They give power and comfort: the aid stations of the Berlin Wall Race
They are a distinctive characteristic of our Wall Race, the 27 aid stations (VPs) along the 100-Mile course. No matter if hosted by private people, close friends, clubs or companies – with dedication and a great portion of enthusiasm, every year they are part of the team every 5 to 8 kilometers, and cater fresh energy and a lot of motivation.

VP 2 Lauftreff Luebars (km 12.63)
VP 3 Oranienburger Chaussee (km 18.37)

VP 8 Schoenwalde (km 46.20)
VP info: Our aid station in Schoenwalde is going to be organized by the Peace Runners for the first time. We are very proud to have them onboard since they have a very special relationship to the Berlin Wall. Already in 1989, they ran in a „peace run relay“ along the back then still existing Wall, among them Ingo Sensburg and ultra-running legend Helga Backhaus.
VP 9 Falkenseer Chaussee (km 51.96)
VP 10 Karolinenhoehe (km 58.50)
The Pagel family
VP info: The legendary aid station in the Kladower Kuckuckstrasse at Pagel’s and their friends. Part of the Wall Race since its premier, party atmosphere included! The front yard is turned into a 100Meilen fan mile, an extra DJ puts the heat on – be surprised!
Cut-off Solo and Relay: 19:30
VP info: The team of Maxi Dorgathen will supervide the aid stations in the beautiful park grounds of Schloss Sacrow for the first time. Maxi: „Only extraordinary things stay unforgettable. And the 100Meilen are unforgettable. We will try to provide a special moment in Sacrow for all participants.“
VP 13 Revierfoersterei Krampnitz (km 77.23)
Mike Stoewer and the Waldjugend
VP-Info: The team of the Deutsche Waldjugend is onboard since the 100Meilen premiere, organized by Mike Stoewer. In the past years, they have developed into a dedicated and sometimes also quite crazy team that has lots of fun pulling together an aid station of a distinctive charme and character.
Team Toralf Gerstaecker
VP info: Suppossedly there are runners, who only join the 100Meilen for the aid station at the Meierei in Potsdam… But that is only a rumor. Fact is, Toralf Gerstaecker’s team seves fresh and cool beer from the brewery next door. An intermin stop is worthwhile at least for this reason!
VP info: Motto of the volunteers of the Potsdamer club is: „Against indifference“ Why? „Only in this place at the Griebnitzsee the last original Wall remains can be found. They silently press charges against the SED system of injustice, hold alive the memory of the victims of the Wall and display the difference between dictatorship and democracy.“
The Thiel family
VP info: The Thiel family lives directly at the Koenigsweg and joins in with passion since 2013. Hot potatoes and fresh coffee are always served here. Unforgettable: The Australian runner Tia Jones was ready to quit, but stayed in the race with the help of persuasion and cuisine and medical help, and placed third eventually.
Cut-off Solo: 00:30, Cut-off Relay: 00:00
VP info: Since 2013 the city of Teltow is on duty for the 100Meilen with many employees in the Jahnsport gym. Here the tired runner can find everything he or she dearly desires: showers, matts for refreshment naps and the legendary noodle soup! The motto of the Teltowers could not be more true: Always forward, never backward!
VP 18 Osdorfer Strasse (km 109.70)
VP 19 Lichtenrade (km 115.40)
Team Andreas Roth
VP 20 Kirchhainer Damm (km 119.77)
Team Nina’s parents
VP info: The specialty at the Kirchhainer Damm aid station, run by the Blisse family and their friends, are their several handmade treats. Cakes, cookies, bread or meatballs – everything is made by the volunteers. And at night a warm dish is served again, pasta or a soup. The spoiling factor is increased by chairs and loungers, which invite for a short stay.
VP 21 Buckow (km 126.20)
VP info: Here things get going with the original life-sized 100Meilen Buddy Bear. Loud music and great atmosphere – the motto of the aid station in Buckow. Or better: It them, who always laugh.

Team Thomas Moschell
VP 24 Dammweg (km 142.70)
Team BSS Ost GmbH
VP info: The company BSS Ost GmbH is on duty at aid station 24 since 2015. Music and self-made cake are only two of the many highlights at this aid station.
