I Ran 2hr 28min At The Berlin Marathon Last Year—Here’s My Strategy For The Race

Athletes run during the 47th Berlin Marathon 2021 on September 26, 2021 in Berlin, Germany

The Berlin Marathon is the perfect race for setting PRs. Its famously flat and fast course has been the setting for the last eight world record times in the marathon, a streak that goes back to 2004.

In 2022 Eliud Kipchoge set the world record at the Berlin Marathon, an incredible 2h 1min 9sec. I wasn’t exactly hot on his heels, but I did clock 2hr 28min 34sec to finish 146th at the race, and while you’d probably rather get Kipchoge’s advice than mine, he has other things to think about this week since he’s racing Berlin again, so you’re stuck with me.
