Personal pick-up of your race kit at the BERLIN VITAL Expo

Every participant must pick up his or her race materials in person at the BERLIN VITAL Expo at former airport Tempelhof which is easy to reach via public transportation (subway U6, stop at Platz der Luftbrücke). The expo opens at 2 pm on Thursday, September 13 and runs until 7 pm on Saturday, September 15.
Please note the following:
+ Race numbers must be picked up by each individual runner; group pick-ups are not possible, and power of attorneys are not accepted either.
+ The start card is required, as well as a photo ID (personal ID, passport, driver’s licence) for pick-up.
+ Every participant will receive a wristband at pick-up, which you will need in order to enter the start area and must wear until you have exited the finish area. The durable, comfortable material also makes the wristband a great souvenir of the BMW BERLIN MARATHON 2017.
+ Exchanging race numbers is not allowed and will lead to disqualification.


Be smart and pick up your race kit on Thursday or Friday

As experience shows, many participants, especially those from out of town, come on Saturday between 11 am and 2 pm to pick up their race materials. If you are local or already in town on Thursday or Friday, please pick up your race kits on Thursday or Friday. Otherwise, plan on longer queues if you come to the BERLIN VITAL Sport and Health Expo on Saturday.


Check our participant booklet online

In order to make your stay in Berlin more comfortable and to answer all questions which may pop up we strongly recommend to read our participant info booklet which can be found on our website.

TCL is passionate about sports

A message from TCL:

TCL is passionate about sports. Frédéric Langin, General Manager of Sales and Marketing in Europe and marathon enthusiast explains why TCL and BMW BERLIN-MARATHON are a perfect fit: "Having practiced athletics and rugby when I was younger I ran my first marathon when I was 42 years old. Sharing this moment with many like-minded people was an inspiring experience. That's also what I like about the marathon in Berlin. It has been one of my favorite marathons so far and this year will be my fourth time running it. The city, the people and the entire atmosphere are unique. What connects TCL as a consumer electronics company and the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is our mutual passion for sports and the believe in the power of sports bringing people together."
