WVV Half Marathon

3000 participants and you are part of it.

Half Marathon

The WVV Half Marathon will start on 26. Mai 2024 at 9:00 am. More than 3.000 participants enjoy this marathon in spring that leads past many of Würzburg's architectural monuments. Track is measured by the directives of DLV. You'll find the Conditions of Participation here.

Free Choice of Distance

Changing from Marathon to Half Marathon is possible, as long as the race is finished after 21,1 km. If the distance of a marathon is not reached the distance of the half marathon will be counted. Important: Victories and age group-scores will only be accounted for when the participant passes the official timing-line of the Half Marathon-finish. If you cross the Half Marathon control mat and break off afterwards there won't be an account for the Half Marathon.


Start: 9:00 am in front of Congress Centre Würzburg (CCW)
Finish deadline: 2:30 pm (5:30 hours)

Victory Ceremony

Those gaining one of the first three places in one of the overall classifications will be honored right after the respective competition. As the athletics regulation says only the gross time can be taken to analyze the placement. The gross time is the time between the starting shot and walking over the finish line.

If the net time would be taken it could happen that a runner of a line behind has a faster time but was not the one walking over the finish line first. This would be confusing for visitors, runners and the media.

The first one crossing the finish line should be the winner and celebrated.
Ceremonies are only for Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km race and Firmenlauf. All other runs are about being a part of the fun.

This is to inform you that starting from this year’s marathon the Wuerzburg-Marathon will not grant any benefits for runners from foreign countries. There will be no price moneys paid to the winners, and no invitations for visa application will be issued.
