Two and a half weeks to go

We are quickly approaching the season highlight. Use the next two and a half weeks to enjoy the wind in your hair on a few final relaxed training rides – with a helmet on, of course! Remember, helmets are required at the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON!

As usual, the Inline Village at the Expo BERLIN VITAL will open up two days before the race. The entire inline scene will get together starting on September 13 at former airport Tempelhof. There will be plenty going on over the marathon weekend to. Come see for yourself – we’ll be sharing all of the important dates, promotions, and activities with you in the coming weeks.

Have fun in your final phase of preparation – and we’ll see you in Berlin!

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

Every participant must pick up his or her race materials in person at the Expo BERLIN VITAL 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 skater; 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, 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 2018 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON.
  • Exchanging bib 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, please pick up your race kit on Thursday or Friday. Otherwise, plan on longer queues if you come to the Sport and Health Expo BERLIN VITAL on Saturday. The bib number pick-up for inline skaters closes on Saturday at noon.


For Saturday afternoon, please note

You will receive a clear plastic bag and a sticker with your bib number to mark your bag for the clothing drop-off. No backpacks, suitcases or other bags are allowed in the start area. ONLY the clothing drop-off bag above is allowed. Any bags left unaccompanied at the venue will be quickly removed.

Please note that there are only three entrances to the pre-start area at the Reichstag lawn (access from the east, north and west). The event venue will be fenced off extensively, so please take note of the venue map: “Entrance to start area”.

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."
