20 years of RheinEnergieMarathon Cologne: kick-off for the anniversary


We will celebrate our RheinEnergieMarathon Cologne’s 20th anniversary on October 2, 2016 – incredible! Is it in fact so long ago that the gun for the first edition in 1997 was shot?!

Meanwhile some things have changed …


We would like to look back with you, reminisce about mutual experiences and remember “the good old days”.

In case you have some funny or curious anecdotes, interesting stories or the like on the Cologne Marathon please do not hesitate to contact us.

We of course would like to share them with you.


The kick-off for the campaign themed “Do you remember …?” was already set, yesterday you could admire the 1997 course map on Facebook.

And thus we would like to continue. Further interesting news will be posted soon. Stay tuned!
