Record of participants, at the 15th Borealis Linz Donau Marathon
The Junior Marathon at the Linzer stadium was the beginning of the marathon weekend.
This year, the OÖN Junior Marathon powered by ORF Radio OÖ was already happening the 11th time. A day before the adults started their distances, about 2.700 kids gathered to run like the big ones. Since the beginning of March, the different competitions were fully booked. There were three different distances for the youngest runners, starting at 40m, to 400m and going to the longest distance of 4200m for teens.
Marathon coordinatior Wolfgang Lehner and Linz marathon organizer Ewald Tröbinger said about the junior marathon: "Their is a bigger demand from year to year. Already weeks ago we had to close the registration for the different competitions, as we were fully booked. As after the marathon is before the marathon, we start talking about innovations and devolopment possibilities for this popular junior marathon in 2017."
Saturday evening the 20.000 participant mark was reached for the first time in the 15 year old history of the Linz Marathon.
"We are really happy, that we brook this mark of 20.000 at the anniversary marathon. This shows the continual development in Linz over the last 15 years and that our efforts to garantuee services and quality for participants is honored." LIVA Marathon coordinator Wolfgang Lehner says happily.
