OFFICIAL: 43rd Tartu Maraton will take place as planned

09.02.2015

Organizers of the 43rd Tartu Maraton gathered today to make an official decision concerning this years’ Tartu Maraton. Considering current track conditions and weather forecast for the week ahead the decision was unanimous that the 43rd Tartu Maraton will take place on the planned track and distance.

„Already before todays’ meeting it was clear that this year we don’t have to worry about cancelling Tartu Maraton. We rather had to decide whether we can finish in Elva or shorten the distance and finish in Palu,“ said Tartu Maraton race director Indrek Kelk.

„Yesterdays’ Tartu Maraton Open Track and 4th Tartu Relay Marathon proved that the track conditions are good and even the last 16km from Palu to Elva was a lot better than few days ago. We have enough snow for a top quality Tartu Maraton now and the race will be in full distance“.

Weather forecast for the weak ahead predicts sunny weather where the temperatures can reach above zero some days but no rain. This means that there should be no danger for the track.

63km distance of the 43rd Tartu Maratons will start at 9.00 on the 15th of February in Otepää. Shorter 31km distance will start from Arula at 12.30.

On the 14th of February Tartu Maraton childrens’ events will take place in Tartu Tähtvere Sports Park.
