Together with Deutsche Post, the organizers have developed a virtual running alternative for this year's anniversary edition. Between October 2 and 11, athletes from all over Germany will have the opportunity to compete with thousands of other athletes in an individual run using a free Deutsche Post Marathon tracking app. Each time they run will be included in a corresponding results list. Where the run is taken is not relevant. Runners can start right outside their front door and use the Deutsche Post Marathon Bonn App to accurately record their time at the chosen distance. Via the app, which will be activated in a few weeks and is free of charge, all participants can record their running experience with a personal photo or video and share it with the running community. For each finisher of the virtual run, Deutsche Post will also donate two euros to the Bonn sports club. Over the past six years, the Deutsche Post Marathon Bonn has already raised more than 210,000 euros in donations for Bonn's sports landscape.
All participants registered for the Deutsche Post Marathon Bonn so far will receive the original medal and participant shirt of the 20th Deutsche Post Marathon. For this purpose, a stand will be set up on the Münsterplatz in Bonn from 2 to 4 October, where the shirts and medals will be handed out. Of course in consideration of the current Corona regulations. The paid entry fees for the regular Deutsche Post Marathon Bonn will be returned to the participants except for a processing fee of 10 Euro, which includes the medal, the shirt and the app.
