A bit of history

The very first Vilnius Marathon was launched in 1990. With a few pauses and difficulties, it reached  2001, when the Lithuanian Athletic Federation organised the first mass run Maxima Cup, which became the predecessor of the Vilnius Marathon.

In 2004 Vilnius Marathon debuted as a feast for runners and the people of Vilnius. The event was positively met by Vilnius City Municipality, which saw it as a way to foster a healthy lifestyle, add a new festival to the city’s calendar of events and put Vilnius on the global map of acknowledged marathon cities.

The distance of 42 km 195 metres was first conquered by runners in Vilnius on September 11, 2004. This day opened a new page in the history of Vilnius as a little over 200 professional and non-professional runners from 10 countries around the world joined the event.

In 2006 the Half Marathon distance was added to the programme.

Vilnius Marathon became a member of AIMS in 2007.

Race Course Record

The Vilnius marathon course record of 2:21:15 was set by Richard Rotich from Kenya in 2007. The woman’s record of 2:43:13 was set by Vaida Žūsinaitė of Lithuania during the 2014 Vilnius marathon.
