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.
 


RUN FOR JOY by

BMW BERLIN-MARATHON 2023

[Translate to English:]

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.

TOM


Superpower: VERSATILITY


In a race over 42.195 km, you have to constantly adapt to new conditions. As an actor, Tom's job is to slip into new roles, be flexible and adapt to a new setting every time. Tom shows this versatility not only on the film set, but also in the videos on his TikTok and Instagram channel. Knowing how to put this skill to work for you while running instantly makes the marathon feel much shorter.

MARI


Superpower: EXPERIENCE


For people like Mari, running is a fascination, a hobby, a profession. As a sports psychologist, she not only draws on a wealth of scientific experience but has also been on the starting line at the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON several times. She knows the finisher feeling, but also knows how to deal with setbacks and is therefore an inspiration for all runners who can't get enough of running.
