DirectRooms.com – September’s Berlin Marathon to attract 40,000 runners
Competitors numbering up to 40.000 are training hard for the upcoming Berlin Marathon, slated for 26 September, with Berlin hotels already heavily booked
Huge numbers of amateur and professional marathon athletes will line up at the start of the Berlin event on 26 September, with many thousands of spectators crowding the 42 km route around the city. The course is the world’s fastest and attracts all the best-known great names in marathon racing.
The Berlin race, with four other courses, comprises part of the World Marathon Majors, an international competition with a prize of one million dollars split between the two winning male and female contestants.
The event is organised by SCC Runners with the day before the main race, the 25th, set aside for roller skaters, power walkers, wheelchair contestants and children, all with their own events. For days before the event, cheap Berlin hotels (http://directrooms.com/germany/hotels/berlin-hotels/price1.htm) will be fully occupied by competitors and spectators, with booking well in advance the only way to secure accommodation.
According to DirectRooms.com, with 40,000 runners plus a high number of spectators arriving for the race, the chance of finding rooms in nearby hotels will
prove difficult as Berlin is a major traveller destination, unless bookings are made at an early date. .
Lek Boonlert, the marketing head of DirectRooms,com, comments, “Major sporting events in world cities invariably result in shortages of hotel rooms close to the venues. With the Berlin Marathon, hotels near the Brandenburg Gate and Unter den Linden on the final part of the course are expected to fill up fast.”
