Club Tartu Maraton events’

PARTICIPATION RECORDS & THE RECOGNITION OF REGULAR PARTICIPANTS

The events organised by Club Tartu Maraton are the Tartu Maraton, the Tartu Jooksumaraton, the Tartu Rattaralli, the Tartu Rulluisumaraton, the Tartu Rattamaraton, and the Tartu Linnamaraton. Those events are bound together into one competition series – Tartu Maraton Cube.

The participants’ results and their participation records have been entered into the database in the following manner:

  • The Tartu Maraton does not have finish protocols from 1960–1979, and thus it is not reflected in the participation records;
  • Results from 1980–1984 – based upon the participants’ request;
  • Results from 1985–1991 – based upon the finish protocols without a finish time and place;
  • Results from 1992–1995 – based upon the finish protocols with a place, but without a finish time;
  • Results since 1996 – based upon the electronic database of Club Tartu Maraton;
  • The participation records of the Tartu Jooksumaraton also include the results of the Tartu Sügisjooks from 1983–1999;
  • Records on the participation in the Tartu Linnamaraton and the restored Tartu Sügisjooks are kept from 2012;
  • Completing the main or short distance of an event shall be regarded as a single participation;
  • A participant that has completed a distance in every single event during the season shall be regarded as a participant of the Tartu Maraton Cube.
