Generationen team

The Generation Team is a running competition in which two runners complete the 5k distance at the same time, form a generation team and are then compared with other generation teams in terms of time. Eligible to start as a generation team are teams consisting of at least one participant (born in 2013 and older) and one other runner, who must have at least a 20 years age difference.

For the team ranking the individually achieved net times will be summed up.

Participants of the generation team run start at the same time as the 5k runners but do NOT count in the 5k run.

Kids/Bambini Run

You can find all info about the KidsRun here.

NEW! Trailrun

Turn your run into a Himalayan voyage of discovery now! – TRAILRUN at the VOLVO Tierparklauf 2023

On the mountain slopes of the cloud forests, small pandas climb through the branches high above the heads of the crested deer. Past Francois langurs, takins and snow leopards, the path winds ever higher through dense bamboo groves toward the tree line and finally culminates on the “roof of the world” – with a view of Berlin. This is how Tierpark Berlin describes its fascinating Himalayan adventure world.

You can now also explore the “high mountains” in the middle of the metropolis in a sporty way! At the VOLVO Tierparklauf in Berlin-Friedrichsfelde in September, a TRAILRUN will be on the program for the first time.
The six-kilometer route leads right through the Tierpark and right through the Himalayan adventure world (Himalaya map) with gradients of up to ten percent and over unpaved paths.

The special TRAILRUN will take place on Saturday, 9th september

September 7, 2024 at 3 pm

Due to the nature of the course, a minimum age is required (born in 2009 or older).

Here you can register.



The timing  must be done exclusively with the easychip transponder of the company Davengo. This applies to all distances. The chip is attached to the start number, must be detached from it and worn on the runner’s shoe.

The finish time will be requested during the online registration.


The course is located on the grounds of the Tierpark Berlin.

Each kilometer of the course is marked by a kilometer sign. A lap is 5km long and will be run once by the 5km runners and twice by the 10km runners.

A refreshment point will be set up for all participants at 2.5km and for the 10km runners at kilometers 5 and 7.5. Runners are asked to choose the free tables to avoid queues. The after finish catering is located about 150m behind the finish area in the participant area for all runners.
