Spectators and Supporters:
We know how important spectators and supporters are at these events. We provide a supporters package at no extra charge. We will advise where on the course are the most advantageous spectator positions, and how to get there easily and in time for the race. More often than not we will take you there and join you for a cup of coffee and have a few surprises planned whilst awaiting the first sight of the runners! All our hotels are comfortably furnished with TV and entertainment facilities - many have spas, pools and saunas too.
'Running Crazy' are delighted to welcome runners who are raising sponsorship for registered charities. We know that the great feeling of accomplishment when completing the race, feels even better when you are helping others in to the bargain! See our Run for Charity link to choose a charity that you can help. Many charities listed there will provide special runners packs including sponsorship forms and tips, and also charity running vests. Just contact them with your details and tell them you intend to run with 'Running Crazy' on their behalf. In addition we will provide you with a 'Running Crazy' Certificate confirming your achievement and result, and also a special commemorative prize. Just specify the charity name in your 'Application'.
We know how important it is to have a conveniently located hotel. Our quality hotel is just perfect for the Berlin Half Marathon and is just 800 metres from the race start. You will make it to the start line in plenty of time (great for that last toilet visit!). You don't want to share a portable toilet with 39,999 others!
The last few years have seen perfect weather conditions for running - cool but sunny.

· Average monthly rainfall - 3''
Berlin is a vibrant capital city. It is known for it's liberalism and the people are genuinely friendly with almost all speaking a good level of English. Most menus etc are printed in English and of course we have a great carbo-loading meal planned for the night before the race, and a celebration party to rival all after it. We will provide you with a Berlin city map, a list of ideas of things to see and do including tips we have learnt from our time here. There are stacks of museums and galleries and all sorts of tours (Bus, Boat, Walk) taking in some of the stories and history of this place. The 'Running Crazy' representative will be on hand most evenings too, to help you get the most from your time away.
This weekend offers a great opportunity for Clubs, or training partners to get together.
Some Clubs already make this event their annual outing, and it is ideally suited. Travelling together may also be more convenient. There are discounts available for large groups (20+), but even a group of just 10, will qualify for an additional prize for the first or last to finish.
Our all inclusive prices are extremely competitive - from as little as just £99/€119/US$169 for the weekend - we know we cannot be beaten on price - and our runners continually tell us that they receive so much more on a 'Running Crazy' weekend break. All our 'resort races' offer half board accommodation, and for our 'Big City' races we know all the best value places to eat, drink and have fun. Indeed we book these for our pre-race and after race gatherings, meaning groups and individuals can just sit back, relax, make new running pals and let us do any worrying. No tourist traps for our clients! We know these races and places inside out, and will advise on what to see and do over the weekend, provide directions and maps - all very useful when on a tight timescale. All you have to do is run!
