The Berlin half marathon was first held in 1984 and now attracts around 30,000 runners every year. The support around the course is magnificent with an estimated 200,000 spectators cheering every runner towards the finish line.

The Berlin Half marathon course is notoriously fast, characterised by flat, wide roads with several long straight sections. The half marathon race start and finishes on the Karl-Marx-Allee and passes many histrical and beautiful sites such as Victory Column, the Berliner Dome, Checkpoint Charlie and Charlottenburg Palace. For many, the highlght of the race is running through the magnificent Brandenburg Gate.

Running his debut at the distance Leonard Komon won the 34th Vattenfall BERLIN HALF MARATHON with a world-class time of 59:14, just edging out fellow-Kenyan Abraham Cheroben in a sprint finish. While 26 year-old Komon clearly missed the world record (58:23) he wanted to break, the Kenyan still had plenty to celebrate: His time is an unofficial world debut record. He improved the mark of Moses Mosop by six seconds. Fellow-Kenyan Mosop clocked 59:20 in Milan in 2010. Ethiopia’s Tadelech Bekele won the women’s race in 70:05.
