Great 10k Berlin – Germany

We love visiting Berlin — it’s a young, hip and vibrant city juxtaposed with weighty historical sights and significance.

Berlin’s many museums, WWII sites and memorials, and the Berlin Wall provide us with plenty to see in our free time.  We will also slow down and enjoy the fun and funky neighborhoods in the former “East Berlin” and maybe grab a currywurst and a German beer from a street vendor.

Our private tours give us in depth stories of what it was like to grow up “behind the wall” in East Germany, and the exhilarating first-hand account of the night the wall fell.  (It gave us goosebumps!)  Our culinary event will give us a chance to sample authentic, mouth-watering local cuisine, beer and wine!

Visit the Great Breweries Marathon site here!

Together with Belgium’s best – Duvel Moortgat, Palm Belgian Craft Brewers en Brouwerij Bosteels – we invite you on a great discovery run or walk through these iconic breweries (literally!). As during the 2016 edition you will have the choice between two distances: 25km or a full marathon.

To guarantee safe conditions during the event, only 6,000 participants will be allowed. (But, if you register with our Finish Line Travel tour, you are guaranteed entry!)  A Great Breweries Marathon T-shirt, a unique medal and a gift basket full of beer are included in your registration fee.

If you wish to “hike” the marathon or 25km, you may taste the amazing beers as you pass through the breweries!  If you are running, your tastings will be your reward at the finish line!
