Hi Judy, we had a great time in Berlin.

The Tryp Hotel was perfect, great location, the breakfasts were excellent. The actual run was brilliant and we couldn’t fault the organisation.

It was an excellent experience and we have medals to prove we finished! I would highly recommend the Berlin Marathon and then the city is so interesting to explore afterwards. We really appreciated having Megan with us in Berlin to take us to the Expo, and the start line.

Was a great comfort to have her there for help and support. We really enjoyed the post marathon drinks with Megan and the other Kiwis.
