This coming Saturday, May 10, 2003, marks the end of reduced fee registration
for runners, power walkers, wheelchair athletes and inline skaters for the
anniversary marathon on September 27-28, 2003. Participants can still register
for the low fee of € 50.00 with SCC-RUNNING –also online—for
the double event on Saturday and Sunday. After May 10th, the registration fee
will go up to € 70.00. To date, the organisers have received well over
34,000 registrations from over 75 countries.
The new course through the city centre of Berlin and the finish near the
Brandenburg Gate have created even more interest for runners to participate in
the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON than in previous years. The organisers have limited
the number of runners to 35,000 and 12,000 skaters. The 15th real,- MINI
MARATHON (4.2195 km) for the youth of the Berlin schools expects an additional
8,000 – 9,000 participants.
Registration for the MINI MARATHON can be made via the sport teachers in the
schools at the Senatsverwaltung für Schulsport und Bewegungserziehung.
