The Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge won the Berlin Marathon but missed the hoped for world record. The 32-year-old finished the race in 2:03:34 hours. He pays a premium of 40,000 €, for a world record there would have been an additional € 50,000 and a time bonus of 30,000 €. The Berlin Marathon is one of the World Marathon Majors and is one of the world's largest marathon runs alongside New York, Paris and London and has been equipped by APA for 20 years.

43,852 runners had registered in Berlin - this is a record. The toppte only APA! With 8000 m of endless belts, 800 m of PVC tarpaulins, 5 giant arch arches, start and finish frame constructions, 750 sqm of carpet at the finish, 30 technicians, 8 sprinters and 2 semitrailers full of material.
