Sightseeing on the run - for everyone at the Vienna City Marathon

At the exciting main event on Sunday, 22 April 2018, there will again be competitions for participants of every age and ability. Apart from the marathon over the classic distance, the half-marathon and relay marathon for teams of 4 people on the day of the marathon, there are children and youth competitions and a 10 km run that starts at the Giant Ferris Wheel one day earlier on 21 April.

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. Consequently, over €182,000 in donations were raised last year.

Diverse program and side events

On the Saturday before the race (21 April 2018), there is also the popular VCM Carbo Loading Party in the Festival Hall of Vienna City Hall. There's delicious pasta and Viennese "Kaiserschmarrn" pancakes to enjoy. The VCM-Expo "Vienna Sports World" will be held at the Exhibition Center on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 April 2018. With the latest trends in running sport, it's the perfect way to get in the mood for the race...
