results, finding out who came in how fast at www.berlin-marathon.com.
Even during the race one can follow the exact progress of a specific participant. That is made possible by the Championchip timekeeping, worn by each participant on his/her foot.
After the race one can print out a downloadable preliminary certificate. In addition to the results, much more is offered online at the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON, including numerous live activities.
Since the beginning of September one can once again (for the 5th
time) register for the SMS results service.
Participants can submit up to three cell numbers and one email address to receive news of the finishing time immediately after the finish has been crossed. This way friends and family at home can find out how successful the participant was. The average time of the messaging is three seconds after crossing the finish line.
Parallel to the race there will also be a live ticker with
