Anyone taking a chance that we will have some chance of travelling at this stage and entering?

What do people reckon the chances of Berlin going ahead in 2021?
Anyone else planning to travel for this? Have an entry but havn't booked anything yet.
Have refundable hotel booked but not the flights - looking at German rules for entry I think we still need a negative test as well as the Covid cert - it's tricky to understand the rules. Not sure will the races go ahead but I'd say we'll have a better picture in the next couple of weeks.
Yeah it's probably too early to tell. How's training going?
Was going grand until this week, between heat and work not getting out much, had to get up at 5am yesterday to fit a run in 😒. Up to 20 miles on my LR and entered into Antrim Coast HM as a warm up. Using the Meno plan btw - never fails! How is yours going?
It's going ok, I'm pretty fit just lacking on the long runs. Up to 18 miles. I entered Kilbeggan 10 miler in a few weeks. It's hard to find a few races to do in the build up. Best of luck with the training.
I have just had an email from Berlin confirming registration and they will see me on the 26th.
You have me worried now!! Didn't get any email😨!!!!
I see the cologne marathon is gone... Hopefully that's just a local government ruling.
Frankfurt cancelled as well.
However, just received an email from the Berlin organisers covering PCR test details for it, so they're still planning to go ahead.
They also say you don't need a PCR test if you're vaccinated, but what they've buried away is that you need your second shot to occur before August 11th, which is ridiculous. To enter Germany, you just need to have your second shot 14 days beforehand. That's definitely going to catch a lot of people out

Got the email last night as well, looks like it's auto translated from German so is hard to follow the text. I'm already fully vaxxed so didn't read down through it too much. I see they are doing PCD tests at the expo which is something at least. Very strange that unvaccinated must have PCD test to run the race but only antigen test for the expo, doesn't make sense.
Anyway at least it's positive that the plan is still to go ahead with the race if things don't go to s*!t in the meantime.
The 2nd vaccine requirement had me running to the vaccine centre pdq. 2nd dose 2 weeks ago and formal letter from NHS to confirm it. Went and booked my flights to Berlin last night.
Just go to avoid actaully catching Covid now..!!
