The Berlin Marathon - 26th September 2021


Delayed from 2021 (due to Covid) the Berlin marathon took place a very warm last Sunday in September.
Race report from Graeme: I was very worried about travelling, even although the world is opening up, there are still a lot of cases of Covid globally. The travel was actually very easy, you just have to be very prepared - submit information on vacination status ahead of entering Germany, and have a LFT before returning to the UK (and then a PCR test on Day 2). So all of that was very easy. This was my second visit to Berlin, so I made time on Saturday to revisit Checkpiount Charlie - a vivid and stark reminder of mankind's inhumanity.
The race itself was brilliant!! Crowds were lower due to Covid restrictions and polictical elections but there was still loud support for most of the route! A flat course (the world record course typically), so my groin injury was not a factor. I paced the first half perfectly (11 min/mile) and then run/walked the second half [I decided to adopt this strategy on Saturday night]. The finish just beyond the Brandeburg Gate (which you run through) was Epic! I defintely recommend this one!.
