      Today is the best day to visit the Marathon Expo and collect your bib number and any other extra items you may have pre-ordered. The Marathon Expo has plenty to see and do, so we suggest you allow time to collect your race documents, shop from the many exhibitors, listen to the experts and enjoy the pre-race vibe. There will be an opportunity to meet with your Marathon Tours & Travel team at the hotel to travel together to the Marathon Expo. For those who prefer to visit the expo independently, detailed directions will be provided in your final itinerary.

      Early evening, we invite you to join your Marathon Tours & Travel team for a welcome meeting and an easy run/walk to stretch the legs. The route is not expected to be longer than 5km and is likely to pass some local sights such as the Jewish Memorial, Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag. A perfect way to see and feel the vibe at the start/finish area. Supporters are very welcome to join too.
