Big anniversary for the festival of joy of movement


Many success stories have been written at the Linz Marathon in 20 years. Records hit the headlines, personal great moments will remain unforgettable.

The Oberbank Linz Danube Marathon has been a festival of pure joy in movement since 2002. Once a year it not only mobilizes thousands of active people, but also the whole country. Step by step, this running festival has become a landmark of the Upper Austria´s capital Linz.

It will celebrate its milestone anniversary on October 23, 2022. Celebrate with us! Together with many beaming faces, the 19th Oberbank Linz Danube Marathon ran a good five weeks ago on the autumnal main square in Linz through the long-awaited, sun-drenched finish.

Brenda Jerotich Kiprono cracked Lisa-Christina Stublic's 10-year-old record with 2: 30:27 - at the same time an internationally recognized top result. The persistent world health situation continues to pose many hurdles to the planning of major events. The organizers of the Oberbank Linz Danube Marathon have therefore decided to hold it again in the autumn season in 2022 in coordination with their sponsors and partner companies.

The competitions of the 20th Oberbank Linz Danube Marathon will take place on the weekend of 21.-23. October 2022.

Registration for the 20th Oberbank Linz Danube Marathon starts on December 15, 2021, an updated catalog on the most important questions will be made available in advance on the marathon homepage
