For over 40 years the behind-the-scenes professionals of Sports Tours International have pampered and prepped runners in advance of all six of the World Marathon Majors as well as most of the biggest events in the running world. From meticulously sourced accommodations and guaranteed event entry, this company has put the finishing touches on one of its most popular race venues, the 2019 BMW Berlin Marathon.
The BMW Berlin Marathon, one of the six World Marathon Majors, is the current (including in 2018) Marathon World record course. It attracts both professional and amateur runners who find they often improve their own best times running in the heady environment under the Brandenburg Gate and throughout the city’s history. Last year Sports Tours International singled out for VIP treatment and hospitality in Berlin its own 650 clients in the overall field of 40,000 runners who gained coveted entry slots from among 75,000 requests.
This year’s run on Sept. 29, 2019, will again be supported with Sports Tours International’s three, four and five-night vacation event packages. The go-to company for VIP treatment at the world’s top cycling and running events, including in Berlin, it offers programs priced from £319 (this category of package already sold out)per person double inclusive of:
Part of the fun around the Berlin Marathon is sightseeing and the Berlin Marathon Expo showcasing such topics as sports performance, functional wear, endurance sports, medicine active tourism and more. The Expo is also a meet & greet arena where competitors pick up their race numbers.
An optional package add-on leads to a two-night stay in Munich for Oktoberfest. The Lowenbrau Tent is the place to be here, and Sports Tours International offers guaranteed tent seating.

This Berlin event is one of the six major international marathons (Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York City). Runners who challenge and accomplish all six receive the Six Star Finisher Medal. More marathon records have been established in Berlin than any of the other majors.
This marathon, famous for being flat and fast, started in the Grunewald forest in 1974 and moved to West Berlin in 1981. Over recent years the BMW Berlin Marathon has provided nine world records, including Dennis Kimetto's marathon world record of 2:02:57 in Berlin in 2014. The female course record 2:19:12 was also set here in 2005.
