From 2011 on, the Berlin Wall Race commemorates the victims of the former border, which separated Germany between 1961 and 1989. The course follows the former border strip, that makes a little over 161 kilometers around western Berlin. Patron is the former GDR civil-rights activist Rainer Eppelmann.

In 2018, the Berlin Wall Race will take place on 11-12 August, the course will be run clockwise. Registration for the seventh edition of Berlin’s longest run will open on 9 November, 2017. The official announcement containing all the details will be published here soon. Due to the huge demand and the limited number of starting places a quick registration is highly recommended.
