Berlin Marathon in pictures


Today’s Berlin Marathon was quite the exciting one for runners and spectators on the course and for Canadians paying attention from this side of the Atlantic.

Berlin is a fast course that attracts the world’s best marathon runners. With several of the top performers setting PBs and with the current world record set at the race, Berlin is one of the biggest days of the year for running fans.

In Canadian running news, Reid Coolsaet ran the second fastest Canadian marathon getting close to the record of 2:10:09. He ran a 2:10:29 today in Berlin.

With a deep field of notoriously fast elites, a record could have been a possibility. Today’s marathon champions were Eliud Kipchoge and Gladys Cherano. While no world records were broken this year, Kipchoge still ran a fast one in 2:04:01. Cherano ran a sub- 2:20 marathon in 2:19:25.


Canadian run crew, Pace & Mind were also on the scene today taking photos for Canadian Running. Check out their shots and tidbits from social media to get a feel of Berlin this year.
