New location for both the start and finish

The start and finish area is now located on Strasse des 17. Juni, between the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and the Federal Chancellery. The start will take place on Strasse des 17. Juni about 400 metres in front of the Siegessäule (Victory Column). The course has not changed much: only at 5.5 km around Kaiserdamm and Neue Kantstraße and on the last section from Leipziger Strasse via Gendarmenmarkt and Unter den Linden to the finish line, which is located just 150 metres after you pass through the Brandenburg Gate.


The 2019 GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON magazine is now online

While there are still a few days until the firing of the starting shot, you can get psyched for the big event with the 2019 GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON programme booklet. On 68 pages, you will find tips for runners, inline skaters and spectators, information about the supporting programme, the BERLIN VITAL Expo, as well as everything you need to know about the elite field of Germany's biggest spring race. Click here for the online version. Every participant can also pick up a free paper copy at the BERLIN VITAL Expo.

Running or skating for the good cause

A message from Generali:

Support with your race "The Human Safety Net", a global movement of Generali to help disadvantaged people. The programs address societal challenges with the aim of promoting human potential. Become part of this movement and support The Human Safety Net by skating through the donation gate at KM 19.5 at Mohrenstrasse and donate 2,- Euros for three selected social projects in Berlin. Here you’ll find more about the social projects of The Human Safety Net.


The Recode Running Festival

A message from adidas:

Runners from across the globe are forging a new urban running culture, defined by bold creative expression and brought together through community. These runners are pushing the limits on how far we can take the sport. To celebrate this adidas is launching the Recode Running Festival. It will present community-based-films which will showcase the unique personalities, cultures and styles emerging in this new running era. Click here to purchase your ticket for the event at Kino International on 5th April.


Motivation boost for the final stretch

A message from ERDINGER Alkoholfrei:

21.1 km are a real sporting challenge. Toward the end of the race, legs can start to hurt as stamina runs low. The ERDINGER Alkoholfrei PowerZone is there to help by giving all participants an extra motivation boost for the final stage of the race. With a professional performance combining crowd cheers and hot beats, MC Mike-Mike, DJane Lemongrass and a cheerleader formation give everything they’ve got to drive the runners and skaters on.
