The real,- BERLIN-MARATHON will offer a wide variety of live information along
with the inline skating and running events on their website
www.berlin-marathon.com. On the days before, during an after the marathon
weekend, the Berlin internet server will likely record over a million
pages visited. The internet preparation for the 2-day event has
already been going on for many weeks.
Alone on Sunday afternoon, several hundred thousand internet pages will be
visited. Most important for those stopping in is one thing: the participant
results, finding out who came in how fast at www.berlin-marathon.com.
Even during the race one can follow the exact progress of a specific
participant. That is made possible by the Championchip timekeeping, worn by
each participant on his/her foot.
After the race one can print out a downloadable preliminary certificate. In
addition to the results, much more is offered online at the real,-
BERLIN-MARATHON, including numerous live activities.
Since the beginning of September one can once again (for the 5th
time) register for the SMS results service.
Participants can submit up to three cell numbers and one email address
to receive news of the finishing time immediately after the finish has been
crossed. This way friends and family at home can find out how
successful the participant was. The average time of the messaging is three
seconds after crossing the finish line.
Parallel to the race there will also be a live ticker with
news of the race by journalists at the press centre.
Various live stream images will be made available by RBB to give a visual
impression of the happenings. Photographers will be underway taking
pictures along the course. These will also be available online during the
