Dear runners! ❤️
Dear friends of the Vienna City Marathon!
Info from 11 March 2020, 1 pm
We've been torn apart these last few days. Until the very last moment we wanted to organize the 37th Vienna City Marathon (VCM) and we told you so. Your feedback has strengthened us. Nevertheless we noticed how the situation has changed. Europe is in an exceptional situation. In Austria and several other countries far-reaching measures have been taken to contain Covid-19. We have put all our energy into planning this event, the realisation of which has been increasingly questioned. This is perhaps the most difficult announcement we have ever had to make in regard to the VCM. But it is what it is.
The Vienna City Marathon 2020 will not take place.
SEE YOU IN 2021!
Your effort, your joy, your goal. Run your marathon in classical Vienna, the most liveable city of the world, where Eliud Kipchoge ran the first ever marathon in under two hours. We look forward to seeing you at the 37th Vienna City Marathon on April 18 and 19, 2020!
Vienna is imperial, Vienna is vibrant – and the perfect host city for thrilling events. Enjoy the Marathon, the culture and cuisine. Turn the VCM into a sightseeing tour with friends, from the start at the headquarters of the United Nations to the finish in front of the Burgtheater.
The Vienna City Marathon offers two days of running events for the whole family. Runners from 125 nations are part of a great production with the marathon as an IAAF Gold Label race. Enjoy the fantastic finale on Vienna’s Ringstraße.
Real people, real challenge, real happiness. That is the marathon. Instinct, desire, myth. Anxiety, effort, pride. Enjoy your own “Theatre of Emotions” at the Vienna City Marathonon April 18 and 19, 2020!
