What’s the challenge?

We would love for you to join our team of runners as we take on one of Europe’s most iconic Marathon distance races: the Berlin Marathon!

Take on the Berlin Marathon’s iconic Marathon distance event and join fellow runners on this international course. The Berlin Marathon route is considered to be the fastest in the world and is a popular annual highlight for both runners and spectators.

This internationally loved event was voted #1 in the 2019 UK Running Awards. Complete your application for a spot and we will be in touch with you to update you.

Got your place through the official Berlin Marathon ballot?

If you have got a place through the official Berlin Marathon ballot, you can still run for the RAF Association. Just let us know once you get your place confirmed and we will send out your running top and fundraising pack.
