2003-09-20One week before the 30th real,- BERLIN MARATHON, the traditional “cult run“ and remembrance run on the original marathon course from 1974, parallel to the Avus highway, will take place on Sunday, September 21, 2003!
The start will take place at 9:00 a.m. at the original start from 1974 at Waldschulallee 80 in Charlottenburg, near Mommsen Stadium. Race Director Horst Milde will give the starting shot.
In 1974, 286 courageous runners started out, and 244 arrived at the finish in front of Mommsen Stadium. The womens winner in 1974 was Jutta von Haase (LG Süd) in 3:22:01. Only 10 women participated in this 1st Berlin Peoples Marathon of SCC. The mens winner was Günter Hallas (LG Nord), with a time of 2:44:53. Günter Hallas, by the way, will be running his 28th BERLIN MARATHON on September 28, 2003.
The “Cult Run“ on Sunday will only be 15 kilometres to the corner of Havelchaussee, as an “oxygen recreation run“ in a moderate pace in various groups. Of course, the 29-time marathon participant, Bernd Hübner, together with John Kunkeler, will be setting the tempo at this cult run.
In 1974, Bernd Hübner, a rower at BRC, came in 72nd with a time of 3:38:06. He has participated in every BERLIN MARATHON since then, and with his 29 times, he is the singular record holder of the BERLIN MARATHON Jubilee Club; Christl Heine leads the women with 22 races. The Jubilee Club currently has 1,149 members from 14 countries. 55 new aspiring members will be at this years MARATHON start, who have thus far successfully finished 9 races.
