For those interested in running the Berlin Marathon 2013, entries open tomorrow,  25th Oct 2012. The following information has just been released on their website. Apply quickly as it fills up in just a few days. I just hope that I make it this time, last time I had to withdraw because of injury.

Registration for the BMW BERLIN MARATHON 2013 starts Thursday, October 25th

At noon on Thursday, October 25, online registration for the 40th BMW BERLIN MARATHON on September 29, 2013 will begin. The limit is set at 40,000 participants. The registration fee for the first 10,000 registrants is 60 Euros. The next 15,000 registrations will have a 90 Euro fee, and the remaining will have a 110 Euro fee. Last time the participation limit was reached after 6 weeks.


About pre-registration:

In order to simplify registration for the 40th BMW BERLIN MARATHON, we have implemented a pre-registration procedure for the stages with the 60- and 90-Euro organisational fees. This is how it works:

On the registration page, fill in the fields with your name, date of birth, and email address, and then click on the "register" button.

This will "pre-register" you; you will receive a confirmation via email.

I have only stayed at the Excelsior so cant really comment on others. The Excelsior is close to the Zoologischer Garten Station which is only a few stops down the line from Berlin Central Station. The Excelsior was excellent but is looking a bit expensive this time round. Also I like the idea of getting a hotel a bit closer to the start this time. A hotel near Berlin Central(Berlin Hauptbahnhof)station is I think a good bet. There are several cheap hostel type hotels in that area as well as very expensive ones. I have booked a studio in the Adina apartment hotel which is easy walking distance of the station. This hotel gets good reviews on trip advisor. Another advantage is the fact that you can get get a train to the station direct from the airport.

I ran the Amsterdam Marathon last weekend and after a tip from my Nephew opted for the Flying Pig Youth Hostel in the centre of Amsterdam ..... as a 50 year old I did scratch my head a bit on getting the tip ....but went for it and was really pleased .....there were lots of other runners stopping and whilst me and my friends were at the upper end of the age spectrum the whole experience was positive ..... in Berlin there is a similar (sister) Hostel which is St Christophers so if you want value for money and a bit of a laugh give it a go .........

Registration is not open yet. It opens at 12am today 25th October.Try again after 12. 

25/10/2012 at 10:22

25/10/2012 at 10:25

Correct. 11am GMT. I had it confirmed from the organisers that in an attempt to speed up the registration process - you pre-register now and then pay in November.

It's a good system, signing up to Paris was a nightmare. This make more sense in handling high traffic
