Public entry to the 2013 BMW Berlin Marathon opened on 25 October 2012 and filled in record time.
If you managed to get a place in the Berlin Marathon public entry then we would love to have you running as part of Team Macmillan. Once your place is confirmed then you can register using our online form|, or you can send us your details to email@example.com| and we will send you out a Team Macmillan fundraising and training pack and a Macmillan technical running top.
We’ll support you every step of the way with a fundraising and training pack, regular newsletters, and support over the weekend. If you secure your own place there is no minimum sponsorship target, we simply ask you to raise as much as you can.
Team Macmillan has race entry charity places available in the Berlin Marathon. We ask for a minimum sponsorship pledge of £1,000, and you need to pay £30 to Macmillan Cancer Support in order to secure your place.
To apply for a place please fill in one of our guaranteed place application forms|. We will be in touch within three working days to confirm whether your application has been successful.
Please note that package 2 has now sold out, and race entry only is now available in the event.
We ask all our Team Macmillan package runners to raise a minimum sponsorship amount. If you register for Package One you will have to raise a minimum of £1,000, plus pay a regsitration fee of £30.
If you registered for Package Two then you will need to raise a minimum £1,200 (you will also need to pay a £190 registration fee to Sports Tours International). (Please note that this package has now sold out).
Please make all cheques for sponsorship are payable to Macmillan Cancer Support. Of course, we'll give you all the encouragement and support you'll need to make sure you smash this target!
If you have secured your own place through the public entry system then we just ask you to raise as much as possible and we'll provide you with the same level of care and support that our Team Macmillan package runners receive.
Your 'own place' means that you entered the BMW Berlin Marathon through the public entry system. In order to check whether you have been accepted to the run, check that the registration fee has been taken from your account or check the online list of registered participants|.
If you have secured a place, congratulations and we'd love for you to join Team Macmillan! Register using our online form|, or send us your details to firstname.lastname@example.org|, or call 020 7840 4915 and let us know you would like to join the Team.
We will send you out a fundraising and training pack and you will recieve the same level of support as someone on a Macmillan guaranteed place. In regards to sponsorship, we just ask you to raise as much as possible.
A Team Macmillan package place is a place that Macmillan has secured in the BMW Berlin Marathon. There are two packages available (see How Do I Apply for a Team Macmillan package, above). To sign up to one of our package places you will have to complete and sent in a Team Macmillan guaranteed place application form|.

When you join Team Macmillan you will be supported throughout your entire Berlin Marathon experience. In addition to our initial fundraising and training pack, we will send you regular newsletters full of tips to help you prepare for the big day.
You will also be invited to our pre-race pasta party the night before the race, where you can stock up on carbs and meet your fellow team mates. And if that isn't enough, we will give you the loudest support possible throughout the race from our Team Macmillan cheer points.
If you are signed up on Package 2 Sports Tours International, our tour operator, can arrange for your package to be tailored to your requirements so that you can extend your stay in Berlin or take family or friends with you (availability permitting).
However, any additional costs incurred beyond our basic Team Macmillan package will need to be paid by you. Please visit the Sports Tours International website| for more details and their booking form, or call 0161 703 8161.
Of course! When you sign up to run the BMW Berlin Marathon with Team Macmillan we will provide you with a comprehensive marathon training guide| which has programmes for beginner, intermediate and advanced runners. Plus you will receive regular newsletters full of top training tips, including advice from our Team Macmillan patrons. We will also advise you of other useful sources of information and A Guide to Marathon Day to help you prepare for your big race.
If you or any of your team mates get injured whilst training we recommend you contact your GP, physio or specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to run.
If you do need to withdraw you will need to let the race organisers know as soon as possible. Please also let Macmillan know so that we can advise you about transferring your place.
If, for whatever reason, you find that you have to withdraw from the event you must notify us as soon as possible so we can cancel your travel bookings. Below is the cancellation fee chart per Sports Tours International, our tour operator.
All runners will be required to visit the Berlin VITAL Expo in the days preceding the event in order to pick up their race number and champion (timing) chip. There are no exceptions to this, so do ensure you allow time in your schedule to go. We will confirm the opening times once they are confirmed by the Expo organisers:
In order to register you will need your passport and event registration confirmation (you will recieve this in August 2013).
Failure to register will mean that you will not be permitted to take part in the marathon itself. The Expo is open to the general public, though non-runners are charged entry.
If you own a ChampionChip, you can take this along to the Expo to be regsitered.
More details of the Expo and everything else you need to know will be contained in your Team Macmillan pre-race newsletters, and there is information on the Expo here|.
