2021 METRO Marathon Dusseldorf
New date on 24 October
Düsseldorf, 18 December 2020. The METRO Marathon Düsseldorf 2021 will not take place on 11 April 2021 as originally planned, but on 24 October 2021. “Due to the uncertain planning situation caused by the Corona pandemic, we are forced to postpone the marathon until autumn,” explains race director Sonja Oberem of rhein-marathon düsseldorf GmbH.
In addition to the classic marathon distance of 42.195 kilometres, the 18th edition of the METRO Marathon Düsseldorf in the sports city of Düsseldorf will once again feature a half marathon as well as the popular company relay and the Kids Cup. Registration is expected to open at the beginning of the year, with the exact date yet to be announced.
On October 24th, 2021 the time has come again – walk the most beautiful city on the Rhine with everything it has to offer on 42.195 km.
After starting at the Rheinterrassen, you will pass the Aquazoo after a few kilometers. Then the route makes its way through almost all parts of the city. Then you cross the Oberkasselerbrücke to the other side of the Rhine in a large loop through the noble district of Oberkassel, before continuing over the bridge towards Königsallee.
Keeping a close eye on the futuristic Gehry buildings, the route leads through the iconic zoo district and then heads for the Medienhafen before heading once again along Königsallee towards the destination directly on the Rhine. There you will find the well-deserved finisher medal and the corresponding strengthening.
After the finish, the nearby historic town invites you to celebrate.
With this in mind, RUNDAY IS FUNDAY!
