Berlin Marathon
Sunday 16 September 2018



The Weekend:
Berlin is one of the 6 Marathon Majors and is a world record course. This speaks for itself - it is a fantastic event and one that sells out in record time too! Every runner wants to run Berlin and now you can - We have GUARANTEED entries. As well as having one of the best races in the world it is also a wonderful city to explore.

We feel we have just the right deal for you.

What is included :
Our 'Running Crazy' package covers everything - and more! All that you would need over the course of the Marathon weekend:-

•  Met at Berlin Brandenburg International Airport by 'Running crazy' staff
•  Return guided transfer from airport/hotel
•  Conveniently located quality hotel
•  GUARANTEED Race Entry
•  Free public transport day pass enabling you to visit race EXPO
•  Carbo-loading meal night before the race (optional and cash on the night)

The Race:

This is the fastest Marathon course in the world. It takes in many of the sights of this great city. What better way of seeing them than to run round them!

Spectators and Supporters:
We know how important spectators and supporters are at these events. We provide a supporters package at no extra charge. We will advise where on the course are the most advantageous spectator positions, and how to get there easily and in time for the race. More often than not we will take you there and join you for a cup of coffee and have a few surprises planned whilst awaiting the first sight of the runners! All our hotels are comfortably furnished with TV and entertainment facilities - many have spas, pools and saunas too.

Charity Runners:
'Running Crazy' are delighted to welcome runners who are raising sponsorship for registered charities. We know that the great feeling of accomplishment when completing the race, feels even better when you are helping others in to the bargain! See our Run for Charity link to choose a charity that you can help. Many charities listed there will provide special runners packs including sponsorship forms and tips, and also charity running vests. Just contact them with your details and tell them you intend to run with 'Running Crazy' on their behalf. In addition we will provide you with a 'Running Crazy' Certificate confirming your achievement and result, and also a special commemorative prize. Just specify the charity name in your 'Application'.

Accommodation:
We know how important it is to have a conveniently located hotel. Our quality hotel is just perfect for the Berlin Marathon and is just 800 metres from the race start. We even have a short cut to the start area which means you don't have to leave your own room until just 30 minutes before the start (if you don't want to). You will still make it in plenty of time (great for that last toilet visit!). You don't want to share a portable toilet with 39,999 others or worse still, as we saw this year, make a dart for the bushes to spend a penny after just 2 minutes running!

The Weather:
The last 4 years have seen perfect weather conditions for running – cool but sunny.
Here are the figures:
• Average hours of sun - 4
• Wet days per month - 8
• Average Temperature - 12-19 degrees
• Average monthly rainfall - 3''

Entertainment:
Berlin is a vibrant capital city. It is known for it's liberalism and the people are genuinely friendly with almost all speaking a good level of English. Most menus etc are printed in English and of course we have a great carbo-loading meal planned for the night before the race, and a celebration party to rival all after it. It should not be forgotten that this is the start of Octoberfest (yes in September!) and we know a couple of great venues where you really can Ooompah with the best of them! We will provide you with a Berlin city map, a list of ideas of things to see and do including tips we have learnt from our time here. There are stacks of museums and galleries and all sorts of tours (Bus, Boat, Walk) taking in some of the stories and history of this place. The 'Running Crazy' representative will be on hand most evenings too, to help you get the most from your time away.

Groups:
This weekend offers a great opportunity for Clubs, or training partners to get together.
Some Clubs already make this event their annual outing, and it is ideally suited. Travelling together may also be more convenient. There are discounts available for large groups (20+), but even a group of just 10, will qualify for an additional prize for the first or last to finish.

Prices:
Our all inclusive prices are extremely competitive - from as little as just £99/€119/US$169 for the weekend - we know we cannot be beaten on price   - and our runners continually tell us that they receive so much more on a 'Running Crazy' weekend break. All our 'resort races' offer half board accommodation, and for our 'Big City' races we know all the best value places to eat, drink and have fun. Indeed we book these for our pre-race and after race gatherings, meaning groups and individuals can just sit back, relax, make new running pals and let us do any worrying. No tourist traps for our clients! We know these races and places inside out, and will advise on what to see and do over the weekend, provide directions and maps - all very useful when on a tight timescale. All you have to do is run!

Closing Date:
6 weeks before the event, or sooner if "Sold Out" applied to Index page.

What to do next:
If you are interested in taking part in this event, simply complete and return the Application Form. Further details will be sent by return of E-Mail including travel tips, a full price list, and payment arrangements.

BERLIN MARATHON TESTMONIALS

Lorna and Tony O'Donnell - Guernsey, Channel Islands
Thanks very much to you and your team for a great weekend. We really enjoyed our time in Berlin and despite the injuries leading up to the race, I finished it, without further problems to calves or achilles so it's onwards and upwards from here! Plus the charity I run for is £4500 to the good so I count that as mission accomplished! Just watched the DVD which was fun; what a nice idea!

Anyway, I wanted to say a sincere thank you for all your wonderful organisation which certainly helped to make the whole weekend so relaxed and enjoyable.

See you in Benidorm in ......7 weeks!

Louise Spurgeon - Plumstead
Thank you again for another great weekend organised by Running Crazy.

Craig Brown - Ayr, Scotland
Hi Malcolm just wanted to send a big thanks for all your organising etc.

I had a great time. I was also over the moon to achieve a big goal of mine with a sub three and Michael with his first marathon!!

I will recommend you to my club and i will definitely use you again.

I would love to do Berlin again next year.

Jaqui Wynds - Cheltenham
Thank you to you and the boys for giving us such an enjoyable weekend in Berlin. Not sure Tim has recovered from all the walking yet...

It definitely does what it says on the tin, the race was hassle free and with everything being arranged for us removed any worries we may have had. Ready for the next one now !

Don't work too hard - Very best wishes

Sybil Kennedy - Helensburgh, Scotland
Thank you so much for great organisation in Berlin for the boys and I. We had a great time and I even got a PB - so delighted.

Recovering this week and itching to get out to run next week. Looking forward to our Club's trip to the Torremolinos Half in 2014 with your company.

Thanks again - lovely to meet you.

Phillip Howells - Gloucestershire

Many thanks for the results link and the whole weekend in Berlin. It made it so much more straightforward to book with you and we all felt in our Gloucestershire 'team' that you looked after us very well and were great value for money, so many thanks to you, John and Gerry for your efforts on our behalf, much appreciated.

Peter & Paul Abraham - Altrincham, Cheshire
Thank-you very much for organising a fantastic weekend- I was extremely impressed at the lengths you went to in making the marathon weekend a very enjoyable experience. It would be very difficult to improve on your service. Paul and I have discussed doing it again next year!!

The weekend gave us the opportunity to meet other runners with an interest in marathons and to hear all their stories.

Thanks again.

Lucie Farrell - RTE, Dublin
Just a quick note of thanks for everything with regards the Berlin Marathon. It was just such a wonderful experience - despite the fact that I did my sums wrong and totally miscalculated my timings on the day! But that just means I get to have another crack at it in the future! Thanks again

Janice Wallace - Wolverhampton
Just a note to say thank you for organizing a brilliant weekend in Berlin for the Marathon. I had a such a great time and met lots of lovely people.

Thank you for organising a great trip to Berlin, I had a great time on what was my first 'Running Crazy' adventure.

In fact, I was wondering if you could give me some details on the Benidorm trip please? This time I'll be taking my husband Paul.

I'm looking to run the half marathon and Paul is going to do the 10km.

Thanks again.

Fergus & Kathryn Wills - Belfast
Hi Malcolm,

I hope that you're well and enjoying your international travels - hopefully we'll cross paths in the next year or so as our marathon adventures continue. Once again, thanks for your help in organising our Berlin booking. The trip was a fine way to celebrate our respective 40th birthdays. Take care,

Steve & Sally Stone - Bristol
Many thanks. We had a great time in Berlin with 'Running Crazy' and would certainly recommend you to anyone wishing to take part in a running weekend. Hope to see you again soon.
