While we eagerly wait for the Berlin Marathon on Sunday to come, Racemappr still has to let you know what’s happening the week after. Even after the biggest party is over, there is still a bunch of small parties to attend. Running is a habit, and don’t ever stop challenging yourself.
There are several nice and easy races around Berlin for the next weekend. Some cool down options after the Berlin Marathon. There is also a running workshop that will teach you how to protect yourself from running injuries.
Regionalparklauf Bernimer Feldmark - Saturday, September 22
The run takes place in the Regionalpark Bernimer Feldmark located at the north-east of Berlin. This year, the run is part of a bigger Sports Festival with the municipality of Ahrensfelde. There are 1.5 km, 3 km, 6.5 km, and 13 km options for the run, with the two shorter courses also available for walking. Besides running, there is also a series of events at the park on Saturday. You can even participate in the mayor’s cup, where you can compete in teams of three against the mayor in various activities of different disciplines. Fight the power! In a friendly way, no?
Learn to RUN! - Saturday, September 22
For beginners and runners who’d like to improve their skills and forms, this is a workshop that you can benefit a lot from. Learn to RUN! is a workshop that will teach you how to properly warm up before a run; how to position your body in a run to feel lighter and be safer; exercises to train your mobility and coordination; and a few running “tricks.” Running incorrectly and carelessly can be taxing on your body in the long term. We are in this to improve our lives, not cause any harm. So if you have any doubt about the way you run, or are eager to find out more, check the event out.
Intersport Olympia Lauf - Sunday, September 23
Intersport Olympia Lauf takes place in Steglitz next Sunday. There is 5 km and 10km option as well as a brand-new 11 km skater course.
