What’s It Like to Run the Berlin Marathon? This Documentary Will Show You

‘2021 Zwift Academy Run: Road to Berlin’ is a brief but deep look into the power of community, commitment, and healthy competition.

Good views and reliable accountability buddies — the showrunners at Zwift believe that’s the secret to dedicated training and better performance.

In this 20-minute documentary, a diverse, international group of runners arrive in Germany to run the Berlin Marathon. Each runner featured in the film trained for the in-real-life race through Zwift’s virtual running program. The result? Maybe indoor training can improve outdoor PRs.

Six runners. Twenty weeks to train. One epic experience.
