According to the preliminary data, a total of 2782 children ran in the children’s events of the 7th Tartu City Marathon on Saturday, 6th of October – 1879 in the TILLUrace’s 450 meters distance and 903 in the 900 meters distance of the MINImarathon.

Although the weather was a little bit rainy, it did not scare the children off. They ran with smiling faces and finished on a red carpet to get the medallion. Each child got also a goodies bag with Balbiino’s ice cream, Saare’s glazed curd bar and Limpa’s lemonade.

The 7th Tartu City Marathon’s children’s races were the final stage of the Tartu Marathon Mini Cube children’s sport series. All children who participated in at least four events out of six this year are welcome to participate in a season ending party on October 13th.

Together with the children’s races, the main distances of 42, 21 and 10 km were run today.
