Correction: Lisbon Half Marathon not 40 metres short
2004-04-01Editors of www.berlin-marathon.com apologize for a mistake that occurred in a recent press release which was published on our web site. It was stated that the Lisbon Half Marathon was 40 metres short. The race was won by Rodgers Rop last Sunday in 59:49 minutes. This happened due to a translation mistake by a third person involved. In the correct German version it read that the Lisbon course has an overall drop of 40 metres. This is a well known fact, while of course we all know that there is no speculation of a short course concerning Lissabon’s Half Marathon.
Organisers and editors of the Bewag BERLIN HALF MARATHON, which will be staged next Sunday, apologize for this mistake. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused to organisers of the Lisabon Half Marathon.
