Vienna City Marathon is an annual event over the classic distance of 42.195 km held in Vienna, Austria since 1984. The first edition was held on March 25, 1984 with a total of 794 competitors.

It is Austria’s largest road running event and the 2010 edition had record participation with 32,940 runners from 108 nations taking part in the day’s races. The race day’s events also include a half marathon, a 4.2K run and a 1km run.The Vienna City Marathon (VCM) in April beckons with an exciting premiere.

The race will finish in front of the Burgtheater Vienna, one of Europe’s largest theatres that plays a seminal role in the German-speaking theatrical world. Magnificent Ringstraße becomes the finishing straight, adjacent Rathausplatz provides ample space for runners and visitors to enjoy and celebrate the event. Most of the course, including the starting area beneath the skyscrapers of modern Vienna, stays unchanged.

Runners can look forward to a really exciting finish on famous Ringstraße in between Burgtheater and City Hall. This finish area is an important evolutionary step for us. It provides new chances for the event as the capacities at the former finish on Heldenplatz have gradually approached their limits”, says race director Wolfgang Konrad.

Course Highlights:

The Vienna City Marathon takes you to Vienna’s most impressive modern and historic sights. It begins between the skyscrapers of the UNO complex, the site of the United Nations. Straight after the start, participants cross the 864 metre long Imperial Bridge (Reichsbrücke) over the beautiful blue waters of the River Danube, accompanied by the world famous melody of the Danube Waltz by Johann Strauß. The race takes you past the Riesenrad or giant ferris wheel, through the green expanse of Prater Park. It then continues on Vienna’s Ring Road, past the famous Opera House, through Vienna’s River Valley to reach Schönbrunn Castle, the former imperial summer residence. On the way back runners can take in the greatest examples of Vienna’s architecture along the Ring Road, from the numerous museums and the Town Hall to the Burg Theatre and the University.
