Runners tackle Berlin Wall route in ultra race


On race day, breakfast is offered at the start from 4am and the route is marked by fluorescent blue arrows to help runners stay on course, especially through the night.

Runners are registered from all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand and the US.

At 189 euros (US$251) entry is not cheap, but the event is run by a group of dedicated volunteers as a non-profitmaking venture.

Entry for next year’s race has already opened and the limit has been raised from 250 to 500.
