The 18th edition of the METRO Marathon Düsseldorf, which has been postponed to October 24, 2021, has to be canceled. “The planning situation is still uncertain. We cannot give the participants any security at the moment, and we as the organizers cannot plan comprehensively with all the necessary service providers and trades ”, explains race director Sonja Oberem from rhein-marathon düsseldorf GmbH.
As a “replacement”, the METRO Marathon Düsseldorf can also be covered virtually again this year. The time slot for this is from October 22nd to 24th, 2021. Further information will follow on our website and on our social media platforms.
After the renewed cancellation – the marathon in the sports city of Düsseldorf could not take place in 2020 due to the corona pandemic – Oberem is now looking confidently to the coming year. “The date for 2022 is set. It’s April 24th. ”In addition to the classic marathon distance of 42.195 kilometers, the METRO Marathon Düsseldorf will again offer a half marathon as well as the popular company relay and the Kids Cup in the coming year.
All starting places from 2020 will be transferred to the 2022 marathon free of charge. If the new date doesn’t work for you, please write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your team from METRO marathon düsseldorf
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!
