Moscow Marathons in 2018

Epic races in the heart of Moscow!

Some people run to get fit. Some people set a big goal and pull through the hard training to achieve it. Others just love running and travelling at the same time! That’s why every year dozens of epic marathons are organised across Europe. A considerable number will take place in Moscow this year, so this is your perfect chance to add a new city to your travel list and set a personal record in 2018!

The Absolute Moscow Marathon

The biggest race in the Russian capital will take place on September 23rd. It offers a terrific route over the scenic historical center, along all the major attractions: the Kremlin, the Seven Sisters Skyscrapers, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and even Moscow City business centers. When you’re picking up your registration packet, you will be able to attend  the Moscow Marathon Expo with more than 60 sport brands. The distance choices are 42.2 km and 10 km. More than 30 000 participants are expected.

The Night Run

The famous 10 km race under the city lights was held on July 28th, after the sunset. The route lead across the very city center: through the Red Square, along the Kremlin walls, near the Zaryadye Park and by the embankments of the Moscow River – Moskvoretskaya, Kremlevskaya and Presnenskaya. The views throughout the run were fantastic!

The #RunForTheChildren Half Marathon

Run and make a difference! Expecting to gather 10 000 participants, this charity race sets the target to put up money for the development of a global database of children under government protection. That will make it easier  for their future parents to find them! “We don’t want to buy them new toys or clothes. We want to help them find a new family,” – the organisers say. The race will be held on September 15th, in the Gorky Park.
