The 2022 BMW Berlin Marathon that was slated for Sunday 25 September went down on the streets of Germany’s capital Berlin with up to 45,000 athletes competing in different marathon disciplines.

This year’s Marathon marked the 48th edition of the Berlin Marathon attracting the registration of more than 45,000 athletes from 150 nations across the world participating without the covid-19 restriction, unlike the 47th edition.

The annually held marathon saw both men and women compete in what was termed by many athletes at the event as conducive weather in Berlin, the German capital which was ideal for racing with about 52 degrees (11 degrees Celsius) after experiencing slight showers a night before the official day and more precipitation.
