I also got an email straight away! cannot wait now! just need to get training properly i guess
Does anyone know when is best to arrive and when is best to leave? this is my first marathon and being a student i need to keep it cheap
If I arrive Fri ... I could collect my bib number on sat ... and fly back home on monday (safe option) .... does that sound right?
Or is there a way to get it cheaper?? ... finally, are the hostels good? and do they include lockers?
Damien - I have done Berlin before by flying out on Saturday morning and back Sunday evening - spent the afternoon eating and drinking and slept it off on flight back.
Thats me all paid for!
Im rather excited now!!
Damien - when did you get your email?
Did anyone understand the option purchase in the registration page? Does "special package" also include "finish T-shirt"? Althought it's priced 20 EURO, there was no tickbox next to finish T-shirt. I would imagine the finish T is included in the registration fee?
I thought it wasn't possible to pay until the 5th of November? Has anyone been notified that they can now proceed to payment? Confused ...
I only just received the email from SCC Events GmbH today, earlier than expected.
Anyone else paid and had confirmation for the 39th Berlin Marathon rather than 40th???
Sticky - i paid and have confirmation for the 40th
Email received and entry done.. definately 40th.
I received my notification and paid today for the 40th edition. I think they could be doing it waves or just sending out notifications in groups to ease the speed process
I too was notified today. I have paid and received email confirmation of a acceptance.
Whats the position with the PAPS test? One of the questions is if you've even been prescribied medicine for breathing. When I was a kid I used to have asthama, so if I put yes, is that going to work against me?
I don't think you need to worry, Sleaver. I answered yes to a few questions about heart problems, and got in without problems (as I've done twice before in berlin). I am not really sure how relevant the paps-test is, for me it just ends up in a recommendation to get regular check-ups from my physician.
Thanks JPenno, that is somewhat reassuring to know that I'm not the only one! I assumed they re-used this years email and forgot to change the email title and the event name within the email, as it also mentions 40th within the same email!
So it's not €60, it's actually €86 isn't it! Another €20 to get your hands on a finishers t-shirt and a further €6 for the timing chip! Wow, pricey marathon!
