Berlin Marathon – world record and perfect weather

Today the 38th Berlin-Marathon is taking place – or actually it took place. For some runners the Marathon is already over, some others still have to rund a couple of kilometers before they can relax..

Patrick Makau from Kenia was first – again – and with just about two hours (2:03:38) he broke the world record. It seems the Berlin Marathon is becoming more and more one of the fastest Marathons. For Patrick Makau it is already the second time he wins in Berlin – also last year he came in first.

If you want to – or if you have to go through downtown Berlin today you’ll probably have to be a bit patient – vast areas of the city centre are closed. And the streets that are open might be packed. You should probably try to avoid the Marathon area – a map showing the route can be found on the event’s homepage:
