In preparation for the 40th Vienna City Marathon on 23 April 2023, we are organising several running events in Vienna: the VCM Winter Running Series. For motivation, to air out and to meet friends. It's more fun together. So we run with energy through autumn and winter!
The heart of the VCM Winter Running Series is the Prater Hauptallee with a new route variation around the Lusthaus.
Look forward to a special highlight on 12 March. On this day we will start the "2nd Vienna Calling Half Marathon" on the Reichsbrücke. Experience the record route like at the beginning of the Vienna City Marathon and like at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge by Eliud Kipchoge. We have already held a half marathon on this route in May 2021.
One refreshment point for 5 km & 10 km at the Stadionbad area (on the stadium side of the Hauptallee)
water, Powerade, Bananas and biscuits = finish line refreshment
The reduced prices apply to young people under 25 and seniors over 60.
