The organizer of the All-Russian half marathon “ZaBeg.RF” Kirill Vorobyov said on that China quickly agreed to organize the start under the auspices of the organization, and also noted that in 2024 the number of participants in the “One Run” The race more than doubled the times compared to last year.

Russia’s main half marathon with synchronized start, “ZaBeg.RF”, will take place on May 19 in all regions of the country, as well as in 15 other countries under the name “One Run”.

“I remember how we were sitting in the office and thinking about how we could do all this, what the format would be. We thought, “Let’s start the summer sports season off with a bang.” » The idea came to organize a half-marathon. Then, within 3-4 months, we gathered the participants and made everything happen. We realized that the race had great potential, that the country was very active and that there would be more and more participants.

We thank the organizers who took up our initiative in other countries. I remember when I contacted the Chinese Athletics Federation last year, my colleagues immediately picked up the idea. China had perhaps the quickest organization: the event took place in a month. Then there were four thousand people, today nine thousand have started. I don’t know what will happen there in 2-3 years, we are already afraid of this figure.

Organizing such a race is very difficult, but each of these countries has an established team that organizes such events every year,” Vorobiev said on .
