Welcome to the Club!
To all new and existing members of the BERLIN MARATHON Jubilee Club.
2001-10-28In the wake of the successful 28th real,- BERLIN MARATHON on 30 September 2001 the Jubilee Club, too, can present a proud track record:
54 participants of this run successfully crossed the finishing line – now relocated to Tauentzienstrasse – for the tenth time.
The majority of new members were presented with their certificates and the coveted green Jubilee T-shirts right away during the presentation ceremony on Breitscheidplatz next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.
All other “newcomers” received their hard-won “trophies” by post sent to their home addresses. The booth of the BERLIN MARATHON Jubilee Club during the Marathon Show at the Radio Tower Exhibition Centre provided an ideal meeting place for our members.
Bernd Hübner and Head of Unit Thomas Bobbert renewed old acquaintances and added a host of new pictures of our members to the Jubilee Archives. We have posted the pictures and information about our Jubilee members on the real,- BERLIN MARATHON web site. And, of course, the Club’s range of souvenirs together with the products offered for sale by the Sports Club also proved very popular indeed.
BMJC record holder Bernd Hübner completed his 28th BERLIN MARATHON the following day.
Klaus Feierabend, a running priest and by now well renowned for his ecumenical evening service at Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church on the night before the run, is also a very successful participant who this year completed his 21st BERLIN MARATHON.
Having participated ten times, Dr. Reiner Pilz, who is in charge of wheelchair participants, is now also a proud member of the Jubilee Club. We would like to congratulate all other members on their participation in Berlin and a successful completion of the run.
The number of members has risen to a total of 904 (854 men, 58 women, 12 wheelchair users). 74 of them come from the following 14 countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, China, Denmark, Finland, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Every so often participants approach the organisers’ office for results achieved decades ago because they lost their certificates or other records of their participation. And indeed, the long searches through the result lists prove successful as in the case of one participant who only last week proved that he had indeed 20 successful BERLIN MARATHONS under his belt.
