The best of 20 years of the Volksbank-Münster-Marathon interprets the motto of the anniversary run of the Volksbank-Münster-Marathon: Run in Münster!

Artists and groups of artists who have inspired our runners and spectators the most are invited to give the anniversary marathon a very special touch.

The supporting program again has a very special meaning at the marathon. Large mythical creatures as stilt-walkers move through the city, several bands and drum groups provide the right sound, acrobats, dancers and very special artists act on all stages from the city center, via Nienberge, Gievenbeck, Roxel to the finish. A cultural event that is second to none.

More than 300 actors are called upon to heat up the spectators in order to provide the runners with the best possible mental support. The highlights include many cheerleader groups who have been training for this date for weeks. The Starlets Cheerleader from Bochum as well as Antje Pode, who inspires the spectators with suitcase acrobatics, offer a great performance on the big finish stage.

The Afro-Cuban drum group TAKA TUN is at the extreme end of the marathon at the corner of Stodtbrodtweg and Twerenfeldweg between Nienberge and Roxel. The Himmelreichallee will be a unique party mile until the finish line. It starts with Checker Julian from the TV station KiKa and sergeant Kerkhoff at Stadtwerke Kids Point. This is followed by the new South America Mile, which exudes a lot of South American flair in bright colors. Including: the drum group Sambanda Girassol, the dance group Viva Brasil in South American clothes and a close act with the Blue Birds on stilts.

This is followed by the Schmitz Cargobull Power Point with a varied program featuring the impressive Luneatic Insects on stilts, the cheerleaders “Diamonds Elite” and a great band. Just a few meters further on, the runners pass the AWM Power Point at the Aegidiimarkt, where the drum group Groove Onkels creates a good atmosphere and the Compagnie with balls inspire with artistic interludes on man-high balls of two meters.

Then comes the big finish, where the participants are welcomed by the moderators Michael Brinkmann and Jana Gügercin, an employee of the Volksbank Münsterland Nord.
