100 days until the Frankfurt Marathon

Mainova Frankfurt Marathon
Sun 29 October 2023


The Mainova Frankfurt Marathon will celebrate its 40th anniversary on 29 October 2023. Today it is exactly 100 days until the start of Germany's oldest city marathon, which again promises to be a very special running experience.

More than 27,000 participants are expected at this year’s Mainova Frankfurt Marathon. In addition several thousand spectators and numerous action points and bands along the course await the participants and celebrate Frankfurt’s largest street festival.

The Mainova Frankfurt Marathon is a major sporting event with a long tradition in Frankfurt. In 1981, the running event was held for the first time and thus took on a pioneering role in Germany. Frankfurt was the first city in the Federal Republic to close streets for runners and allow a marathon in the city centre.

The 2023 marathon weekend will be dedicated to the anniversary: participants can look forward to an 80s festival on the course, the history of the marathon will be presented in the form of a large exhibition at the marathon fair, and of course there will be a special gift for the marathon runners.

If you are not yet registered, then take the opportunity to register. Start training and become part of the unforgettable anniversary edition of the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon 2023.
