BBIS Participation in 43rd Berlin Marathon

Wednesday, 28 September, 2016

As many of you know this past weekend was the 43rd Berlin Marathon. BBIS participated in two events, the Bambini Race at Gleisdreieck Park where we had fifteen participants from the Primary school, and the Mini Marathon at Postdamer Platz, where we entered 14 runners.

All participants showed the best of sportsmanship, and should be commended for their efforts and achievements. ​ Our best time was achieved by Paul Bales (Grade 10) who completed the marathon (27th place overall) with a time of 15 minutes and 08 seconds. If you see any of the students please congratulate them, they are all very proud of their results, and I am sure would want to share.

A special shout out goes to Dr Kopkas, and Ms Jones Heinz who volunteered their time on Saturday, and the many parents who cheered on the students both at the start and finish line. 

It was a great day had by all. 

Kindest regards,

​Christin Mohammed-King
