Uta will be cheering on the tens of thousands of runners from around the world who have registered for this year’s marathon. Incredibly, applications may surpass last year’s more than 61,000 from 137 nations. Uta is honored to have been asked to join the Berlin Marathon as an ambassador and former champion. Now, in her role as a running expert for the SCC Events, the organizer of the marathon, she will be participating in many of the Marathon Weekend activities. You can read her advice to runners — from elites to beginners — on the Berlin Marathon’s Website under Uta’s Running Column. She provides training tips that cover the weeks leading up to the marathon, and also advice on how to stay injury free.

Below you can find some of the events she plans to attend. We will update her appearances as more information is available.

Uta Is Honorary Chair of the “Lucky 13” Louisa May Alcott Orchard House Run/Walk

  • 11:00 am

Alcott Elementary School, 93 Laurel St., Concord, MA 01742.

Uta loves taking part in this annual fun and historic event, which celebrates America’s “First Running Girl.” 150 years ago, Louisa May Alcott extolled the virtues of running for women. “Louisa May just got it,” said Uta. “And such a fantastic group now carries on her tradition. I am honored to be part of this rich history of women and fitness.”

The 5K/10K event is open to all runners, walkers, “strollercisers,” and wheelchair athletes of all abilities. The event supports the Louisa May Alcott Orchard House, home to Louisa May when she was growing up and made famous in her writings. The event honors the famous author and her family, who were devoted to social justice, education and the arts, and youth fitness. They were pioneers in physical fitness and health for both boys and girls in the 1800’s.

Uta will join participants for a fun run on the beautiful historic course in Concord. The event will be held rain or shine, and Uta looks forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. You can register the morning of the event beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Saturday, August 11, and Sunday, August 12, 2018 — Berlin (Germany)

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

  • 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.

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.

There will be live music and 50,000 fans are expected to be cheering on the runners — more women than men — out on the course. In the finish area, water, tea and Erdinger alkoholfrei (alcohol-free beer) will be available for all participants. “City Night is such a fun and joyful celebration for everyone from beginners to serious runners. And some might use it as a great test run in preparation for the Berlin Marathon,” said Uta. “I just love to see the city so full of energy and friendship on this special night.”

Uta will join runners at the start line, wishing everyone well, and then run the 10K on a course that goes through downtown Berlin and gives both fast and relaxed runners the chance to enjoy the warmth and comradery of the runners and the crowd. Course map:
