Today, on October 4th, the 3rd Tartu City Marathon’s children’s races were held with a record number of participants - 2637.

“To be honest, we were extremely positively surprised there were so many participants,” said Indrek Kelk, the race director of the Tartu City Marathon. “We were very happy to see so many children running in the heart of the Tartu city.”

“When we can’t name the Tartu City Run and Tartu City Marathon in the top three biggest running races in Estonia, we can definitely say that Tarty City Marathon’s children’s races and Tartu Jooksumaraton’s children’s races held in May are the biggest children’s races in Estonia and Baltics,” added Kelk.

Tartu City Marathon’s children’s races were held for the 3rd year and last year, there were 2144 participants. Today, there were about 500 children more, 1904 of them participated in TILLUraces (up to 7 years old) and 733 in MINImarathon (8 years and older).

Today also the main races of the 3rd Tartu City Marathon (42,2 km and 21,1km) and Tarty City Run (10 km running and Nordic Walking) were held.
