Run Berlin Virtual Challenge
This is the “Half Marathon Challenge” therefore on your own or in a pair you need to submit two half marathon times. Individuals need to submit two half marathon times within a month. If you feel 4 legs are better than 2 you will need to submit 1 half marathon time each on the same day. Submit your evidence to calculate your marathon time and receive your Run Berlin Silver medal/medals. We do accept the half marathon times on different days and not consecutively to obtain a medal but your times will be recorded as unofficial.
You can also split the distance up in one of the following ways:
- 26.1 miles as a individual
- 13.1 miles in a pair (13.1 Miles per person)
- 10.54 miles in a team of 4 (10.54 Km per person)
- 5.27Km in a team of 8 (5.27Km per person)
- 2.62 miles in a team of 10 (2.62miles per person)
- 1.048 miles in a team of 25 (1.048 miles per person)
14+ or 5 and over if accompanied by an adult
Official Times – To submit an official time you must use Garmin Connect, Strava, Map My Run, Nike App or any GPS tracking device. Take a picture of your tracker and submit via your online console.
Unofficial Times – You can submit evidence to us by simply keeping a daily log. At the end sign the log, take a photo and upload it to your Virtual Marathon Series online portal. You will receive a medal and our congratulations but your time will only be recorded as an unofficial time.
For the Run Berlin special challenge you are required to beat the world record marathon time set by Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya on 16 September 2018 in Berlin. Luckily for you, over a half marathon distance. The time you need to beat in both of your half marathons is 2 hours 1 minute and 39 seconds totalling a 4 hour 3 minutes and 18 second marathon. By completing this challenge, you will get a true sense of the almost superhuman achievement this was. Every time you fail to defeat his time, you have to remember Eliud Kipchoge would have not only beaten you, he has just run twice the distance you have! You don’t have to do this special challenge and is not required to obtain your Run Berlin Silver medal.
