30th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON first registration period ends on May 10th

This coming Saturday, May 10, 2003, marks the end of reduced fee registration

for runners, power walkers, wheelchair athletes and inline skaters for the

anniversary marathon on September 27-28, 2003. Participants can still register

for the low fee of € 50.00 with SCC-RUNNING –also online—for

the double event on Saturday and Sunday. After May 10th, the registration fee

will go up to € 70.00. To date, the organisers have received well over

34,000 registrations from over 75 countries.

The new course through the city centre of Berlin and the finish near the

Brandenburg Gate have created even more interest for runners to participate in

the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON than in previous years. The organisers have limited

the number of runners to 35,000 and 12,000 skaters. The 15th real,- MINI

MARATHON (4.2195 km) for the youth of the Berlin schools expects an additional

8,000 – 9,000 participants.

Registration for the MINI MARATHON can be made via the sport teachers in the

schools at the Senatsverwaltung für Schulsport und Bewegungserziehung.
