New registration system for the 2014 Berlin Marathon opens tomorrow Mon 30th Sep. However, there should be no rush as everyone will be able to pre-register (no fee) for a 2 week period, before a lottery system will select form the pre-registered list. At which time those selected will be given the option of paying the hefty sum of €100 for the pleasure of running the streets and suburbs of Berlin.

€100 is cheap compared to New York $347 for non Us residents - scandalous money!
