37th Vienna City Marathon 2020

The Vienna City Marathon 2020 was cancelled.

At the exciting main event on Sunday, April 19, 2020, there will again be competitions for participants of every age and ability. In addition to the main marathon held over the classic distance of 42 km, the half marathon and a relay marathon for teams of 4 people on the day of the marathon, there will also be competitions for children and young people on the day before (April 18) and a 10 km run starting at the Giant Ferris Wheel.

As always, the starting shot for the main competition will be fired at the Vienna International Centre. The route continues over the Reichsbrücke through the Prater, along the Ringstrasse, past magnificent buildings, and then from the Vienna State Opera out to Schönbrunn Palace and back again to the Ringstrasse and Prater. The finish line is finally reached between the Burgtheater and City Hall.

With the theme for the year "Theater of Emotions", the Vienna City Marathon combines the joy of life, the diversity of cultures and the social Viennese tradition of drama with sporty, emotional moments.

Run for Charity

In recent years, the Vienna City Marathon has developed into a platform for social and charity projects and numerous participants get involved for their favorite ones. In recent years, over 500,000 euros in donations have been raised.

Diverse program and side events

On the Saturday before the race, the popular VCM Carbo Loading Party will also be held in the Festival Hall of Vienna City Hall. Delicious pasta and Viennese "Kaiserschmarrn" will be served. The VCM-Expo "Vienna Sports World" will be held in the Marx Halle (Karl-Farkas-Gasse 19, 1030 Vienna) on the Friday and Saturday. The newest trends in running sport are the perfect way to get in the mood for the race.
