Training and health tips for the final weeks

The closer you get to the big competition day, the more specific your training should be. This includes preparing for your food intake during the race. Even if you may not have felt a real need to eat during your workouts, you should try to get your body used to processing food while running. The availability of energy plays a crucial role in successfully completing a marathon. While you will have plenty of energy reserves stored in fats, your carbohydrate reserves are limited, and in general will be used up after 30 kilometres. Another challenge is fluid loss, which also limits performance and well-being. For these reasons, a well-planned carbohydrate and fluid intake is the “half the rent” on marathon day. Test now how your body handles gels, energy bars, iso drinks, bananas, etc, while running. You will find detailed information about the refreshments provided on the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON website.


Pick up your race documents IN PERSON!

Each participant must personally pick up his race documents at the MARATHON EXPO in the hangars of the former Tempelhof Airport. The fair opens on Thursday, September 26th at  2 pm and closes at 7 pm on Saturday, Sept. 28th.Please note the following important info:

  1. The race documents must be picked up by each participant IN PERSON; it is not possible to pick up the race kits for groups or with power of attorney.
  2. You must present your start passport as well as a photo ID (identity card, passport, driver’s license)
  3. You will receive a soft wristband when you pick up your race number that you must have to enter the start area on the day of the event. Please only remove this access wristband after leaving the finish area. The durable, comfortable material also makes the band a nice memento.
  4. Transferring a race number will lead to disqualification!

Pick up your race dokuments as EARLY as possible!

The greatest number of participants tend to pick up their race documents on Saturday between 11 am and 2 pm. Save your legs and nerves and avoid this time window. Those who come to the MARATHON EXPO on Thursday or Friday can avoid the lines and can shop in peace at the fair.
