How do I get an entry without the set charities?
I hope that somebody can help me out with this request, as it's driving me crazy!
I would like to run the Berlin marathon this year, but when I go to sign up it says that the only way to get a ticket is to run for charity. I am hoping to run for my charity, Acorns, but it seems to only allow you to sign up for specific charities, Acorns not being one of them I have asked Acorns if they can get me a ticket, but alas, all of the charity places are sold!
Is there any way you can buy a personal entry into the marathon, without having to buy a crazy expensive package like Sports Tours International? I used them last year for the NY marathon and I really enjoyed myself, but I'm still paying off the trip now! Ideally I would like to buy entry and possibly stay with friends who live in Germany.
Any help would be very much appreciated
Hi Sean, the Berlin marathon general entry is sold out so the only option is their partnered charities or a package through a tour operator, it does fill really quickly so best to keep an eye out for the opening of the 2013 event.
Best of luck with your charity running.
Thanks very much for the response, although I'm feeling a little disappointed. Looks like the evil Sports Tours win again I will have to man up and pay them their money!
Good luck with your future running!

I agree that it's much better to run for a charity...you get to help others and in this case, it's even cheaper!

Hi Wright I have two tickets for sale, I can't make it this time, please let me knoe if you Re interested
Hey I just found out I'm travelling to Berlin that weekend. You can transfer your race entry? I would buy one or maybe both for sure.
Of course I can transfer both of them. I will sell them for you in the same price I payed, that is 129 euros each. I will love to sell both of them together (this is my husband´s and mine). Are you interested?
Shall one entry ticket still be available, please contact me at tarmo_muursepp at hotmail.com
