Known for its very fast, very flat course, Berlin is a bucket-list race for hitting a PR or a BQ. Since the race was founded by Berlin baker, Horst Milde in 1977, 11 world records have been set on the course. Ten of those records have been raced on the post-reunification course, which loops its way from the Brandenburg Gate through Berlin’s historic neighborhoods. Add in cool weather and the chance to enjoy Oktoberfest when the race is done, and you’ve got a recipe for an iconic Marathon Major.
Prussian Blue, also known as Berlinisch Blau, is a dark blue color that was accidentily synthesized by Berlin alchemists Johann Jacob Diesbach and Johann Conrad Dippel in the early 18th century. Stable, bright and lightfast, it revolutionized the art world, from Watteau working on Rococo paintings in Paris to Gainsborough’s portraits in London. It inspired Hokusai’s iconic painting The Great Wave off Kanagawa and Picasso used it liberally in his Blue Period. Commercially, it made its way onto everything from flags, clothing, wallpaper and tea, and became the official uniform color of the Prussian army.
