New Year”s resolutions tested to the limit in Berlin

For most people New Year”s Day consists of nothing more energetic than rolling out of bed at around lunchtime to watch the Sound of Music on television.

But for many residents of the German capital Berlin, the first day of the year is an opportunity to go for a run around some freezing streets, starting by the famous Brandenburg Gate in the heart of the city.

Each January 1st, the Berlin New Year Run sees plucky locals brave the winter air and their rotten hangovers to run around the four kilometre course, getting themselves in the spirit for the forthcoming year.

The race is seen as the second part of an event which straddles the passing of one year into the next, as even more runners gather elsewhere in the city at the Mommsenstadion to compete in the New Year”s Eve run, with competitors donning all manner of colourful costumes.
