Berlin Marathon runners © easy-berlin
Taking runners past most of the famous sights of the historic city, the annual Berlin Marathon is one of the most popular in the world and ends at the imposing Brandenburg Gate. It's an extremely popular race and the limit of 40,000 runners is generally reached a few hours after entries open for the event. The route is interspersed with about 80 live music stages where bands urge on competitors and entertain spectators. This remarkable music marathon makes the race even more special: some participants are even lucky enough to have requested songs played for them as they approach the finish line.
