20 years of RheinEnergieMarathon Cologne – registration opened


Registration for 2016 opened

On October 2, 2016 the RheinEnergieMarathon Cologne will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Themed “20 years. Your Cologne. Your aim.” the race will again combine top athlete and recreational sports, Rhenanian cheerfulness and runners’ ambitions, carnival costumes and functional garments and end up in a big party after the finish.


The online registration for the anniversary race is open now.

The early bird tariffs for the registration fees will be valid until December 31, 2015: A bib number for the marathon costs € 66, the half marathon starts with € 44 and the relay team competition with € 135.


In 1997 Cologne Marathon’s history began with a world record: No marathon before had 13,000 registered runners for its premiere edition.
The half marathon was added in 2006 and has steadily developped to Germany’s no. 2 on this distance.
Moreover, the relay team competition completes the portfolio. Four runners share the entire distance of 42.195 kilometres. Thus, it does not have to be a full marathon to get to know and enjoy the running feeling in Cologne.
