Along the course and at the finish of the BMW BERLIN MARATHON around 140,000 bananas and 90,000 apples  are spent annually for the inline skaters and runners on the two days. But where does the vast amounts of small carbohydrate and mineral dispenser come anyway? The fruit orders are made directly with the food suppliers. SCC EVENTS obtains the apples from local famers in Berlin and Brandenburg. The varieties of the apples, such as the type 'Gala'  depends on availability.

The bananas come from Costa Rica and are ordered six weeks prior to the Marathon. Thus, the bananas have the right level of maturity, the delivery is clocked accordingly. Heading towards Germany, the bananas are still green, then they are stored in ripening chambers, until they finally arrive a week before the BMW BERLIN MARATHON. Early in the morning of the race, our crew delivers them then accordingly to the six refreshment points and to the finish area - fresh and only for the participants.
