Just saw this thread, opened the Berlin 2103 website and pre-registration now closed - within 3 hours!!

25/10/2012 at 14:53

Wow! It says that last year took 6 weeks to fill up, so 3 hours is ridiculously quick. Am glad I was on there at 12:01 - first ever marathon now signed up for...

Wow! 2 years ago, it closed in Febuary!!! Last year, 6 weeks!!! Crazy!!!

25/10/2012 at 15:13

It took 3 hours and 30 mins but it's going, going, gone! Absolutely amazing!

Wow. I competely misjudged the Berlin Marathon registration. I am in the states and tried to sign up first thing in the AM, Chicago Time. Already gone.  Bummed out, big time. From 6 weeks in 2012 to 3hours for 2013? That's unbelievable.

Are there other ways to potentially get in?

Hi davisb, keep watching the website, there looks like further opportunities after first week of November, when registrants who fail to pay up will have their places invalidated!

Hi Davis...what Sticky said.

Sticky - flights from Leeds don't look too great.

25/10/2012 at 15:54

Thanks.   Flights from Chicago probably aren't going to be so great either.

I'll keep an eye out.

Hi DLR....thinking about Lufthansa via manchester, only £80 but very early start both ways! My other half has a flying phobia, and is actually coming up with a route by rail - too long for me pre-run! Also more expensive!

Funnily enough sticky I've just booked that at £79.10 return including hold luggage.  I booked Friday to Tuesday as I couldn't face a 7am flight the day after a marathon!

25/10/2012 at 16:21

Well done DLR, looked at the exact same flight same day too! Have you sorted your accommodation?

25/10/2012 at 16:24

No, I haven't looked at that but there's rumblings that some of the Paris lot might look at sharing appartment(s) to keep the cost down.

If you do book those days I'm likely to drive and leave the car in Manchester if you want a lift!

Delighted to see Berlin 2013 forum in action and also a few familar Paris names/faces ... Astounded by the speed of the registration filling up

Got in on a 60E place so happy with that.... First ever marathon. At ideas for best part of City to stay??
25/10/2012 at 20:22
I manged to get in at bang on 11am UK time, 60??? I reckon it's worth more money to them, if 5,000 don't pay up it will reopen and they will all pay 110??? so those who register at 60-90??? and decide against it, they win win win!

This will be my first time in Berlin, so apart from what's been mentioned, are there any good recommendations for hotels, what's the best area, and the best places to make a booking?

Budget is tight-ish but I'd be looking for a hotel, not something like an apartment or hostel.

DLR, I've just booked the same flight, out friday, back Tues. may take your offer up if you've got 3 spare seats as I've got my supporting team with me

I'll be travelling Billy No Mates so I wouldn't rule it out...though luggage space could be at a premium!  Orbutt is on the same flight out.

Been looking at staying over near the airport the night before.  Not sure I fancy getting up at 3am to drive to Manchester 2 days before a marathon!

Thinking about it, it'd be up at 5am but the principle holds true!
