The biggest running event in the capital is the Berlin Marathon in September. Every year, it attracts thousands of running enthusiasts from around the world. In addition to the impressive route, which leads many Berlin highlights such as the Victory Column, the Kurfürstendamm, to the finish line through the Brandenburg Gate, it’s also the good mood with countless bands that makes the marathon so popular.


In the recent years, also the little brother of the Berlin Marathon has gained in importance. In April, the running community from Berlin and the surrounding area meet after the quite winter season for the first major season highlight. With more than 36.000 participants, the Berlin Half Marathon almost reaches the dimensions of the Berlin Marathon.


In May, more than 17.000 women gather for the AVON Women's Run. There are either 5km of walking or running, with or without timekeeping, and the 10km distance, which is being offered with timekeeping only. At Germany's largest women's run, the Berlin Tiergarten and the Straße des 17. Juni are transformed into a pink feel-good zone. The event is a charity run for breast cancer sufferers. Shopping, beauty and relaxation offers complete the program.


For the 14th time the Berlin Triathlon will take place in June 2020 with start at the island of youth in Treptower Park in Berlin. Innovations this year: In addition to the previous distances Olympic, Sprint, Folk triathlon and children’s triathlon on Sunday, there will be a middle distance and a supersprint on Saturday in 2020.
