About Neujahrsmarathon Zürich - New years marathon Zurich

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the annaul Neujahrsmarathon Zurich. Last year’s innovation, the common start of all categories (except kids-marathon) at midnight, was a complete success. Hence we will keep this concept for the forthcoming editions. With this concept, the marathon runners can decide during the race whether they would like to run the full marathon or rather the half or quarter marathon.However, some fine-tuning and optimization will be done this year. In order to mitigate the bottleneck on the first meters of the course, we will introduce net times in the ranking list, which should be a sign for increased patience at the start of the race and hence automatically give more space to each single runner.The Neujahrsmarathon Zürich (New Year's Marathon Zurich) is a marathon race held on January 1 each year, since 2005. 

The start takes place at midnight, exactly at the beginning of the New Year. Start and finish are located in Schlieren near Zurich in Switzerland. The track consists of four laps along the river Limmat. Besides the marathon, there are also a half marathon (two laps), a 10 kilometer run (one lap) as well as a marathon relay. The start of the marathon and the finish area of all races are located inside a sports hall. The participants run through the sports hall after each lap.
