The Linz Marathon Kick Off´s visitors can expect a high quality expert podium with special guest Markus Ryffel, former elite athlete from Switzerland, on January 23rd 2020.

No matter which distance, a good training is the base for a successful participation at the 19. Oberbank Linz Donau Marathon.
You get tips for the training from Markus Ryffel, Switzerland´s record holder over 3.000m and 5.000m, and Oberbank running coach Gerhard Hartmann. Dr. Alfred Fridirk contributes his knowledge of sports medicine. With the Upper Austrian top runner Bernadette Schuster and Linz Marathon Pacemaker Harald Schrenk, the podium will be completed.

"As I had Ups and Downs in my sports career, I´ve experienced on my own body, what you need for a good training. Nowadays I want to share my knowledge and like at the Linz Marathon Kick Off Event I want to get in contact with the runners, in order to make them reach their goals." Markus Ryffel says and is looking forward to his visit in Linz.
