BIG 25 Berlin – Preview.

One of the most famous Berlin’s road races has now an official Half-Marathon course. The start will be in front of the Olympic Stadium; the course then will lead the runners through the city centre of the capital, passing Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden, Friedrichstraße, Gendarmenmarkt, Potsdamer Platz, the Memorial Church at Kurfürstendamm and the TV tower (the Half-Marathon and the 10k runners will pass through a shorter version of the route). The finish will then be on the glorious blue track of the Olympic Stadium (a very rare opportunity to trample on the legendary track). Did you train for the event? You could check your condition with a simple Conconi-test, or refine your preparation using the Hypoxic chamber! For the most scientific race-enthusiasts: have you ever thought about Amino Acids supplements?
More than 10000 entries are expected and after the recent record set by the 6th Berliner Airport Run (3972 runners at the start) it’s not difficult to predict a great race!

The time limit to accomplish the race for 25k is fixed in 3h 15min and for 10k in 1h 30min. Anyone not reaching 12.5k within the time zone of 95 min after the start is kindly asked to end the race. These runners will be brought by bus to the Olympic Stadium.
BIG 25 Berlin has produced five world records in total over the years: Kenneth Cheruiyot 1:13:58 (in 1997), Rodgers Rop 1:13:44 (in 2001), Paul Kosgei 1:12:45 (in 2004) and Samuel Kosgei 1:11:50 (in 2011). The course seems to be very fast: every runner looking for a PB should think about the participation to this spectacular race.
Meanwhile…keep on training, people!
