In Russia today there are a lot of sports people who support a healthy lifestyle, and from year to year we see that their number is growing. This year we decided to coincide with the beginning of a large-scale holiday, important for all runners – International Running Day, – commented Ksenia Shoigu, head of the Zabeg Half Marathon Organizing Committee.

So, in 2017 and 2018 it was Kazan, in 2019 – Vladivostok, in 2020 and 2022 – Nizhny Novgorod, in 2021 – St. Petersburg. The running capital is determined according to three criteria: the average mileage of all participants, the percentage ratio of the participants of the “Zabeg.RF” to the total population of the city, the average running speed of the participants. The winning city receives a Challenge Cup engraved with the winners of previous years from 2017.

For those who will not be able to start on June 4, the organizers have prepared an online race format.
