One of the biggest ski marathons in the Worldloppet calendar 44th Tartu Maraton in Estonia is just one month away from today. Tartu Maraton takes place on the 21st of February. Organizers are expecting more snow for quality course.

„The course is okey and today can be skied with an older ski in free and classic technique,“ said chief of course Assar Kütt today. „We have approximately 10-15cm of snow on the whole 63km track and everyone are welcome to train on the course. But we still need more snow for the course to withstand large masses of skiers“.

„If Tartu Maraton should take place this weekend, the race would not be cancelled,“ said race director Indrek Kelk. „But sure we need more snow to produce a quality competition“.

At the moment a total of 4196 participants have registered for the 44th Tartu Maraton. Organizers are expecting at least antother 1000-2000 to add for the starting list.

„Snow conditions in Estonia are actually pretty good at the moment and this is very important for us. This will motivate people to practise more and give them hope that Tartu Maraton will take place with it’s usual high quality standard,“ said race director Indrek Kelk.

44. Tartu Maraton takes place on the 21st of February. Cheaper registration fee is available until the 31st of January. Tartu Maraton is a classic race and also belongs to the FIS Worldoppet CUP.
