Summer is here, and it’s getting hotter and hotter! If you haven’t been outside enough, it’s time! For all the running and racing lovers near Berlin, here is a list of the summer racing events happening during the week of June 25th to July 1st. Go out there, feel the summer breeze, and get your sweating going!
We’ve got races! From 800 meter races to 3 x 4K relays; from Nordic walks to Tough Mudder obstacle challenge; from U18 track meet to senior races, whatever age group you are, whatever level of running you prefer, whatever goals you have in mind, you will be able to find your perfect race from right below.
Marzahner Laufer Cup offers three distances: 800m, 5k, and 10k, for the young runners. There are three age groups one can participate in: U18, U16, and U14. It is a competitive race, so be prepared to give it your all.
A great event for runner families! 4k fun-run is a good way to spend some quality outdoor times with your kids, and if your family really enjoys challenges, there’s also a 3 by 4k relay option. For individual runners, there are also 8k and 12k run options that are perfect for training for longer events. The interesting feature with this race is that there are altitude climbs in its course, a little extra cardio for the day!
400m Bambini run for kids born between 2012 and 2018; 800m student run for kids between age 6 to 11; 2.3k and 6.9k running and Nordic walk options for our older runners. Nothing too special about the event, besides, oh, by the way, it is hosted at the popular Tiergarten in central Berlin.
Oh, it’s dirty. Tough Mudder is a 5k mud course with 10+ world class obstacles. Pace yourself and be strategic, because it’s going to take a toll on your whole body. After you’ve destroyed the course, there will be music, craft beer, and street food offered in the Mudder Village. What a fun weekend, huh?
Albert Wuthe Gedenklauf offers the longest distance race of this week. So runners working on their distance, take notice. The three distance options include 4.3k, 10k, and 14.9k, and there is also a cute Bambini run for kids between ages of 3 and 8.
Freie University is hosting their annual campus run this Sunday. They offer a 1100m kids' run, a 5k run, a 5k walk, and a 10k run. You are also encouraged to participate the event as a team. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors. Register as a team, find a cool team name, and you could win a 500 Eur prize!
