Following 2003, the grand finale will again be in Berlin

Since the year 2000, the real,- BERLIN MARATHON has been part of the World Inline Cup (WIC), the highest-ranking race series in the world. The marathon distinguishes itself not only through the highest number of participants, but also qualitatively through its extraordinary entrants.

Through its status as “Finale of the World Inline Cup“, the real,- BERLIN MARATHON has received its greatest up-valuation to the most important competition in the area of inline skating worldwide. It was recently decided that after its debut in 2003, that the finale should again take place in Berlin in 2004.

The WIC will be presenting an exhilarating “Skate Village“ in the finish area, as well as a season closing party together with the “After-Skate Party“ for the rest of the participants. Thus, in addition to marking the end of the athletic season, there will also be a big season-end party for all of the skaters. It will definitely be an emotional and eventful weekend.

Coni Altherr is also the organiser of the World Inline Cup (WIC)

Coni Altherr and the Iguana Think Tank AG, which also created the Swiss Inline Cup (SIC), have been managing the World Cup since 2003. The successful SIC concept is being implemented worldwide. The focus of the efforts in the inline sport worldwide has been especially the collaboration of three elements “elite sport, general sport, and lifestyle“. The World Inline Cup is to be developed step by step together with the world association FIRS.

The defending champions are Frenchman Pascal Briand of Team Saab Salomon World and Jessica Smith of Team Kia Verducci International. Two “Top Class“ events are still coming up: September 18 in Duluth/USA and the grand finale as part of the 8th real,- BERLIN MARATHON for Inline Skaters on September 25. Of the 6 Top Class races that have taken place, Massimiliano Presti of Team Fila International A has won three, making him a clear leader in the World Cup ranking for the men.

The situation for the women is considerably more exciting. Theresa Cliff of Team Kia Verducci International lies slightly in the lead. In six races there have already been five different champions.
