HALLO BERLIN

Hallo Berlin! 

Ich bin ein Berliner. Berlin was always going to be our first new chapter when we decided to grow out of London. Why? Because this city only ever asks: why not? A creative powerhouse of people, freedom and excitement Berlin literally breaks down walls, rips up the rules and unites people like few other cities in the world. If you could bottle this metropolises ‘anything goes’ attitude the world would be a much better place. We love you Berlin.

Berlin is also a running dynamo. This is where people come to get their personal best. It’s where records are shattered and dreams are made.  Forget what you think you know about running in Berlin though. We won't wait for the Verkehrsübergang to go green – and neither should you. Leave your inhibitions at home, jump straight in and join the movement. Berlin life is about to get a lot more loud. 

Welcome to Berlin Midnight Runners.

Berlin FAQs


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR YOUR EVENTS?

Head to our Facebook page and sign up through Eventbrite. Our events are free but we need to keep a track on numbers attending!

 

2. THE EVENT SAYS IT’S FULL, CAN I STILL COME?

We have to keep a limit on numbers so sadly not - but please sign up to the waiting list and we will let you know if there are any late cancellations. We have to put a cap on our events for safety reasons. We recommend signing up to another future MR event.

 

3.  IS THERE A FEE?

No – Berlin Midnight Runners is totally free.

 

4.  HOW OFTEN/ WHEN DO YOU RUN?

Please check our Facebook page for the latest details but typically:

  • Wednesday 10km Boot Camp Run - EVERY WEEK - starting at 7:30pm (please arrive by 7:15pm to check in and leave your bag)

  • Midnight Runs - ONCE A MONTH (ish) on Friday/ Saturday - usually starts at 8pm

 

5.  HOW FAST DO YOU RUN/ AM I FAST ENOUGH?

The speed of our group varies between 4min / km to 6 min / km (6.5 min/ miles to 9.5 min /miles). On our 10km bootcamp runs the workout stops are a perfect opportunity for slower runners to catch up with the faster ones but to enjoy them, you should be capable of running 10k in 60 mins. You should be comfortable in running 10k.

6. WHAT DISTANCE DO YOU TYPICALLY RUN?

  • Wednesday Boot Camp Run – 10km but we stop every 2km to engage in awesome boot camp exercises
  • Midnight Runs –  typically around 10 km long

 

7. WHERE DO YOU MEET UP?

  • Wednesday Boot Camp Run – meet outside Zollpackhoff close to Hauptbahnhof
  • Sunday / Midnight runs – varies but usually in Central Berlin. Have a look at our Facebook page for details

 

10. IS THERE A BAG CHECK AVAILABLE?

  • Wednesday Boot Camp Run – Yes, there is an opportunity to store your clothes & bags securely on Wednesday. Please turn up at least 15 minutes before the run to securely store your bag.
  • Midnight Runs – No, typically runners will pack light and carry a small rucksack if needed.

 

11. WHO ORGANISES MIDNIGHT RUNNERS?

Midnight Runners is organised by a group of volunteers, known as Crew Captains – you will recognise them by the Pink C bands at events. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes and none of the Crew are paid by Midnight Runners. We all have other jobs but are enthusiastic about keeping running inclusive and fun.

 

12. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU PLAY?

It varies from event to event, but it's always good running music! We also carry a bunch of Ultimate Ears Boom and Megaboom speakers as well as the PartyBag so Berlin can hear us ;-)

 

13. WHAT ARE THE ‘MIDNIGHT’ RUNS?

Each month we organise a special run on Friday / Saturday which is themed and followed by an after-run party! It is a lot of fun!

 

14. COULD YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE AFTER-RUN PARTY?

Sure. After the Midnight Run (typically around 11pm) we head to a bar for a party and to grab a few drinks. There is a DJ, dance floor and, like in any bar, a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

 

15. DOES EVERYONE GO AS THEY ARE TO THE AFTER-RUN PARTY OR IS THERE SOMEWHERE TO GET CHANGED?

Most people go as they are, but of course you can get changed. There are no showers, though.

This wonderful bunch bring so much energy every week - hover over their pictures to find out more!

When Jody joined for his first run, he hit us like a tornado. From week one, he was eager to help out - planning routes, party venues, and even leading our Tuesday night bootcamps! One thing is for sure, no matter what JB does, he always gives 150% 💪🏼  Not surprisingly for an Action Hero, JB's list of running achievements is pretty epic. Alongside several impressive long trail runs and marathons, he completed the 90k Ultravasan in Sweden in less than 9 hours! AMAZING 🏅 Although he's been in East Africa recently that hasn’t stopped him from being actively involved in the MR community. Not only has he continued to help us in London but he's also started a new MR group in Africa with runners from all around the world 🗺   This man is a true leader. He inspires and motivates; he encourages and he challenges. Jody, we could not be more glad that you joined our community!

As regular Midnight Runners will profess our community goes way beyond running. MR is not only about the sport we love but also about the community based around running. Let us introduce Theo, who completely blew our minds this year by organising Love Trails Festival🏔🌾  If Midnight Runners is all about bringing awesome people to get fit and socialise in an urban environment then Love Trails is our super cool rural festival counterpart. Love Trails was everything we love in a festival. Music, amazing people, running and incredible scenery.  Theo is an amazing runner - he completed the 90k Ultravassen in a crazy 9hrs 12 mins  🙌🏼🏅Next year we'll see this total hero race in the Sky running championships. We are in awe!  Thanks for the memories Theo, we are packing our tent, trainers, guitar and UE boom ready for Love Trails 2018!  Photo by Daniel Varga 📷
