  • 20 years AVON RUNNING Womens Run,
  • 25 years Team Marathon,
  • 30 years real,- BERLIN MARATHON and
  • 40 years Berliner Cross Country Race

Started in 1964, the Berlin Cross Country Run in the Grunewald Forest (and on the Teufelsberg Mountain), is the "grandmother" of widespread running and jogging for the general public and mark its beginning and success.

Since the large running events were started in 1964, Berlin has established running as a sport for the masses and as a health potion for young and old and has written national and world wide sport history.

A multifaceted event year for SCC RUNNING with 17 running events and 108,439 participants (95,885 the previous year) successfully came to a close on December 31, 2002 with the 27th Berlin New Years Eve Run.

From the 1st Berlin Cross Country Run on November 8, 1964 to the 27th Berlin New Years Eve Run on December 31, 2002, Horst Milde, with his large team from SCC RUNNING, has organised 329 events with a total of 1,139,913 participants.

This will continue on in the anniversary year! On this Saturday there are only: "3 more months until the 23rd Bewag BERLINER HALF MARATHON" on April 6.

Preparatory training is offered every Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Tiergarten park at the corner of Hofjägerallee at the Siegessäule (Victory Column), in co-operation with the SFB Running Movement.

"The year 2003, with its numerous running and training opportunities and with the anniversary running events, is geared to offer the Berlin population even more attractive running events and to make their "mouths water" to become active runners themselves", according to Milde.
