30 Year Anniversary of the Fall of the Wall - Freedom to Run
In the night from November 9 to November 10, 1989, the lives of Germans, especially Berliners, were to change forever. The wall that had divided the city for so long fell, and the emotional images that went around the world, especially from the Brandenburg Gate, are still famous today. For the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON this date also represents something very special.
