With Eliud Kipchpoge returning to the streets of Berlin for his sixth BMW Berlin Marathon outing, the NN Running Team is in for an exciting weekend. In this feature, we will provide you with an overview of the BMW Berlin Marathon so you won't miss a thing!

Which NN Running Team athletes will run in Berlin?

Zeineba Yimer is the only woman of the NN Running Team-squad who will run in the German capital. The Ethiopian athlete has shown great form this year already winning the Barcelona Marathon running a time of 2:19:44 and she will be looking to run a solid race in Berlin.

When zooming in on the male field, there will be four NN Running Team athletes lining up at the start. The fastest man alive, Eliud Kipchoge, has made his return to the German capital. It will be his sixth time running the BMW Berlin Marathon and so far Kipchoge has already won four times including his 2:01:o9 world record performance in 2022. What can the Kenyan athlete do this year? Furthermore, NN Running Team athletes Noah Kipkemboi and Moses Koech will also take part in the race as pacers to Kipchoge, and Derseh Kindie will take part running his own race.
