Riga's annual marathon run has become an increasingly popular sports event, drawing thousands of participants from numerous countries. Runners of all ages course past some of Riga's most beautiful tourist spots, filling the atmosphere along the 42-kilometre course with a thrilling sense of exhilaration.
The majority of the race's participants actually choose to run much shorter distances - either the mini marathon (5 km), the half marathon (21 km), or the relay race (with four participants per team).
The marathon traditionally starts off with the Unity Kilometre (Vienotības kilometrs), a one-kilometre event for people with physical disabilities. This thrilling sports venue has taken place every year on the third Sunday in May since 1991.Share it:
