Act Fast For Berlin Half

Berlin Half Marathon

With last year's event selling out before December, race organisers are urging those considering entering the 2014 Berlin Half Marathon to do so as soon as possible. The race will be held on 30 March 2014 with around 30,000 people expected to take part.

Like its marathon counterpart, the Berlin Half route is fast and flat. Starting and finishing on Karl-Marx-Allee, a monumental socialist boulevard in the eastern part of Berlin, the course passes several landmarks including grand buildings on the Unter den Linden boulevard, the Brandenburg Gate, the vast Tiergarten park, the Berlin Victory Column, the magnificent Charlottenburg Palace, and the Kurf├╝rstendamm boulevard.

Tiffany, who competed last year, said of the race: "The route is nice because there are lots of beautiful and historical sites to see along the way. And the entire experience is just unforgettable. The city is so rich in history that it's hard not to get caught up by it."
