This is really not an everyday occurence: The ultra runners Conny Balke from Berlin and Karl Rohwedder from Braunschweig tied the knot during the Berlin Wall Race.

Both runners left the course in Henningsdorf about 34 kilometers after the start. Their very personal interim goal was the civil registry office. There they got secretly married in the morning and afterwards returned to the race in order to run together the remaining 134 kilometers – now as Conny and Karl Rohwedder.
