Over the past seven days 7998 MTB enthusiasts took part in the events of the 20th Tartu MTB Marathon.

The programme of the anniversary event kicked off on the 17th of September with the 2nd Tartu MTB Marathon Relay and the official training. 99 and 302 riders respectively participated in those events.

This year’s children’s events on the 23th of September brought 2908 children to Tartu. This is roughly 300 more than last year and very close to the record made in 2014 when 2921 children participated. It is worth mentioning that this year’s number is not yet official, which means that the record could be beated.

20th Tartu MTB Marathon culminated with yesterday’s main races where Latvians once again triumphed. A total of 4689 started on the 89, 40 and 21 km distances.

Next and also the last event this season will be the 6th Tartu City Marathon on the 7th of October.
