"My first marathon, and I imagine this will be a hard one to beat. Huge fun community with all the runners and also a great crowd all along the streets. Well organised and a free alcohol free beer at the end!" - Pete Ashlie, London
"The BM is simply the best in my opinion. Great organization, a nice flat route, friendly runners and wonderful fans that line the streets and root you on to the finish. I will never forget crossing under the Brandenburg gate and hearing the roar of the crowd." - guerofantastico, TripAdvisor
