Continuing our annual tradition, an iconic graphic work of Paulis Liepa will appear on the official running shirt of the Rimi Riga Marathon.

Paulis Liepa’s design is the fifteenth unique design to be designed for a marathon shirt by a Latvian artist who is well-known both in his home country and abroad. Previous designs have been made by established artists such as Kristians Brekte, Mare&Rol’s, Jānis, Šneiders, Maija Kurševa, Ieva Iltnere, Ilmārs Blumbergs, Krišs Salmanis, Andris Vītoliņš, Ritums Ivanovs, Ella Krugļanska, Raimonds Staprāns, and others.

The official marathon shirts can be purchased not only when registering for the Rimi Riga Marathon – DPD mile, 5 km, 10 km, half marathon (21.0975 km) or marathon (42.195 km) distances, but also in Sportland stores in Spice, Akropole Alfa, and Galerija Centrs.
