There are marathons in numerous cities, but the Cologne Marathon is unique: a mixture of elite and regular runners, carnival, a folk and running festival! The entire city is vivid and the spectators cheer passionately for the runners on the course! Everywhere you may hear your name and you run through espaliers! This is something that you have to experience! Welcome.
