Dorit Schmiel

The Wall Race annually remembers the construction of the Wall and the victims of Germany’s separation. The 100-Mile course leads around Western Berlin and matches the former course of the border. Patron is the former GDR civil rights activist Rainer Eppelmann. In 2017 the sixth edition will be carried out on 12/13 August and is dedicated to Dorit Schmiel is honored, who was fatally shot in 1962 in an escape attempt.

Unfortunately, we can’t accept any more registrations for the Berlin Wall Race. In the solo runners‘ competition as well as in all three relay competitions the participant limit was already reached. All confirmed entries can be found in the preliminary starting lists. Round about 100 solo runners are on the waiting list and will – in case of cancellations – move up to the registration list one by one. Further registrations for the waiting list are not possible any more.
