Live/Online/Free coverage of Berlin Marathon?

Postby StumpWater » Fri Sep 28, 2012 7:20 am

If anyone has a link or other information about live coverage of the Berlin races, please post!

Apologies if I've missed the info somewhere on here. If so ... where?

Thanks,
Stephen/SW

SportLemon WILL be carrying the Berlin marathon!!!
It's on their schedule.
I live in WA state, so it's 9 hours difference to Berlin.
Thus it will start at midnight here.

If you've never used SportLemon, they generally have a NON-English commentary!!
But who cares, right??
We want the visuals!!!

Hope you're successful in getting SportLemon!!
It worked for me throughout the DL season!!

They're past the half-marathon mark in 1:02:12.

For the women, 1:10:33.

This is very exciting! They've dropped in a few 3-minute kms but they could get it if they race each other but I think a 2:03:5x time is perhaps most likely now.

And after that, the finish was a bit of an anti-climax. They were both exhausted but it looked like Kimetto didn't want to beat his training partner.

Frankfort is October 28th at 9 a.m. Euro time.

But Chicago is next Sunday.
And the World Half-Marathon is the day before, next Saturday!!

Who sez the season is over?? :D

Weird coincidence here:

Fastest marathon debut, all courses - 2:03:06, Moses Mosop, 2nd to Geoffrey Mutai (Boston 2011)
Fastest marathon debut, record quality course - 2:04:16, Dennis Kimetto, 2nd to Geoffrey Mutai (Berlin 2012).

Shurno 2:23:32, UKR national record...

No new WR ... bummer. I guess 2:03:38 is fast afterall :shock: :mrgreen: .

Seriously, though ... 2:04:13 ... HUGE PERFORMANCES! Congrats to both training partners.

Will be interesting to compare the splits to the EXCELLENT! data/graphic that was posted prior to the race, see where the record attempt started to come into doubt.

Thanks for all of the coverage suggestions above, btw!

Amazing!!
Which brings me to the award for WORST T&FN.com home-page headline ever:

"Mutai, Kebede Wins Berlin Marathon But No Records"

Really? That's your reaction to these awesome times? :roll:

May as well take this:

Huh???

I was referring to the Frankfort GERMANY marathon on Oct 28th!!
Is there one in Frankfort KENTUCKY that day??

If it starts at 9 a.m. European time, then it would be 3 a.m. Kentucky time, right??
I guess that WOULD be early for you Bluegrassers!! :)

Saw some of the womans race on Youtube and there was men running with the women. I thought the IAAF was trying to stop that saying the men where "pacing" the woman and wanted to remove Paula's records. Did that change?
