There are now good marking points for whomever would like to try out the course
of the anniversary marathon on September 28, 2003. The starting line is exactly
2.76m in front of "Lantern 665" on the Strasse des 17. Juni in the
direction of the Victory Column, near the "Kleinen Stern", which is
the axis to the Bellevue Palace, the seat of the German president. The finish
line is at the left "tank chain" of "Tank 300" of the
Soviet memorial on the Strasse des 17. Juni - about 300 metres from the
Brandenburg Gate. The AIMS/IAAF surveyor, Siegfried Menzel, who is also
responsible for the pictures, has measured the course.
Here is the whole course for the runners, wheelchair competitors, and power
walkers for Sunday, September 28, 3, 2003.
Start and Finish (Ziel)
We will be publishing the course for the skaters soon for Saturday,
September 27, 2003.
