WELCOME TO ESTONIA’S BIGGEST RUNNING PARTY!

 

Run the Tallinna Maraton on the Republic of Estonia’s 100th birthday! In 2018, Republic of Estonia is celebrating its 100th year of independence - come and let's celebrate together! Choose your distance from 42km, 21km, 10km or 5km and run along one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, the UNESCO declared Old Town of Tallinn. In 2017, over 18 000 running enthusiasts from 56 different countries participated, now in 2018 it is time to have the Century's greatest run for Estonia!

 

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 and flat; the weather of the region in September is also favourable to running with 10-15C.

This attracts fast runners from different countries and also hobby runners to attempt breaking their own records! But the main benefit is the joy of moving together with thousands of great runners.

 

Let's celebrate Estonia's significant birthday in a dignified manner at Tallinna Maraton!

See you in 2018, 7-9 September!
