Start at midnight for all categories

Dear runners,

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 12th 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.

We would be particularly happy to welcoming many kids at this 12th edition of the Neujahrsmarathon, as there will be a kids-marathon on a 750 meters course on New Year’s Eve. The kids-marathon will start on 31 December at 9 p.m. The kids-marathon is free of charge for all participants. All kids get a surprise bag and a campaign medal!

In the sports hall, a DJ and a speaker will entertain the spectators during the whole night.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on New Year‘s Eve 2015/2016 as a runner, volunteer, supporter or party guest at our marathon!

On behalf of the organizing committee,
Roger Kaufmann,
Race Director of the Neujahrsmarathon Zurich
