Description

Where guard towers and barbed wire once stood, runners will this weekend pound the 100-mile (160 kilometre) path along the former Berlin Wall in a race with victims of the Cold War relic at its heart. On the eve of the race a group of athletes visit a memorial dedicated to those who died trying to cross the border between East and West Germany.
