Teresa and I are out there travelling the world. After Berlin, Teresa will be only two marathons away from her six point star which is pretty good as she only started running as part of her stroke therapy 11 months before Chicago 2016 and the Travelling Fit family (staff and all the runners) have played a huge part in getting her there. Cheers and thanks again for your fantastic support and patience.
I was recommended Travelling Fit by some friends who did the Berlin Marathon the previous year. They were absolutely right. The tour guides on site were exceptional; friendly helpful and encouraging , especially for a first time marathoner. The Movenpick hotel was perfectly placed to access restaurants, Mall of Berlin and the U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations. The other team members were typical of runners; friendly and happy to share in the successes of others. I was a little sad to see the experience end and I would definitely recommend Travelling Fit for any person who wants a stress-free marathon experience.
We have just completed the Berlin Marathon with Travelling Fit. What a wonderful experience! The Movenpick Hotel was a great choice in hotel as the room was comfortable, spacious, quiet, well-equipped and ideal in location to the shops, race start and expo. The hotel has an excellent restaurant and the breakfast variety was perfect. We were impressed with the Traveling Fit organization of the excellent pasta dinner, the after-race party, the superb drive around the city with excellent guides talking about the sights and the Aussie runners that we met were a fun group. Also we have to say we really liked the design and quality of your Travelling Fit t-shirt for the Berlin Marathon as better than the finisher's shirt!
Just wanted to say a big thank you for everything u do and did to ensure comfort and good prep for the marathon! I didn't get to spend much time with you and the crew throughout the experience but I never felt uncomfortable. You are very professional and I was so happy to be there helping represent Travelling Fit!! The marathon itself was another great experience!! You will be definitely hearing from me in the near future!! Thanks again.
I rarely use travel companies as I am quite happy to sort out the travel details myself. However, the smooth operation of Traveling Fit has had me back twice, and more trips planned. So, focusing on event travel is your speciality. Stick to it.

Thank you for a wonderfully organised Berlin marathon.
After a couple of days of excruciating muscle soreness, it’s smooth sailing on the body front. I’ll probably go for a cheeky 5km run with my other half tomorrow morning in the countryside around Cambridge.
After running (albeit slowly) the first half of Berlin, I did start to look for underground stations and taxis on the basis that I’d done what I set out to do. But by the time I got to 25km I doubled down and thought I might as well push on. My other half surprised me at 35km which was awesome and was at the finish line also.
I think part of the reason for pushing myself to finish was the fact that I couldn’t really wear all the gear I’d bought, including the finisher’s top, if I didn’t actually finish the run 🙂
The Mövenpick was a great find. Perfect spot and our room was very spacious. Guy used the gym a couple of times during our stay. The breaky was yummy. Wouldn’t it be great to be presented with yummy cut up fresh fruit and bircher every morning.
Oh, you should also know that Sonja, the masseuse, was very good. I have lots of massages – not just in Australia but around the world for my skiing. And Sonja was one of the best. I’ve never had a floor massage before. It was very helpful to receive your email early on with booking details so we could make a post run massage appointment and then forget about it.
I hope to see you all again soon. Perhaps Travelling Fit Berlin 2021! I’d be very happy to run it again. Berlin is a great city. Perhaps a time around 4hrs would be nice – actually, ideally 3hrs 59min. Would be nice to say ’sub 4’. Plus 6 hours running/jogging/walking is pretty full on.

For some reason, I was extra emotional about Berlin. I don’t know if it was because I’d just missed out on Boston, or because it was so far away without my kids, or if it was because I was hoping to pull off something HUGE with a goal of a 3:30 finish, a 4+ minute PB. But from the first time I met the Travelling Fit Team in the lobby there was a bit of calm because I felt like, you know what, for once, someone else has got this covered for me.
I didn’t need to think of anything except the race, and that was a lot of cognitive load removed.
I do all my training alone, and I love it. So it was unexpected that another really awesome part of Berlin was meeting others in the group. Immediately it felt like camaraderie. I met some amazing people immediately that first day and had huge laughs with Julie, Sandra, and Abbie before Julie and I impulsively took off to try out some Nike Next %!
I had already met Katie briefly in Tokyo, so it was great catching up with her throughout, and to share the anxious start-line experience with an amazing bunch of girls (Katie, Robyn, Sonya, and Miriam) was unreal. I even had the opportunity to catch Miriam and Julie on the course and have another shared experience (of disappointment) with them, which kind of helped me move through and refocus on just getting to that damn finish.
Damo had a lot of fun spectating and it was also a massive relief to know that he wasn’t wondering around lost but that he was hanging out and being organised by some rad ladies! Yeah, I didn’t get my 3:30 goal and that was disappointing, but I had an amazing experience and that is very much attributable to Travelling Fit!
Every time I saw the Travelling Fit team it was calming. Every time I saw someone in a Travelling Fit top, it was awesome. I LOVED the Travelling Fit experience and I am so extra excited that my final star is going to be with Travelling Fit. BOSTON BABY, I can’t wait!!!
Boston may be my last star, but I’m not done with my runcations and I hope I get the opportunity to do plenty more with TF.,
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU again!!!

BERLIN MARATHON – RACE REPORT
The bucket list. Many of us have one. The contents vary. There’s an entry in ours called ‘Complete the World Marathon Majors’. After our trip to Berlin that entry is now 50% complete. Read on for our story
Drew + Paul + Alison are onto WMM #3 following Tokyo (2014) and New York (2015). We’re joined by Lisa who’s succumbed to the mystery and intrigue of the international marathon, following her debut at Queenstown. We’re joined by Vanessa (Paul’s other half) and we all arrive in Berlin with a good dose of jetlag, some 32 hours after departure. Our preparation this year was pretty good, with a decent training base and a few good long runs. We are feeling optimistic, but all this talk of world record attempts has us nervous with the pressure to perform!
Guten Tag, we are in Berlin!
Thanks Qatar for your nice new plane but not sure why you parked at the arse end of the airport! We eventually get through Customs, make our way to the hotel and get checked in, then hit the marathon expo for our bib collection and some merchandise.
Operation #GETSOMEMERCH goes into overdrive and once again we all blow silly amounts of cash on anything with Berlin Marathon written on it. We love merch!!! We love merch!!! So much merch, Drew loses his shizzle. Then we hit a local restaurant for a schnitzel and beer, before returning to the hotel and collapsing in a jetlag-included coma.
Hit the Road
OK peeps, we’re here to run so let’s kick off with a gentle training session to acclimatise.
Lee and the team at Travelling Fit have done a cracking job once again, there are about 120 of us from all over Australia staying at the hotel. A good dose of Australiana is present with a blow-up Kangaroo. As you do.
A little bit of tourist promo is warranted before we get into the serious side of the run. We see some pretty amazing parts of this city, and all wish we had a bit more time here than the whirlwind marathon visit.
There have been some remarks made about the appropriateness of our race preparation. We enjoy Berlin and make sure that we sample all the city has to offer. Witness exhibit A the “large burger” that we enjoy for lunch on Friday from KaDeWe. That evening we chase it up with a five-hour bike tour that includes a three-course meal, each one eaten at a different restaurant. Excellent race prep, we are sure!
Time to Run
Race day is here. A leisurely 9:15am race start means breakfast in the hotel and a chance to review our race strategies. Most of them seemed to be focused on the warmer weather, with a top forecast in the low 20’s, it was to be a warmer run than we’d had over recent months in the Canberra winter. We make our way to the start village with the other Travelling Fit runners, wearing our rather alluring and fetching running tops. Paul and Drew are in wave 1 (but separate start corrals) with Lisa and Alison in wave 2 (also separate corrals). It gets real very quickly…the atmosphere is electric and this is one large field! 43,000 runners from across the globe, lined up down the main straight of the Tiergarten, pointing toward the Siegessäule or Victory Column.
We are Go!
The gun goes…we’re off!!! The balloons are away, the music is pumping and we hear the sound of hundreds of Garmins being started in unison. Oh and 42.2km to go…eeek.
It’s flat. Very flat. Wide roads with plenty of space. Ideal PB territory!
It’s also scenic, with a course that meanders throughout East and West Berlin, passing through cityscape and into neighbourhoods. There are bands playing, crowds cheering and no shortage of spectators. At times it feels like a longer version of the City2Surf, with the festive atmosphere and happy vibe. It is pretty warm! The sun is out and the temperature rises, so by the 30km mark it’s becoming a challenge to take on enough fluids to keep the body running well. The course is littered with showers (some small, some large courtesy of the local fire trucks!) which we run through to keep cool
Geez marathons never get easier, do they? As an aside there was a guy in the Travelling Fit group who’d run 400+ marathons. WTF? Paul and Drew interrogated him over dinner as to how that was possible. Turns out it is and he’s legit!!! He even did one of those ’50 marathons in 50 states’ in the USA. But even he said they don’t get easier, it’s just that you know what to expect. Reassuring, hey? So we’re all home and there is not a PB in sight…but what a cracking great run that was!
- Paul – went out pretty hard with a 1:26:41 first half, but then found it tough going and lamented his lack of preparation! He came home with a very credible 3:04:57. Nice work!
- Drew – went out at sub-PB pace for the first half then blew up at the 22km point. He crawled the last 10km home with a 3:40:34 which is his slowest marathon to date. But he loved it!
- Lisa – in excellent form and with some good training under her belt, she held her pace throughout the run and cruised home with a 3:38:42. Damn good effort Lisa, well done!
- Alison – a good run from Al who also held her pace well, coming home with a 3:56:33 to finish well inside the four-hour mark. Great job Al, love your work!
Hurrah, thank @#$% that’s done!!!!!!!!!
The World Record
So we were pretty lucky to be in Berlin the day that Eliud Kipchoge smashed the Marathon World Record. He finished in a time of 2:01:39 and took a massive one minute and 18 seconds off the previous time. It was amazing to come across the finish line and be greeted by a German dude excitedly waving a hastily-made placard showing the new world record!!! There was a real buzz about the place afterwards. Vanessa was lucky enough to see him come through the Brandenburg Gate just before the finish. If you haven’t seen his splits, they’re worth looking up. Any guy that can run at 2:53 per km pace for two hours deserves a world record. Wow – so impressive. As an aside we did see him out on a training run on the Friday, along with his other Kenyan buddies. We all pulled over and cheered them past
It’s a Wrap!
Another one done!
Paul, Drew and Alison are now halfway through our World Marathon Majors journey. What’s left?
- London – it’s hard to get into but we’ve all entered the ballot for 2019. We find out this month.
- Boston – the hardest to get into, with a tough qualifying system. Maybe that’ll be 2020.
- Chicago – probably after the other two, not sure just yet.
Assuming the bodies hold up and our husbands/wives/partners continue to support our WMM goal, we should have them done in the next few years.
Keep an eye out for our next race report as the journey continues….

This is my third world major with Travelling Fit and as with the other two- the team once again out did themselves!
Berlin Marathon 2017 hosted 44,000 runners from 120 countries. Whilst the Germans are known for their efficiency, the magnitude of the event combined with voting in the German Federal Election on the same day made the event a little more chaotic than usual and not the most organised of the majors that I’ve run. I won’t take away from the amazing event that it is and I certainly would recommend it to anyone who wants to try a world major. The course is the fastest in the world and the only marathon in the modern era where seven world records have been broken.
My day started early because I didn’t sleep much. At 7.30am we took off on our 20 min walk to the start line in cold and wet conditions. The atmosphere was already abuzz and the excitement of my 3rd world major was building. Today, along with runners from all over the world I would run through a historical city and soak in the German hospitality of 1 million spectators.
When you finally wind your way through the crowds at the starting village to your block the emotion becomes overwhelming. Music is playing, languages from all over the world are spoken excitedly and it is very hard not to cry. Cry from relief that you’ve made it here uninjured, cry for the sacrifice you and your family have made and cry for the incredible experience you are about to have. So with tears in my eyes we were off, running in the rain towards the Brandenburg Gate.
After leaving Brandenburg Gate, the course loops through both the former East and West of the city and passes all the major tourist attractions. The beautiful green historic city that Berlin is makes every twist and turn on the course spectacular. Despite the rain over 70 bands lined the way and the Berlin people braved the conditions to make us feel at home in their city.
My race was going well and I was on target and focussed. A travelling fit couple from Perth on similar time goals ran with me and kept me on pace. I was lucky enough to see my friend Jenny at the half way mark and it really lifted my spirits. Taking my fuel and drinking water at the stops, everything was going to plan.
At 29km I got a cramp up in my ribs. It took my breath away and I struggled to catch my breath again. I don’t know if it was being wet or cold or just unlucky. I was quite unwell with a long way to get home. I composed myself and thought through what I needed to do to get through. In one of the most beautiful cities in the world I could keep pushing through the acute pain or I could take it back a notch and enjoy the last 13 km. So I cut back and whilst still not feeling great I consciously made the choice to enjoy the experience. I started to dance at each band, sing along and high five the children. I Aussie Aussie Aussie oi oi oi’d and yelled out with fellow Australians and I relished the incredible experience I was having.
My watch was way out because I didn’t run the line so at 42km there was no sight of the finish. Finally as I clicked over to 42.8km I turned the last corner and there it was the beautiful Brandenburg Gate. I started to cry. With cheers and music getting louder I knew this was it. 43.12 km and I was home.
A marathon is hard. It’s unpredictable. It’s scary. They don’t get easier. Every marathon I have run takes all of my being to keep going to the finish.
As they hung the medal around my neck I thought about how I got here. 4 years ago when I started running I would never have dreamt of this moment.
I guess I can’t really end my story here. It would be remiss of me not to mention the beer at the finish line. I am in Germany after all. Also I have forgotten to thank my hero on the day. As I meandered the streets lost (as always), wet, cold and tired I was starting to despair. Suddenly a tuk tuk comes around the bend – a dude riding a bike where I can be the passenger. I jumped in front of his bike and begged him to take me to the hotel. I didn’t have his asking price but I must have looked so deranged he accepted my 20 euro. So up and over footpaths and across roads we went and eventually I got back to the hotel alive. Thanks mate you really were my hero.
So there it is Berlin Marathon 2017. Couldn’t recommend it more. What an experience!
I can’t wait to do London with Team Travelling Fit in April. I wouldn’t do international marathons any other way!

Hello Tina, Mari-Mar and all the crew at Travelling Fit. Having just returned from the Berlin Marathon experience I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS on a job really well done! The entire time in Germany was made so easy and uncomplicated by your excellent planning and management. It is so good to see company members who clearly love what they do, it sends out good vibes that are infectious. I have no doubt at all that I am going to be a ‘Travelling Fit’ client for many years to come and along the way will be referring as many potential clients to your business as I can. As you well know, referrals are gold but they only come because you are doing a great job, so give yourselves a big pat on the back because you are all running a great business and deserve the success I am sure you will receive.
Thanks for making our holiday a most memorable one.
Dan Cudmore – October 2013 – Berlin Marathon
This is just a short note of thanks and appreciation for the efforts by you and your team. I’ve recovered well from Berlin and started back with some easy running!!! Racing in an unknown part of the world always brings about some mixed feelings and anxiety. However,meeting Achim and the team soon settled all that. They have to be the most professional and enthusiastic team I’ve come across by far! Talk about people who love their job! Nothing was too hard for them and they couldn’t have done enough to make us feel so welcome in Berlin. I’m certain the entire Australian team would feel the same – we all felt right at home. It’s easy to get lost in Berlin and a simple call to Achim and your back on track! The race itself was “fast” and exciting!
Thanks again for all your efforts and looking forward to the next one!!!
Wayne Spies – October 2012 – Berlin Marathon
WOW! One of the best weekends ever (2012 BMW Berlin Marathon). Achim was amazing, his level of organization, enthusiasm and support for all of us was really impressive. Julia and Marcia were also so great, they are all such positive people – most of the time I had to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming. Apart from the marathon itself, Achim took us to a penthouse restaurant (you may have been there) afterwards where we saw the sun set and moon rise simultaneously whilst looking out over Berlin from 10 stories up. The after party – what a hoot! Again Achim positioned us so that we saw the winner walk to the stage right past us, very uplifting. I felt like I knew them all so well after only 3 days, the rest of the Aussies were also great people, only mistake – didn’t take you up on the Oktoberfest option! Lock me in for next year.
Thanks so much for all your help in making this happen – very grateful,
Geoff Couper – October 2012 – Berlin Marathon
