Tartu Maraton children’s events may take place with shorter distances

09.02.2015

On this Saturday, February 14th, the 43rd Tartu Maraton children’s events take place and due to changeable weather, the distances may be shorter than initially planned. The final decisions will be made in the second half of the week.

“At this moment, Tartu Tähtvere Sports park’s skiing conditions are good but additional snow is transported and more work with the tracks has to be done,” said Kunnar Karu, project manager of the 43rd Tartu Maraton. “Under the question is using skiing tracks in nearby Dendropark. If the weather won’t melt much, the tracks will be used, but we will make the decision on this Wednesday or Thursday.”

At the moment, the TILLUraces are planned to take place with 300 m, 500 m and 1 km long distances, MINImaraton with 1,5 km long distance.

“Regardless of the lack of natural snow and very small amount of snow making days, SA Tähtvere Puhkepark has done a remarkable job to make sure the children’s event take place,” added Karu. “All children will find a suitable distance and it surely will be a fun skiing day!”

Registration for the children’s event is open from today, February 9th until Thursday, February 12th, 17.00 (Estonian time) on Club Tartu Maraton website. On Friday, it is possible to register in the race center of the 43rd Tartu Maraton and on Saturday, on spot, before the first start of the event.

From 2015 the Tartu Maraton children’s complex event carries a new name: Tartu Maraton Mini Cube. Children can choose from six events to participate in at least four. 43rd Tartu Maraton children’s event opens the series. In 2015 series also includes: 33rd Tartu Jooksumaraton’s, 34th Tartu Rattaralli’s, 9th Tartu Rulluisumaraton’s, 18th Tartu Rattamaraton’s and 4th Tartu City Maraton’s children’s events.
