DLR - Did you get the flight changed??

08/11/2012 at 07:44

I haven't Kaz.  Still down that London at the moment.  Will have a think about it on the drive back home and change tonight if i decide to go that way.

The Lufthansa saga has actually turn out alright, now managed to changed my flight times so I don't have to wake up at 3 in the morning, plus an extra sight seeing day on tues can't be bad!

Just had an email from the organisers saying they overcharged me at my registration and I will be getting 30euros refunded next month!! I didn't order a t-shirt because of the increase in price

same here for me and my husband  ....T shirt not requested as also thought I 'd spent enough -might have a rethink  .

Same Sticky - I'm now coming back at 18:20 on the Tuesday.  Direct flight.  Actually works out much better.

I ordered both t-shirts at registration!

Excellent news DLR!

I will buy my t-shirt at the expo. I actually wear the one I got in Berlin last year lots, I love the colour!

Was it a finishers one or an 'event' one Kaz?  Guessing that one is technical and the other a cotton one?

I've worn the Amsterdam one 2-3 times

09/11/2012 at 06:44

Thats exactly what it is. Last year the 'Finisher' one was black cotton with finisher on it, and the 'event' one was a technical one with the marathon slogan and sponsors on. I think I like it so much cos its bright green and black, and very  baggy!!

I have actually worn my Amsterdam one a few times too but never the Paris one!!

Morning all - just joining the thread .   Not done Berlin before but it's always been on my 'to do' list

No flights booked yet, waiting for Easyjet to release their flights...anyone know when that's likely to be?

09/11/2012 at 07:52

Shades - welcome.

Easyjet don't have specific dates when they release their scedules but they don't seem to release anything over 6 months ahead. Keep checking.

Thanks Orbutt.   Hoping to get a flight from Bristol, which is fairly local to me.

Yep, my Paris one from this year was enormous so it sat in the cupboard for a few months then I eventually binned it!

09/11/2012 at 10:29

Paris was the technical one? Or was there another..... I love my Paris as it was loose and airy, great for summer, sometimes cooler than wearing a vest on a hot summers day, not that we got many of that about

09/11/2012 at 10:45

Yep, that's the one sticky.  I think they switched from cotton to technical in 2010.

I like my shirts relatively 'fitted' (not a problem with current injury weifht gain...) and I found the Paris one was enormous.

Is the Berlin finishers shirt Cotton? Bummer.
Is the event shirt technical? May have to buy that one.

My Paris shirt is a pretty good fit - and it's a Large - and I often wear it when training. I gave it a run out in Oz.
09/11/2012 at 13:18

Yeah, this being my first Berlin and not wanting to miss out, my so-called 60 euro registration became 119 euros in the end with all these different T-shirts etc!

09/11/2012 at 13:24

In 2011 the finisher one was cotton, but it was actually a nice design and I must admit I do wear mine for every day use. I also bought an event t-shirt which as kaz points out is a technical top.

Just so you know all know in 2011 anyway all t-shirts events and finishers could be purchased at the expo. The only difference with ordering in advance was a token was attached to your bid to rip off and hand in at another desk. If you don't know that it would be very easy to miss/forget about it.

Same here Sticky - although I got into the 90 Euro bracket so even more...

Orbutt - event T-shirt technical, finishers' T-shirt cotton. It was a great finishers' T-shirt this year but not so good event t-shirt.

Kaz - I ran Berlin this year in the 2011 technical T-shirt, which I love. Much better than this year's. Great colour, it's my favourite event t-shirt. (I also love my orange Amsterdam technical t-shirt.) However, I've not been able to buy the photos - the peri-nippular (to use the medical term) Vaseline I used pre-race makes it look like I'm lactating throughout...!

Oh well, back to black t-shirts next year!
09/11/2012 at 13:31
Oh yeah, and I hate my Paris one. I also dyed it a dark colour from its original yellow... Not a good look. ????
