20th anniversary

For this year’s RheinEnergieMarathon Cologne participants may look forward to facing multiple specials such as the Saucony Kinvara running shoe, a kölsch beer glas and a new backpack instead of a runners’ race packet.



Promising registration figures

We already recorded pleasant numbers of registration:

5,300 runners registered for the marathon distance –
about 1,000 more than last year.


By now, 10,546 people applied for our half marathon, facing the distance of 21.0975 km. Therefore, we expect the maximum number of participants to be reached.


Overall 18,136 athletes already enrolled for this year’s competitions.



Please inform us whether you or a representative of your editorial staff would like to participate in the race.



Kind regards,

Jan Broniecki, Press Officer
