Berlin Marathon Success

A huge congratulations to Richard Hill who has successfully completed the Berlin Marathon in an impressive 4 hours and 12 minutes. Blueoak Estates sponsored Richard, who has now raised over £1,500 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

The Berlin Marathon is a major running and sporting event held annually in Berlin, Germany. The official marathon distance of 42.195 kilometers (26 miles 385 yards) is set up as a city-wide road race where professional athletes and amateur runners jointly participate. First initiated in 1974, the event traditionally takes place on the last weekend in September.

The Berlin marathon is one of the largest and most popular road races in the world. In 2016 the race had 46,950 entrants (41,283 runners, 5,445 inline skaters, 185 hand bikers, 37 wheel-chairers) from 122 countries, and more than one million spectators. Along with seven other races, it forms the World Marathon Majors, a series offering a $1 million prize purse to be split equally between the top male and female marathoners.
