The Linz Marathon now can present its own mascot - help us to find a name.


The Oberbank Linz Donau Marathon, which already has its 17th edition on April 15th 2018, is a continued story of success. Each year about 20,000 runners come to Upper Austria´s capital, who are eager to run in Linz and who get cheered on by hundred thousands of spectators along the course.

Finally the Linz Marathon can present its own mascot. The company Rasani Design from Leipzig, a specialist in this field, had a great idea for the Linz Marathon. "Together with the Kinderkulturzentrum Kuddelmuddel the idea of the "Lauffeuer" (running fire) for the mascot was born. The mascot signalizes personality, creates additional identification and mediates the Linz-Marathon-message with sympathy and individuality." says Ewald Tröbinger from the OC-Team.

The Linz Marathon Team is now looking for a perfect name for the new pace maker. From now on names can be suggested HERE.
We will raffle a starting position for the 17. Oberbank Linz Donau Marathon on April 15th 2018 under all submissions.
