HAND IN HAND TO THE FINISH LINE AT THE 1981 PREMIERE

4. May 2021

The first winners of the “25 km de Berlin” came from Turkey and France: Mehmet Yurdadön and Mehmet Terzi ran hand in hand to the finish line in the Olympic Stadium after 1:16:59 hours, while Frenchwoman Yonille Audibert won in 1:36:35. Over the years, the times have become better and better and the fields of participants larger. In 1990, about half a year after the fall of the Berlin Wall, 14,300 athletes ran through the whole of Berlin for the first time – past the city’s biggest sights. The course is also considered particularly fast. Several world records have already been celebrated in the sports metropolis. In 2012, for example, Kenyan Dennis Kimetto ran the 25 kilometers in 1:11:18 hours. His world record time is still unbeaten.

Since 2017, after Berliner Sparkasse joined as the main sponsor, the race has been called S 25 Berlin. The Berlin-based company also backs the anniversary as title sponsor and, among other things, makes a special anniversary shirt possible on which all interested participants can immortalize themselves.
