  • Age group and ranking method

    Age groups:

    High school, male
    1995 and younger

    High school, female

    1995 and younger
    Primary school, male
    2002 - 2005

    There will be no individual ranking. Every school can nominate as many pupils as wanted. Ranking will be distinguished between female and male pupils: The runtimes of 10 successively finishing male or female pupils will be added and result in the total time of that team. In case of single participants, different school teams form a finisher-team.

    Seperate ranking:

    Sport academies (devoted to athletics) and teams of schools that are not located in Berlin will be ranked seperately.

    Results and awards:

    Every participant will receive a mini-MARATHON Shirt, a certificate and a medal. The best Berlin school teams will be honoured at an award ceremony on October 15rd, 2015.

  • Hints for parents and tutors

    Since the start and finish area will be widely cordoned off, there will not be any parking for busses or cars on-site. We recommend to use public transport instead.

    Schools may authorize parents, teachers and tutors to supervise their school team.

    Because of safety reasons, we do not allow parents to enter the finish area. Teachers and authorized supervizors of the school team will receive one acceditation per registered school team.
