According to the preliminary data, 1278 runners enjoyed the entertaining running event of Friday Night Run at the city center of Tartu.
The event got its start at 20 o'clock at the Tartu Town Hall Square with Estonian rapper Arop's concert, who with his energetic songs warmed the runners up. One hour later Arop also gave a start to the race.
Participants got to run the 4-kilometer long route at the streets of downtown Tartu.
