VCM Winter Running Series

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 10 March 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 Series is organised by the Sport- und Leichtathletikclub Wien (SLW) and implemented by members of the VCM team.

All events of the VCM Winter Running Series are officially AIMS-measured and part of the World Athletics Global Calendar.
