Košice Peace Marathon - Marathon in Slovakia - Race Connections

Peace Marathon in Slovakia

The Marathon has been organized in Košice continuously since 1924. It is also unique and different from other historic marathons in that right from the very first edition it has strictly maintained the prescribed distance of 42.195 km.

The marathon course, one of the fastest, was created in Košice 20 years ago for the 1997 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships. That course is still fast and very attractive for both elite and fun runners.

In Košice, the gothic pearl of Europe where the fundamentals of the modern marathon movement were set in 1924, runners can discover why it was more recently chosen as European Capital of Culture 2013 and the Best European City of Sport 2016.

Participation and competing in the Košice Peace Marathon are governed by the General Terms of KPM, the rules of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the competition rules of the Slovak Athletics Federation (SAZ) and the provisions of these Propositions.
