Over the past few days all participants in the 30th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON on
September 27-28, 2003 have received mail with the headline “Important
Documents“ on the envelope. The much sought-after confirmation of
registration with the announcement of the race numbers has now been sent to all
participants in 87 countries. 35,000 runners and 9,000 inline skaters can look
forward to being part of the anniversary marathon in Berlin.
3,432 kilograms of printed paper had to be “moved“ and packed by
Eight different papers are included in the letter, beginning with the time
plan and supporting programme for the marathon week. Technical details, as well
as information on how the participants can get to the race number distribution
in the fair grounds at the Radio Tower (Funkturm) in halls 21- 23 and how to
use the CHIP, are supplied. Of course, a sketch of the new race course and
information on the start of the Breakfast Run from the Charlottenburg Palace to
the Olympic stadium are presented. The participants are called to run for a
good cause, for the German Agro Action (DWHH) for Ethiopia, by the most
successful German marathon runner, Sonja Oberem. Last year over 35,000 €

Afghanistan. The participants will be able to order photos from the official
photo service of the race—and they are informed about the anniversary
publication for the MARATHON.
