We are deeply saddened by the horrendous events at a Christmas market in Berlin. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family members of those killed, and we hope for a speedy recovery for the many injured.
For the fourth time in a row, Belgian skater Bart Swings once again won the BMW BERLIN MARATHON Inline Skating. And for the third time, Manon Kamminga from the Netherlands was at the top of the podium. On a perfect sunny day, 5,445 inline skaters celebrated the 20th anniversary edition of the BMW BERLIN MARATHON Inline Skating – cheered on by 250,000 spectators along the course.
Why only skate, if you can run too? About 100 participants have registered this year to compete in both events, double starting in the inline race on Saturday afternoon and in the running marathon on Sunday morning. One of them is 41-year-old Jorge Botero, from Columbia, a former pro skater and one of the most successful inline skaters in the world.

Now or never… Only four more days until the registration deadline for the 2016 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON Inline Skating
The preparations for the 43rd BMW BERLIN-MARATHON Inline Skating on 24th September are running at full speed. In four and a half weeks about 5000 skaters will be expected in the German capital to capture the city on wheels.
Once again, one of the greatest highlights of the year for skaters is the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. On September 24 – the day before the running marathon – the city belongs to the skaters: 42.195 car-free kilometres through the capital, 250,000 spectators along the course and packed grandstands along the final stretch behind the Brandenburg Gate.
