The 43rd BMW BERLIN MARATHON, which saw a total entry of 41,283 runners from 122 countries, was held on 25 September 2016. On 60 metres of the 42.195 km route the asphalt surface gave way to a pleasantly elastic synthetic surface. The race was run on a Polytan running surface in Hertha-Blau developed specially by Polytan.

The short section was the brainchild of main sponsor BMW and presented as the "BMW Fast Lane powered by Polytan". With the mobile running track Polytan not only brought a touch of stadium flair to the route, but also gave runners another little burst of speed for the last few kilometres. While a new world record was missed by just six seconds, the winning time was still the best in the world this year. Yet again, first place went to an Ethiopian, who came in at 2.03.03 hours.

The race is part of the Abbott World Marathon Majors series alongside Tokyo, Boston, London, Chicago and New York and is an IAAF Gold Label road race.
