partnership between the GCH Hotel Group and Berlin Läuft!

As well as providing a range of sports facilities and activities in and around its hotels, the GCH Hotel Group works with major race event organiser Berlin läuft!, which it entered into a partnership with this year. Each year, Berlin läuft! organises eight road running events in Berlin and Brandenburg for all performance classes. Two of its most popular events are the Great 10k Berlin and the BIG 25 Berlin. Discover these unique routes through the German capital and take advantage of discount accommodation for all participants at selected hotels in Berlin (from EUR 68 in a single room/from EUR 78 in a double room). 

Great 10k Berlin - 10 kilometres through the capital 

The Great 10k has become one of the more popular 10k runs in Germany. In 2016, the event broke its attendance record, drawing in over 7,200 runners. At least the same number of athletes is expected on the starting line this year. Starting at Charlottenburg Palace, you will follow a circuit that takes you past all of the major tourist attractions in the west of the city, including the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and the Victory Column on Strasse des 17. Junis. A special highlight is the leg through Berlin Zoo, which starts at kilometre six. Participants run past the rhinoceros, lion and tiger enclosures before following Kantstrasse to Schlossstrasse and then back to Charlottenburg Palace. 

During the weekend of the 8 October 2017, the GCH Hotel Group offers all participants discount accomodations in the Mark Apart Hotel and TRYP by Wyndham Berlin Ku'dammbietet which are located near the starting point and final destination.

BIG 25 Berlin - The pioneer on the German city run scene

Slip on your running shoes on 14 May 2017! Starting at the Olympic Stadium, the BIG 25 run will see a great many runners embarking on a 25-kilometre route though the centre of Berlin. Formerly known as ‘25 km de Berlin’, the BIG 25 is a pioneer on the German city run scene. It was responsible for launching the popularity of running in Germany and motivating people to get out on the road. And running has attracted more and more sports fans in the past couple of decades – recent years have seen nearly 11,500 runners participate in Big 25 Berlin, with fantastic support provided by around 50,000 spectators.
