The start of the 19th Zurich Marathon will be at 8 a.m. on Sunday, 10 April 2022, at Mythenquai. Around two hours will pass before the last runners leave the city after 14 kilometres at Tiefenbrunnen station in the direction of the Meilen turning point. At this point, the front runners will already be approaching the city limits again in Zollikon.


The start for the 2nd half marathon is at 08.15 hrs at Seestrasse 111 in Herrliberg. The half marathon course starts at the marathon turning point near Meilen. The finish is in the Mythenquai area.



The start for the 10th Züri Cityrun is at 2.15 pm at Mythenquai. The running course of the Cityrun leads via Seefeld to the city centre and thus past the sights into the city centre. No cars, no public transport and therefore free way and running pleasure guarantee!


Along the course


The spectators have various food options along the route, from breakfast to late lunch, sweet or salty, hot or cold. At the General Guisan Quai and the Bürkliplatz - with a speaker updating you and the runners passing by six times – everyone will find something to eat.






















Bellvue and Quaibrücke

The Bellvue and the Quaibrücke will be passed four times. On this spectacular route section, everyone will be satisfied by the diversity of foods and drinks.



The first time passing by the Paradeplatz, the runners will still be energetic, but the second time they already mastered 39km and will need the spectators supporting and cheering.

At the Talstrasse you can watch the runners at the food station, where over 10’000 drinks will be handed out every 20 minutes.



Various live bands will take care for great atmosphere along the course. The rhythms and sounds will offer entertainment, not only for the spectators but also for the runners. Along the route from the Mythenquai, where the start and finish is located, to the turning point Meilen, over 25 bands and groups will perform for the spectators and athletes.




The elite reaches an average speed of about 20 km/h, while the last ones have an average of about 7.5 km/h.
