Another landmark reached by the BERLIN-MARATHON Jubilee-Club
Soon there will be 1,000 members!
2002-08-12Before too long, the BERLIN-MARATHON Jubilee Club will have one more reason for celebrations. Insiders know that for many years now the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON has been honouring all marathon runners who have finished ten or more times in Berlin.
Though it has been made known repeatedly among marathon participants, not everyone has heard of the Jubilee Club before. This is why every day we receive new ‘applications’ from marathon runners who are submitting copies of their finishers’ diplomas for proof.
At present, the club’s membership has risen to 984, and probably very soon the 1,000 milestone will be achieved. This is why we urge “old hands“ to mail us their diplomas. Otherwise, the mark will surely be surpassed with the next edition of the race on 29th September 2002.
So far, there are 35 runners registered with us, who have completed the BERLIN-MARATHON nine times. We hope to single out and welcome all of them at the finish line on September 29, so all new members can be presented to the crowd right there on the victors’ rostrum and receive their diploma of honour and the coveted green Jubilee Club tee-shirt.
So far, the membership has been recruited from 906 male runners, 66 women, and 12 wheel chair athletes. The altogether 984 members are from 14 different countries. The undisputed “king“, with 28 marathon finishes, is Bernd Hübner (Berlin), Christl Heine being “his queen“ with 22 successful participations.
The ranking continues:
