For the first time in history, the Tartu Maraton’s organizers can say it out loud three weeks before the event: Estonia’s biggest skiing marathon will take place!

As of now the snow conditions on the track are excellent. The whole 63 km course has at least 30 cm of snow on it.

„The weather forecasts show that there are no drastic changes expected, which means that the original 63 km course will most probably be skiable also in three weeks’ time. But if by any chance the conditions will completely change, which is highly unlikely, then we still have Tehvandi’s 6,5 km loop covered with artificial snow, the 2017 Tartu Maraton’s option,“ Race Director Indrek Kelk said.

This year the organizers are prepared to welcome a maximum of 5000 skiers to the main distances (63 and 31 km). As of today, nearly 4000 people are on the starting list, which means that there are only about 1000 bib numbers left. Looking at the good pace of registration, it’s only a matter of time when all 5000 spots are filled. So the organizers strongly recommend not to leave the registration to the last minute.

Start for the 46th Tartu Maraton will be given on the 17th of February. Worshiping the golden times, the marathon will also have a brand new discipline, Tartu Maraton Vintage, which will start with the main distances.

A week before, on the 10th of February, 7th Tartu Relay Marathon and Open Track races (63, 31 and 16 km) take place.
