Run For Joy
RUN FOR JOY TO BECOME A BERLIN LEGEND
- BMW AND SCC AWAKEN YOUR SUPERPOWERS -
This year, RUN FOR JOY to become a BERLIN LEGEND is all about "SUPERPOWER OF JOY". We want to prove that everyone has what it takes to finish the BMW BERLIN MARATHON and become a #berlinlegend. All it takes is our special skills, which we often use as a matter of course in everyday life, but don't transfer to running as naturally. Get inspired by our four protagonists and their personal superpowers with which they want to finish the BMW BERLIN MARATHON 2023.
It all comes down to that one day. The months of preparation have already pushed all the runners to their physical and mental limits. Our protagonists Krizzl, Mari, Tom, and Amanal have also gone through an emotional journey on their way to becoming a Berlin Legend. They are the perfect example for the almost 50,000 runners who have entered the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON 2023 with very different goals in order to complete the 42.195km together. It's not just about national and world records, it's also about personal bests or finishing a marathon for the first time, it's about the special bond between runners and the feeling of accomplishing something truly special together and, of course, the joy of running.
Run a marathon with 3 months of preparation?
Definitely a challenge, yet not an impossible one!
The basis is a solid training plan and the discipline to follow it.
Our amateurs Tom and Krizzl have found a coach for this at their side, who supports them and provides them with the necessary know-how.
Philipp Pflieger is a former professional marathon runner and multiple BMW BERLIN-MARATHON finisher. His marathon best time is 2:12:15 h.
With his expertise, he will be coaching Krizzl and Tom this year, who will be on the starting line of a marathon for the first time.
Together with them he has worked out a training plan to prepare them for the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON in only 3 months.
The training plan is set, the running shoes are laced up and our two newbies are doing their best to integrate the runs into their daily routine.
You want to know how Tom and Krizzl are preparing and if they will make the marathon?

Our marathon newbies Krizzl and Tom are not only able to learn a lot from the experienced runners, but also inspire and motivate other marathoners with their skills and their approach to the race. Krizzl and Amanal met in Berlin in preparation for the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON and immersed themselves in each other's world. In the process, they both discovered exciting parallels between dancing and running.
