Useful info for virtual participants

Before participating in the race, read the information below.

In addition to the main race, there will be a virtual race on 10th to 27th of september according to separate regulations. Registration to the virtual race will not give the right to participate on the main race and vice versa. A participant can take part in one distance either on the main race or the virtual one, but not both.

Virtual race is a remote event. 23. Tartu Rattamaraton virtual race will take place from September 10th until September 27th 2020. Choose your day of preference in this time period and participate in the race at your own location!

NB! In everyday activities and also when participating in the virtual race, please adhere to the restrictions and directions of your local government and health authorities!

The virtual race has three distances:  89 km, 40 km and 21 km.

  • Choose a suitable and safe track for your ride.
  • Regular traffic is not closed! Follow all traffic regulations and ride safely!
  • Complete the distance in one go. Use your own device (sport watch, smartphone) with appropriate software to keep a record of your race. 
  • The virtual race is not a competition. Choose a comfortable speed.
