It’s one of the highlights during the running festival in Lübeck. More than 1200 runners take part at the relay across Lübeck downtown every year. However, due to the new changing area at Sandstraße this year’s relay may exceed this number. You have still the chance to save your own bib number…
Experienced people know the eye-catching batons of the different teams, the “normal” one almost have had its day. Nowadays flags, ring binders, sun flowers, stethoscopes or violin blows are used as a reference to the own team. The running clothes are colorful as well. “At Sandstraße there is enough place for almost 200 teams. A small stage, moderation and special services will ensure good vibes and feelings”, promises Klaus Ziele (chief-organizator, Lübecker Marathon e.V.)
On 1st October the documents will be handed to the teams. For all the captains who cannot keep this appointment, the original distribution of all bib numbers will be on 16th and 17th October during the “marathon fair” at the Haerder-Center.
Nevertheless, one date needs to be kept in mind: Until 16th September each relay is able to choose an own, individual team name on the bib number (just like on the picture). Up to 13 signs are possible. “We are not able to implement everything, but during the last years we had a lot of funny team names”, tells Michael Beez (chef of the timekeeping team, PRO EVENT).
