How to supply your own refreshments

No one knows your body better than you do. You can drop off your own refreshments to pick up at the stations during the marathon. Just write down your name, race number and the refreshment point on a container (not made of glass!) and hand them in by 7:45 am at the stand “Own Refreshments.”

 You will find the “Own Refreshments” booth here: Entrance Gate 5, Otto-von-Bismarck-Allee.

Lichtenauer Mineralwasser

  You'll find the Lichtenauer Hot Spot at Olivaer Platz after passing kilometer 33.

 After completing the race runners will find a 0.5-liter bottle of Lichtenauer Mineralwasser Pur in their finishing bags.

Lichtenauer Mineralwasser Pur refreshes as natural mineral water without carbonization. Its mineralization is soft and harmonic by nature and provides the unique milde taste of Lichtenauer Mineralwasser. Being non-carbonated the type “Pur” is beneficial for the digestive system – especially for runners. The Lichtenauer mineral water comes from well-protected deep underground springs in the Erzgebirge basin in the German country of Saxony.

Lichtenauer Mineralwasser types:

  • Mineralwasser Pur non carbonated
  • Mineralwasser Medium medium carbonated
  • Mineralwasser Spritzig high carbonated

 You can find more information about the Lichtenauer Mineralwasser here.

„It’s Time to Give Back“ – Give back your re-usable cup

 Do your part to protect the environment!

Every participant will receive a reusable cup filled with water at the supply point at kilometre 38. After a few meters, the empty cup can be thrown into boxes specifically provided for this purpose. Those who miss the chance to return the little blue cup during the race will have the opportunity to return it at the adidas Brand Center in Tauentzienstraße, at the adidas Running store in Münzstraße or at the adidas Runbase Berlin in Schleusenufer in the days following the marathon, thus making it available again for future running events.

‘It’s time to give back’ – adidas and SCC calls on you to return your cups to the cycle and thereby contribute to protecting the environment. The sustainable idea can only be guaranteed if the reusable cups are used again at the next run.
