S 25 Berlin

VOLVO Tierparklauf

The Great 10K

What can you expect in 2022?
The program again includes four great races in the sports metropolis of Berlin – with very different highlights and special distances. After the re-start in 2021, we want to take the great atmosphere and many other points with us into the new year. At the same time it is our goal to become even better and to offer you something new.

What’s new in 2022?
For example, that we further expand the children’s runs. We want to maintain the special atmosphere of the children’s races and at the same time enhance the sporting value of the events. From now on, we will offer a division according to age groups – and finally there will also be timekeeping as with the big ones.
Speaking of timing: Starting in 2022, a Berlin-based company will take over the timing. The cooperation with davengo GmbH allows us and you a higher flexibility in registration and timing and expands the offer. When you register for the first time, you will need to create a new account. In the future you will be able to transfer your starting place to another person independently and free of charge.
The timing is done by means of easychip transponder. You will receive this automatically with your race number and wear it on your shoelace. The chip is only used once for the individual run. It does not have to be bought or rented.

We hope you like the new features!

Do you have any further questions?
You can reach us at 030- 30 111 86 44 or by mail at info@berlin-laeuft.de.

All participants whose starting places have been transferred to the next year or who receive a 25% voucher will be notified by e-mail in the course of the week.

We look forward to your registration – and wish you a wonderful pre-Christmas season!

Your
Berlin läuft! team

Party atmosphere at the big S 25 anniversary in Berlin: Deborah Schöneborn and Hendrik Pfeiffer became second.

Party atmosphere at the big S 25 anniversary in Berlin: Deborah Schöneborn and Hendrik Pfeiffer became second.

Germany’s oldest city run celebrates its 40th birthday with almost 8,000 participants. Thijs Nijhuis and Liliana Dragomir win over 25 kilometers. Canoeing world champion Conrad Scheibner starts in the relay. Detailed hygiene concept makes event possible.


Nearly 8,000 enthusiastic runners celebrated the 40th anniversary of the “S 25 Berlin” this Sunday morning, turning the heart of the capital into a joyous birthday party. Thijs Nijhuis from Denmark, the Tokyo Olympian in the marathon, completed the 25 kilometers fastest. He needed 1:17:12 hours. Liliana Dragomir from Romania won the women’s race in 1:30:53 hours. Hendrik Pfeiffer (TV Wattenscheid 01) and Deborah Schöneborn (LG Nord Berlin) each finished second.


Over the 25 kilometers from Berlin’s Olympic Stadium to the city center, past numerous sights and back, Thijs Nijhuis broke away from the field early on and had a cushion of 23 seconds after eleven kilometers. The marathon participant from this year’s Olympic Games lost some of this advantage on the second half of the course, but finally crossed the finish line on the blue track in the Olympic Stadium in first place after 1:17:12 hours. Hendrik Pfeiffer followed eleven seconds behind in second place. Behind him a larger group had formed from which local hero Fabian Clarkson (SCC EVENTS Pro Team Berlin; 1:21:13 hours) secured third place in the final sprint.


In the women’s race, Berlin’s Deborah Schöneborn could only follow the men in her S 25 debut. Romanian Liliana Dragomir, last year’s half marathon world championship participant, had an early gap and ran out an unchallenged victory in 1:30:53 hours. Schöneborn finished second, almost three minutes behind the 18th-placed marathon runner at the Olympic Games, in the first half of the course. Maja Seidel from Berlin was third in 1:41:25 hours.


Almost 8000 participants were at the start of the 40th edition of the S 25 with the main race, half marathon, ten kilometer, relay and children’s races. Among them was Wolfgang Paech from Berlin, who participated in all 40th editions – this year over ten kilometers.
Race director Martin Seeber summed up: “In these challenging times, major sporting events are anything but a matter of course. It’s great to see so many big and small sports enthusiasts on the streets of Berlin again. We have received a lot of positive feedback from the runners, who are very grateful that they were able to run with us were able to run in a competition again. And it is just as great how exemplary all participants adhered to the hygiene concept. Fantastic weather and a great atmosphere played their part in a successful event.”
The basis of the organizers’ hygiene concept was the Tested Vaccinated Recovered (3G) rule. Only vaccinated, recovered or tested persons were allowed on the premises and to the run, and an FFP2 or medical mask had to be worn until shortly before the start. Martin Seeber adds: “We are pleased that our strict hygiene concept was implemented so smoothly. The runners really behaved in an exemplary manner and celebrated this special anniversary exuberantly. I would like to thank everyone who made this possible very much.”

Juliana Rößler and Conrad Scheibner successful with relays


Prominent athletes at the finish line were also Juliana Rößler, successful Special Olympics canoeist and athlete spokesperson for the Berlin 2023 Games, and canoeing world champion Conrad Scheibner. Both ran into the Olympic Stadium as the final runners of the relay teams of the Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023 and thus provided a wonderful sign on the topic of inclusion.


“S 25 Berlin” 40 years ago: Pioneer for city runs in Germany


The 40th edition of the S 25 Berlin once again transformed the heart of the capital into a joyous birthday party and an unforgettable sightseeing tour for top and amateur runners. The athletes started at the Olympic Stadium and ran – after the “stations” Victory Column, Brandenburg Gate, German and French Cathedral, Potsdamer Platz, Kurfürstendamm, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Radio Tower – on the famous blue track in the Olympic Stadium to the finish line. On offer were distances of ten kilometers, the half-marathon distance, the traditional 25 kilometers as well as a relay competition for teams (5 x 5 kilometers) and a children’s race.


1981 Hand in hand to the finish line / Since 1990 it’s been all over Berlin


40 years ago, the starting signal for the running movement in German cities was given in Berlin: On May 3, 1981, the “25 km de Berlin” was the first city run in Germany. French Major Jaques Bride once had the idea for a 25-kilometer run in the middle of the divided city. In 1981, the French Allies wanted to use the race to document their friendly ties to the people of Berlin. The premiere was a great success with over 3,000 participants. 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. Frenchwoman Yonille Audibert won in 1:36:35. Over the years, the times got better and better and the fields of participants larger and 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 now traditional route is also considered particularly fast. Several world records have already been celebrated. 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 became the main sponsor, the race has been called S 25 Berlin.

Volunteering at S 25 Berlin: Become an anniversary ambassador and win VIP packages!

40 years ago, the starting signal for the running movement in German cities was given in Berlin: On 3 May 1981, the “25 km de Berlin” was the first city run in Germany.

Das ISTAF wird 100 – und ein prominenter Ehrengast kommt zur großen Jubiläums-Party: Ausnahme-Leichtathlet Karsten Warholm (25) geht am kommenden Sonntag, 12. September 2021, im Berliner Olympiastadion über die 400 Meter Hürden an den Start. In Tokio war der 25-jährigeNorweger in einer Weltrekordzeit zum Olympiasieg gestürmt, gewann in sensationellen 45,94 Sekunden. „Ich freue mich riesig, zum 100. Geburtstag nach Berlin zu kommen“, sagt Karsten Warholm, der im Vorjahr in einem spektakulären Rennen auf der blauen Bahn des Olympiastadions den Weltrekord noch knapp verpasst hatte. Karten für das besondere ISTAF am Sonntag gibt es telefonisch unter der ISTAF-Tickethotline 030.301118630 und online im Ticketshop unter www.tickets.istaf.de.

Meeting-Direktor Martin Seeber: „Toll, dass Karsten Warholm erneut zu uns nach Berlin kommen möchte und das Jubiläum des ältesten Leichtathletik-Meetings der Welt mit den Berliner Fans, die ihm schon 2020 zum Meeting-Rekord verholfen haben, feiern will. Das wird eine schnelle Geburtstags-Party!“

Freuen können sich die Fans auf zahlreiche weitere Publikumslieblinge: Olympiasiegerin MalaikaMihambo (Weitsprung) ist ebenso dabei wie die Olympia-Zweite Kristin Pudenz (Diskus), Gesa Krause (3.000 Meter Hindernis), Konstanze Klosterhalfen(1.500 Meter) und der beste Speerwerfer der Welt, Johannes Vetter. Neben Karsten Warholm sind zudem weitere internationale Topstars am Start wie die russische Hochsprung-Olympiasiegerin Mariya Lasitskene, die Australierin Nicola McDermott, die in Tokio im Hochsprung knapp das Nachsehen hatte und Silber gewann, sowie Diskus-Olympiasiegerin Valarie Allman (USA). Ein Erlebnis wird das ISTAF auch für den jungen Berliner Emil Agyekum(SCC Berlin) – der 22-jährige Silbermedaillen-Gewinner derU23-Europameisterschaften darf gegen Superstar Karsten Warholm antreten.
