Preparations are of course already well underway for the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON (incl. Inline Skating) 2021. We are excitedly looking forward to finally being back at the starting line with you in Berlin.
Since your health and the health of all participants is our absolute priority, we are currently working on a comprehensive safety and hygiene concept. Depending on the pandemic situation at the time of the event, we reserve the right to ask for your vaccination status or proof of a negative SARS-Coronavirus-2-test.
Further details will be communicated in due time.
Depending on the current pandemic situation at the time of the event, we reserve the right to ask for vaccination status or proof of a negative SARS-Coronavirus-2-test for your participation.
Should it be necessary, there may be on-site testing (more information will be announced in due time). Furthermore, additional measures, such as wearing a mask, may be required. We will be providing updated information on this before and during the event.

Yes, if you are interested, you can postpone your participation until 2022, because special situations require good solutions. Besides a guaranteed race entry for next year, we also grant you a discount with the goodwill offer. We will completely refund all additional services booked for this year, exceptions are the cancellation insurance and donations. You can contact us in this matter via our contact form.
If you registered with a group (tour operator, charity partner, club or company) please contact your contact person for details.
If you get COVID-19 or if you are in quarantine, a refund of your registration fee is only possible if you have taken out an insurance policy covering this.
If it is impossible for you to travel to the event because, for example, entry into Germany is banned for your home country, a refund of your registration fee is unfortunately not possible. We can only refund your registration fee if we have to officially cancel the event.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation, the GENERALI BREAKFAST FUN, the post-race party, as well as the Pasta Lounge will not take place.
All participants who booked the Pasta Lounge will be contacted by us via e-mail, and we will refund the amount paid (details here).
The Bambini Run will only be available as a virtual variant.
We are also currently looking into a possible virtual solution for the mini-marathon.
We hope to be able to hold the ecumenical marathon prayer and the literature marathon under the regulations in place at that time.
The MARATHON EXPO 2021 will take place, but in a reduced fashion that will consider all of the health and safety measures.
Further information will follow.
This year’s start and finish areas as well as the course will be very similar to previous events, with the start and finish on the boulevard Strasse des 17. Juni, between the Brandenburg Gate and the “Kleiner Stern” roundabout. More detailed information, including special conditions (e.g. a possible masking requirement), will be available very soon.
Unfortunately, we can not offer a self-refreshment service along the course this year. This is related to the compliance with hygiene rules.
However, there will be plenty of refreshments suitable for athletes along the route.
We developed a far-reaching hygiene concept in cooperation with the authorities.
At the moment, we are putting all our efforts into making sure that the event will take place- which we are assuming.
However, we cannot look in the future and predict the development of the Corona pandemic. With our hygiene concept, we are preparing with the involvement of many experts so that the event can take place. Nevertheless, we also have to take into account all eventualities regarding the development of the pandemic. Many hotel portals offer the possibility of free cancellation.
We have also included spectators in our hygiene concept, with various options for visiting the event. There may be some impairments on certain points along the course or in the finish area.
