The start is located at Straße des 17. Juni between Brandenburg Gate and "Kleiner Stern".
Not a good idea, since there is no parking space available at this event. We kindly ask you to use public transportation.
By public transportation

Every year we receive messages from sad participants who can’t find their time in the results list. That’s not on behalf of us nor in the participants‘ interest.
For this reason:
- Wear the chip on your skate (no metal contact) or at your ankle (tape).
- Do not wear it above the calf, the chip won’t measure your time when you pass the finish line (not in pockets or as a necklace).
- The chip should not get in contact with anything made out of metal.
- To avoid transposed numbers: please compare the chip number stated on the bib with the numer on the chip. Please contact the support team if the numbers are not identical!
As it is not always easy to provide adequate refreshments to the inline skaters during the marathon, we provide you with a water bottle. There are also three emergency refreshment stations. However, feel free to bring your personal hydration pack with your own beverage.
- You are only allowed to bring a hydration pack with max. 2 liters in the start area.
- You are only allowed to carry beverages in the hydration pack, we will do bag checks at the entrances.
Changing tents and showers are available in the start and finish area.
There will be sanitary facilities at the end of each refreshment station.
We kindly ask you to skate without headphones to hear the warning signs from your fellow skaters or from volunteers along the course. You would also miss the amazing cheering by the spectators and live bands.
Helmets are obligatory for all inline skaters. Further protective equipment is recommended.
