Race the world-record course on this four-day trip to the German Capital

Berlin is one of Europe's great cities and, in marathon terms, its reputation as a fantastic course precedes it. Two years ago, Eliud Kipchoge ran an incredible 2:01:39 at the event, demolishing the world record by 78 seconds. That was the 11th time the German capital had seen the men's or women's record broken on its streets. Now, you have the chance to follow in those celebrated footsteps on this exclusive four-day trip.

The highlight of your stay will be the exciting race, the route of which will take you past famous landmarks before you reach the spectacular finish line at the iconic Brandenburg Gate. As part of the tour, you are guaranteed a place in the race, which will see you line up in a field that could include the likes of Guye Adola, Leul Gebrselassie, Gladys Cherono and Vivian Cheruiyot.

Staying in the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz, you'll be close to the heart of the vibrant city to experience the thrilling atmosphere as over 40,000 runners gather for one of the highlights of the international running calendar.

Throughout the weekend, you'll be in the hands of members of the Runner's World team and our expert travel partners, Sports Tours International, who will ensure you have the best build-up possible to a race you will never forget.
