Expectation is building for this weekend’s Berlin Marathon, where some of the top male and female long-distance runners will take to the streets of Germany’s capital to race in the first of this year’s autumn marathon majors.
All the action takes place on Sunday 25 September, where a world-class women’s field will attempt to win one of the most famous and well-loved marathons on the circuit.
The course is notoriously fast – Eliud Kipchoge set his men’s world record there in 2018 – and flat, so it won’t be a surprise to see new personal bests set and historic firsts recorded.
One woman enters the race with a sub-2:20 PB, with American record holder Keira d’Amato leading the way on 2:19:12. Following that, a further five athletes with times under 2:21 will be hoping to break the 2:20 mark in Germany.

It was a remarkable run by an athlete who had quit the sport for seven years following college and who has progressed from a 2017 time of 3:14:54 to place 15th at the US Olympic trials and now hold the fastest time in US history.
