Estonian Running Support Foundation

One hundred years ago, on 22 August 1920, Estonian Jüri Lossmann won silver medal in marathon at the Antwerp Olympic Games with time 2:32.48,6. This was the first Olympic medal for the Republic of Estonia! Gold medal and the world top result were only 12.8 seconds away. The result achieved by Lossmann in Antwerp remained the Estonian record for 38 years and it would grant a high place at Estonian marathons even today.

 

Organisers of Estonia’s largest race Tallinna Maraton established the Estonian Running Support Foundation on the one hundredth anniversary of the first Olympic medal victory of the Republic of Estonia. The aim of the charity foundation is to ensure the sustainability of running in Estonia by supporting young talents and aspiring athletes, motivating the coaches and preserving traditional races. With this new initiation, the founders want running to bring glory to tiny Estonia also in the next one hundred years.
