The running coupling is introduced into the equation for the odderon via the bootstrap relation. It is shown that the previously found odderon state with a maximal intercept, which is constructed from an antisymmetric pomeron wave function, continues to exist in the running coupling case. Its intercept is found to remain equal to unity independent of the behaviour assumed for the running coupling at low momenta.
