Nevertheless, countless athletes will be out running on September 26 & 27, 2020, as they take part in the 2:01:39 Challenge. The challenge is to cover as many kilometres as possible in 2:01:39 hours. 2:01:39 hours is the world record time set by Eliud Kipchoge at the 2018 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. No matter where in the world you find yourself, everyone can become throug the #20139 a part of the #berlin42united community.
Get motivated by this sense of community and the joy of sport to attempt a new personal record, which will then be immortalized in a ranking. The only cost to participate is your sweat and muscle power. The 2:01:39 Challenge App provides the needed support. Starting in mid-September, the free app will be available for download for iOS and Android devices.
In addition, on September 27, 2020, a team of German top runners in the form of a relay is trying to break the time of 2:01:39 hours over the marathon distance around the Berlin Victory Column (Siegessäule). This is all done taking into account the official approval. Due to the current situation, viewers can only follow this action, which takes place in compliance with the current hygiene regulations, on the screen. The motto of September 27 is “Berlin bewegt sich” and will be broadcast live on rbb television from 9 am to 11.30 am. In the next weeks we will present more detailed information.
