Vienna City Marathon, view on the Reichsbrücke (bridge across the Danube)

“Alles Walzer” at the 2014 Vienna City Marathon

Forty thousand runners are expected at the 31st Vienna City Marathon on 13 April, which this year is held under the banner of the Viennese waltz. The event offers a faster-paced route that leads the participants past Vienna’s most beautiful attractions on the run. For the onlookers, cheering on the runners is an event in itself.

The Vienna City Marathon combines running with the classical culture of Vienna: to the sounds of the “Blue Danube” waltz by Johann Strauss, the route of the marathon starts at the Vienna International Centre and leads across the Danube into the green of the Prater, along the Danube Canal to the Ringstrasse, from the Vienna State Opera right out to Schönbrunn Palace, back again to the Ring and the Prater and finally to the finish line at Heldenplatz. More momentum is provided in 2014 by a new section between kilometer 26 and 30, where an undulating section with several inclines to bridges has been omitted – meaning there’s no longer anything to stand in the way of personal records.

Diverse program and side events

The program for the 2014 Vienna City Marathon includes the classic marathon (42.195 kilometers), a half-marathon (21.0975 kilometers) and a relay marathon (4 runners per team). The children’s competition and the International Friendship Party in the impressive ambience of Vienna City Hall take place the day before. Visitors can get in the mood for the event with crash courses in dancing the waltz, Kaiserschmarrn, live music and energy-giving pasta dishes.

At the 30th anniversary in 2013, there were more than 41,000 registrations from 118 nations for all of the competitions. A similar number is expected to attend this year’s event again – early registration recommended!
