29th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON to admit 8,000 inline skaters

Due to the tremendous demand for entries in the inline skating competition as part of the 29th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON, the race organizers have now managed to make all the arrangements necessary to increase the limit of entries for the 29 September event

2002-05-13

Previous editions of the race had seen a 6,000 competitor ceiling, which meant that the entry facility had to be closed very early. Last year, a total of 6,105 athletes started in what was to become the biggest skating marathon worldwide.

New arrangements with the competent local authorities have made it possible for skaters to use some additional paved surfaces in the finish area so that now there is enough space to accommodate a larger number of finishers once they crossed the line, so as to avoid tailbacks, crashes or nasty falls. Also, the field of skaters will be drawn out even more by further extending the staggered start successfully introduced last year. Interested skaters should not hesitate to register, though, as there can be no doubt that all of the extra 2,000 entries will be allocated very soon.
