Berlin Marathon 2020

Run for #TeamSallyArmy in one of the six World Major Marathons!

Starting and finishing at the city's famous Brandenburg Gate, the looped course also takes in sights such as the Reichstag, Berliner Dom and the Berlin Cathedral. 

The Berlin Marathon is one of the most popular city-wide road races in the world!

Over 40,000 people take part in the annual marathon, with millions more lining the streets to support the runners. Along the route on the day of the marathon, around 60 bands play to create a unique race day atmosphere for runners and spectators alike.

Why run for #TeamSallyArmy ?

At The Salvation Army we work hard to fight injustice and exploitation. Our aim is to change the world we live in, to literally transform lives of those who need it most, whether that be victims of human trafficking or modern-day slavery or those suffering from homelessness, addiction or domestic abuse.  We work on the ‘front line’ everyday fighting against some of the greatest evils of our time to help people break through barriers.

How will I reach my fundraising target?

We support you throughout your fundraising journey:  from our fundraising welcome pack, to our Facebook support group, to a breathable Sally Army running jersey, we stay in touch every step of the way – giving out tips & tricks, and helping you reach your goals.
