Vienna City Marathon
The beautiful city of Vienna is waiting for you. The city is worth exploring on foot, but have you ever considered exploring the city while running 21km or 42km? That is possible if you come to Vienna to participate in the Vienna City Marathon. On this Sunday in April (every year) you can run a full marathon or a half-marathon. Doesn’t that sound cool?
Most big cities in Europe with self-respect arrange their own marathon. But, even though there are marathons in lots of cities, the annual marathon in Vienna is one of the nicest of them all. The race starts from Wagramer Straße / Reichsbrücke at 9:00 in the morning, and you will be running along the Ringstraße, next to the Burgtheater, as you cross the finish line after 21km or 42km. This event is so popular that the Austrian TV channel ORF broadcasts the entire event live on TV.
A maximum of 35,000 participants are allowed to participate in the race, so if this is important to you, it is smart to register as soon as possible. It is also worth knowing that the price increases with time and as more and more people register.
