Berlin läuft! was founded in 2008 and has since become one of the biggest running event organisers in the capital. In 2014 “Berlin läuft!” and Belgian sports marketing agency GOLAZO joined forces in Germany with the goal of getting more people interested in sport. Golazo Sports is also active in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Italy and Spain and organises over 200 major sporting events per year. Golazo’s international position with over 500.000 participants per year will strengthen the “running” base of “Berlin läuft!” and will help activate other sports disciplines in Germany.
It all started for “Berlin läuft!” with the acquisition of the license of the event formerly known under the name “25km de Berlin” and also “Franzosenlauf”, the well-known 25 kilometre run “BIG 25 Berlin”. At the moment “Berlin läuft!” organises eight annual road races in Berlin and Brandenburg, involving more than 40,000 runners each year.
With distances of 5 km, 10 km, half marathon, 25 km and since 2015 also a marathon, both solo or relay, a wide range of options are on offer for all levels: beginner, recreational, passionate runner and pro athlete. With the organisation of four running meetings per year, runners also have the opportunity to prepare for specific running events. In addition to its own events, “Berlin läuft!” also provides services for companies on whose behalf it provides the organisation of various events.
