Take a trip to Germany and run through one of the world's most iconic cities as you take on this marathon.

The BMW Berlin Marathon

As one of the six Abbott World Marathon Majors, the BMW Berlin Marathon is an incredibly popular event in a historic city with great culture, food and attractions. Starting and finishing at the city's famous Brandenburg Gate, you'll take in the city sights, including the Reichstag, Berliner Dom, and the Berlin Cathedral.

This marathon boasts a fast course where runners' personal bests are regularly broken, along with the world record finish time achieved by Eliud Kipchoge in 2022. Can you set a personal best in 2023 or simply just enjoy the vibe and have fun along the streets of Berlin?

Every child needs a hero. By taking on this challenge, you'll be doing something extraordinary for seriously ill children and young people from across the UK.
