The organizers of the Moscow Marathon, which will start at Luzhniki Sport Complex on September 20, increased the number of places for a marathon of 42.2 kilometers. The limit of 7000 participants has been already exhausted, so additional registration launched at the marathon’s site – now another thousand runners will be able to take part in the race.
The Moscow Marathon is the most mass marathon in Russia by number of participants at a distance of 42,2 km. Last year more than 4000 people ran the race. About 5000 runners took part in the race on 10 km. In total, last year’s marathon collected more than 12 thousand runners and in the 2015th organizers hope to attract twice more people.
Additional vacancies for runners have appeared by reducing the quota for the 10-kilometer race – 12 000 people will take part in it, instead of 13 000 planned before.
The price of the registration for the Moscow Marathon from Junу 1 to September 6 will be 1800 rubles.
