3rd VCM Winter Run

In preparation for the 41st Vienna City Marathon on 21 April 2024, we are organising several running events in Vienna: the VCM Winter Running Series. For motivation and to meet friends. This is how we run with energy through autumn & winter! 

The centrepiece of the VCM Winter Running Series is the Prater Hauptallee with an attractive route around the Lusthaus.

Look forward to a special highlight on March 10, 2024, when we start the "3rd Vienna Calling Half Marathon" on the Reichsbrücke. Experience the record-breaking course like at the start of the Vienna City Marathon and Eliud Kipchoge's INEOS 1:59 Challenge. 

The free start quotas for VCM participants have already been used up. This campaign has ended. Thank you for the great interest!

The VCM Winter Running Series is a proud partner of Erste Bank Sparkasse Running.

The VCM winter running medal is a great souvenir of your run. It is a three-dimensional snowflake and consists of two interlocking wooden parts with a ribbon. The VCM winter running trophy is manufactured in Lower Austria and made from regional wood. We therefore offer a resource-saving and sustainable memento.

Important: There is no reordering on site! If you would like to receive a medal, you must order it in advance.

The top 3 in the overall standings of each race will receive their VCM Winter Run trophy at the award ceremony, regardless of whether they order it or not.
