What other costs are involved?
There is a £20 registration fee to secure one of our guaranteed places. After you’ve paid the registration fee, you’ll need to organise your own flights and accommodation. You’ll also need to pay for any food and expenses while you’re in Berlin.
Is my place guaranteed?
If you selected ‘Secure a guaranteed charity place’ and paid a £20 registration fee, you have a guaranteed place with us. We’ll get in touch to get some more details from you soon, which we’ll need to complete your registration.
How do I know my start time?
You will be sent a start card via email in early September from the race organisers.
What’s the Expo?
This is where you’ll pick up your starting documents, including your race number and timing chip. The expo will host more than 190 national and international exhibitors and offer everything related to sports performance, functional wear, nutrition, sports medicine, active vacations and much more.
Do I have to go to the Expo?
You must attend the Expo to collect your race number and timing chip. You’ll be sent a start card via email in early September, which you take to the Expo along with your ID to collect your starting documents.
Where should I stay?
There are various offers available at the Berlin Marathon website. They show the prices and distance from the start line.
What other plans do you have for the weekend?
We’ll be organising drinks on Saturday night, cheer points on the day and then celebration drinks on Sunday evening. You’ll get more details about these closer to the event.
Why doesn’t my name appear on the participant list on the Berlin marathon website?
Your name will show on the participant list on their website once we have completed your registration. To do this, we need some more details from you (previous personal best time, emergency contact details etc.) so look out for our email about this. It’s quite a long process to complete your registration, so don’t worry if your name doesn’t show for a while.
