Estonia’s biggest running event SEB Tallinn Marathon to take place in a month
SEB Tallinn Marathon that is to take place in exactly one month from today is gaining popularity among foreigners next to Estonian sports fans. While last year, SEB Tallinn Marathon hosted runners from a total of 41 different countries, participants from 45 nations have registered for this years’ race already.
As of today, the number of registered participants and SEB Tallinn Marathon registration dynamics in general allow for an estimated new and significant participation record for both the full marathon as well as the half marathon.
In the course of fifteen years, SEB Tallinn Marathon has emerged as the region’s largest public sports event and the most well-known marathon. For all race distances, the organizers are prepared to host at least as many participants this year as in 2013 when 20,562 recreational athletes took part in the largest public sports event ever in Estonia.
Within the framework of SEB Tallinn Marathon that traditionally takes place on the second weekend in September, participants can choose between the following race distances: marathon (42.195 km), half marathon (21.1 km), 10-kilometer running or walking (incl. Nordic walking), 4-kilometer Nike Youth Run, and Mesikäpp Kids Races.
Discounted registration for different distances at SEB Tallinn Marathon is open until the end of August at www.jooks.ee. Go to the same web site to pre-register for Mesikäpp Kids Races. Nike Youth Run registration is open until September 6.
