So it was unsurprising that many runners and cyclists attended to see the “blue line” being painted on the streets of Münster, as did passers-by and café visitors who were sitting outside enjoying the sunny weather and spontaneously applauded. Jürgen Sieme and Michael Brinkmann from the Münster Marathon organisation accompanied the route markers and their police escort for the 18th year.
The weather stayed good, which was fortunate as the best line can’t be painted in the rain. 60 litres of blue paint were needed to mark out the race route. When the pale blue line shines in the morning sun it may attract the attention of some to the marathon – motivation and a mental push for a successful run on 12th September. Starting places are still available.
