The Berlin Marathon is one of the six most important marathons worldwide. More than 40,000 amateur and professional athletes gather each year in the capital to master the 42.195 km. The route leads through the historic center of Berlin, past the most important historical and cultural monuments. After starting on the road on 17 June, the runners pass the Victory Column in the direction of Ernst-Reuter-Platz. About a northern loop, the route continues to the TV tower. In Schöneberg, the runners have the first half of the course behind them. After a detour through the southern quarter, it goes over the Kurfürstendamm and Potsdamer Platz for the final spurt to the Brandenburg Gate. Although the marathon takes place since 1974, but only run since 1990, the runners on the home stretch the Brandenburg Gate. At that time a memorable moment, because in the previously divided city this was not possible. Today, the marathon in Berlin – along with those in Tokyo, Boston, New York, Chicago, and London – is part of the World Marathon Majors. In this separate competition, the best performances of all runners from the six races will be determined. The athletes are fired by hundreds of thousands of spectators who line up along the way.
