NEW in Berlin: Night running with John Kunkeler – every Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. sharp!
Get to know running Berlin by night.
As so often, John Kunkeler is responsible for another new insider tip for the running scene.
John Kunkeler is not only the head of the RBB Running Movement (every Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Siegessäule (Victory Column) in Hofjägerallee in the Tiergarten Park), but he is also responsible for determining and surveying the new courses for the real,- BERLIN- MARATHON and the Vattenfall BERLIN HALF MARATHON and is untiring and innovative in his many other activities for the sport of running in Berlin.
Musical activities at the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON
The numerous musical activities with approximately 60 bands and
choirs along the course of the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON are primarily due
to his efforts. It is not without cause that he (together with Stefan
Berker) runs the jazz club "Kunstfabrik Schlot", where much of the
music is at home.
Both men are marathon runners, and together they are the fastest marathon pair from one jazz club, worldwide. It is thus understandable that John Kunkeler’s newest initiative
is a night run he leads, starting out from his jazz club.
Successful since October
He has created a new successful running option for night-running enthusiasts:
Night Run Training, every Tuesday, meeting point at 10:30 p.m. at the
Edison Courtyards in front of the jazz club "Kunstfabrik-Schlot" (with a large parking lot) at Invalidenstrasse 117 in Berlin-Mitte.
The run goes for about one hour along a well lit course. The slowest
runner determines the pace. One’s perception is different in the dark —
it seems easier!
Condition: If it is raining at 10 p.m., the run is cancelled!
"Kunstfabrik Schlot" is the place to be in Berlin
The jazz club "Kunstfabrik Schlot" has developed over the past few
years into one popular address for the running scene, due to marathon
runners John Kunkeler
and Stefan Berker and to Kunkeler’s many activities with SCC-RUNNING. The club has often been a meeting point for the RBB Running Movement, and "RUNNERS
WORLD" has invited numerous guests from the running world for an annual evening meeting during the BERLIN-MARATHON at the club.
The 16th Literature Marathon took place there during the 32nd real,- BERLIN-MARATHON 2005. Under the direction of Dr. Detlef Kuhlmann, the authors Iris Gehrmann and Robert Hartmann read from their works. Cabaret, close-up comedy, jazz, and running seem to have come together in a successful mix here.
