To the members of the BERLIN-MARATHON Jubilee-Club
Jubilee Club Information 2/2005 – On its way to 1,500 members
Invitation to the 32nd real,- BERLIN-MARATHON on September 25, 2005
Dear BERLIN-MARATHON Jubilee-Club Members,
Following our letter and invitation to the 25th Bewag BERLIN HALF
MARATHON on April 3, 2005, now the 32nd real,- BERLIN MARATHON on
September 25, 2005 is slowly approaching.
The “little brother“ of the BERLIN-MARATHON has developed well, and a total of 18,331 athletes from 69 countries participated in all of the competitions of the BERLIN HALF MARATHON. This year’s BERLIN MARATHON will also record an increase in participation. The running scene continues to progress, and we as the organisers are very pleased about this.
Continuing to grow
The BERLIN-MARATHON Jubilee Club is also continuing to grow, and we
are slowly approaching the 1,500 mark. 1,467 members from 14 countries,
including 99 women and 16 wheelchair competitors, have thus far
registered in our club. The new members who joined after March 17, 2005
are listed by name in the appendix. We would like to cordially welcome
them into our club!
69 new registrations for 2005
We have thus far received 69 new registrations for the club, and all of those applying have successfully finished the BERLIN MARATHON 9 times. On September 25, 2005, they will hopefully all successfully cross the finish on the Straße des 17. Juni after passing through the Brandenburg Gate. We are planning on honouring the new members on stage after the race.
As you most likely already know, the limit this year was raised to
40,000 participants - which also already has been reached. No more
general participation will be allowed, but club members can still
register until August 26, 2005.
Please also not that due to numerous construction sites in Berlin there will be a few minor changes in the course. The speed of the course will not suffer from the changes, however, so no excuses for being slower this year!
For the second time - after Naoko Takahashi - a reigning Olympic champion will participate. Mizuki Noguchi from Japan hopes to improve on her best time in Berlin—which already lies at 2:21:18!
