The Berlin Wall Race—Uta Joins this Poignant 100-Mile Race


Time:
  • Start 6:00 am, August 11: Individual Runners. Cut-Off Time 12:00 pm, August 12.
  • Start 7:00 am, August 11: Relay Teams. Cut-Off Time 10:00 am, August 12.
Location:

Start and Finish are both located in Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn Stadium, Cantianstrasse 24, in 10437 Berlin. There will be a total of 26 aid stations on the course.

A wall 100 miles long separated East and West Berliners and the German people for more than 28 years before it was peacefully torn down in 1989 and the cold war ended. Now the Berlin Wall 100-mile race brings runners to the place where the Wall once stood: combining an Ultra Marathon with a moving commemoration of the victims who sought freedom. This annual event began in 2011, symbolically held on the weekend closest to the August 13, 1961, anniversary of the Wall’s construction. This year the course runs clockwise and follows almost exclusively the official well-known “Wall Trail.” It includes flat and paved roads, forests and fields, with 26 aid stations along the way.

Uta will join the Team Axel Springer relay squad for the event. “I grew up on the East side and lived through this heartbreaking time of separation with my fellow Germans,” said Uta. “I am so honored to be part of a running event that focuses on civil rights for all. I want to thank Team Axel Springer for asking me to run with them.”

Together with her fellow runners, Uta is looking forward to running this trail of history. She has special memories of the first months in freedom when she won the Berlin Reunification Marathon in 1990 that celebrated liberty and unity only three days before East and West of Germany became one country again.
