The Tallinn Marathon has won a sure place in the competition calendar of runners and has become an attractive destination for running tourists looking for new experiences. About 20 000 running enthusiasts from 56 different countries participated in the 2017 event.
As a tradition, the marathon will take place in every second Sunday of September, this year 9thof September, and the participants will have a choice to run either a marathon or half-marathon. 10 km and Mesikäpp Children races will take place a day eariler, on Saturday 9th of September. All walkers and Nordic walkers are also welcome to attend the 10 km race. Make sure to attend or come support We Run Tallinn for youth, which will take place a Friday evening, 7thof September.
Similarly to most well-known international running events, the route of the Tallinn Marathon will run in city centre, passing through both the Old Town and the modern centre and by several well-known sights. The route conforms to international standards and is relatively fast; the weather of the region in September should also be favourable to running. This attracts fast runners from countries with strong running traditions and allows hobby runners to attempt breaking their own records as well. But the main benefit is the joy of moving together with thousands of great runners.
We wish you pleasant running experiences in the capital of Estonia!
