Berlin Marathon Tomorrow!

Berlin Marathon
Written by Charlie

Berlin MarathonThe fall marathon season is getting in full swing and no better way to kick it into high gear than with the Berlin Marathon tomorrow. The last four world record times in the marathon have been set in Berlin and if Wilson Kipsang has anything to do with it, there will be another world record after Sunday’s race. He has put a lot into this marathon with the intent of breaking the current world record marathon time of 2:03:38.

Kipsang’s PR time is 2:03:42 so he is not that far off from the record time. Berlin is known as one of the fastest marathon courses in the world and employs pacers to help the elite runners achieve the world record times. Berlin has seen an average time of 2:04:37 for the top ten fastest times run there. In addition to Wilson Kipsang, there are other very fast marathoners that will be running on Sunday. The start time of the race is 8:30AM (2:30AM EST) and can be watched online at this link. If you will be up, make sure you watch the race as it may be an historic athletic event! The elite runners will be nearing the finish line at 4:30AM (EST) so that might be easier for those of you on the East Coast.
