The relay race, the DAK-Family-Run as well as the Schnupperlauf benefit from the new date by having the highest amount of runners incremental.
From the Holstentor to the Baltic Sea. The marathon runners will be starting at the historical 800-years-old inner-city. After circumnavigating the Holstentor the track leads directly to the Baltic Sea coast and then back to the city core, which will be the central venue for all runners. The marathon itself, and further the 4.000 athletes, several DJs andpresenter, a huge video wall and many booths and stands are part of this big spectacle.

Now, she can be glad about both the winner bonus and the opportunity to design the event shirt for the 9th Stadtwerke Lübeck Marathon.
