The organisers of the 28th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON have chosen the slogan


for this year’s event as a sign of their feelings about the present

world political situation.

At the time of announcing the decision to continue with the staging of the

event, with over 37,000 participants from 85 countries, athletes were also

requested to donate to a fund for the dependents of those New York fire

fighters and police who lost their lives in the recent tragic events, and to

wear a mourning band on their arm.

This run is going to be a run for peace, a peaceful demonstration against

the terrorist attack.

Our reaction is in line with that of the organisers of the big US marathons

in Chicago, (7th October) and New York (4th November), whose events are also to

be similar demonstrations.
