If you have questions regarding the Abbott World Marathon Majors (AbbottWMM) Six Star Journey Berlin Marathon Package please: EMAIL

As the Official Travel Agency and Tour Operator of AbbottWMM, we have created packages specifically designed for those who have been selected in their drawing or for those who have secured their own entry and are on their Six Star Journey.

The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON race course is flat and fast with only a few corners. Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge smashed the world record at the 2022 BMW Berlin Marathon, running 2:01:09 to chop 30 seconds off his own record set in 2018 on the same course. The course also produced the first sub 2:20 marathon by a woman, Naoko Takahashi, in 2001. The race is also known for having ideal weather for running and is run on asphalt versus concrete. It is definitely one to target for your PR and with this year being its 50th Anniversary, there is no better time to participate!

We invite you to join our three-night package, which will allow you to focus on your training and leave the logistics to your Marathon Tours & Travel Team.  Please note to book this package, you must have a confirmed entry to the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. Should your travel companion wish to participate in the race with you, please reach out to check on the availability of our standard guaranteed entry.

The BMW BERLIN-MARATHON is an AbbottWMM Marathon Tours & Travel World Age Group Qualifying Race.

      Welcome to Berlin! Check-in today is at 3:00 PM. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your luggage with the hotel concierge and start exploring the surrounding area.  Your Marathon Tours & Travel Host(s) will be available in your hotel to meet and answer any questions you may have.

      We encourage you to visit the EXPO today to collect your bib number. There is plenty to see and do here (shop, eat, visit exhibitors, listen to experts, etc.) so we recommend allowing plenty of time.  Those who wish to join your Marathon Tours & Travel Host, we will have a time set to meet and go together via public transportation. If you wish to visit the Expo independently, detailed directions will be provided with your final itinerary.

      In the late afternoon, join us for an easy orientation run/walk (approximately a 5K) to acquaint yourself with the local sights such as the Holocaust Memorial, Bradenburg Gate, the Reichstag and a first-hand view of the start and finish area.  This evening, we invite you to our Welcome Reception for drinks and appetizers.  The rest of the evening is free to enjoy dinner on your own. 

      NOTE: Arriving in the morning is recommended. If there is not a convenient flight to Berlin that has you arriving early, then we recommend you arrive on Thursday, September 26.  Additional nights are available upon request for an additional charge.

Participants tend to dress up in their country’s flair with flags or costumes, so feel free to be creative!  The run/walk is about four miles (6K) and is followed by a light breakfast.  In the past, the run started at the Charlottenburg Palace and finished at the Olympic Stadium. It is free and you are not required to pre-register.  Confirmation of the run and additional transportation details will be provided in your final documents.  This evening join us for our pre-race dinner at your hotel.
