Music Marathon

The unmistakeable Marathon atmosphere in the city is enhanced by the Music Marathon. Dynamic concerts and dance performances around the course on Marathon day provide a lot of fun, an easy feeling, and not least some permitted doping for the minds of the runners from all over the world. In its present-day form the Music Marathon consists of eight podiums spread out around the marathon circuit presenting a continuous programme of music and dance with a very varied range of genres.

In this way hundreds of musicians and dancers taking turns to perform in the Music Marathon programme create an exceptional atmosphere in the crowded streets of this city, which in 2013 proudly held the title of European Capital of Culture.
