Course map 2016
The street blockings are part of the new interactive map of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON.
As it is not always easy to provide adequate refreshments to the inline skaters during the marathon, we provide you with a water bottle. Please fill it before the race and carry it with you. Emergency refreshments will be available at the 21, 30, and 36K points.
The refreshment stands will all be on the right-hand side. Please throw your empty cups off to the side of the road to help the skaters behind you. Please help to protect the environment and do not throw any cups, bottles, or waste in the rivers.
Drink early enough, especially if it is warm.
Timekeeping is done exclusively with the ChampionChip!
The ChampionChip is a small plastic transponder that has to be fastened on your skate (no metal contact!) and will measure your personal race time.
You will only get your net time if you roll across the timekeeping mats at the start and finish. You must roll over all of the
mats along the course.
Intermediate time controls: you will be disqualified if you do not pass the intermediate time controls.
Medical care and health check
The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON medical team works in cooperation with a first aid organization to monitor the course and provide medical care as soon as necessary. The medical staff on duty has the right and responsibility to remove any participants from the race, who are demonstrating signs of injury or excessive strain.
All individuals, choosing to participate in endurance sports, should undergo a medical examination at least once a year. The completion of a 10 km race, half marathon or marathon is not always an accurate indicator of good physical health. It is recommended that all entrants receive a physical examination prior to competing in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON.
