BREST, 9 August (BelTA) – Brest Half Marathon will take place on 4 September, BelTA learned from head of the Brest sports and tourism department Olesya Okrug.
This sports event will take place in Brest for the fourth time. The half marathon is open to both professional and amateur runners and will include 21km, 10.5km, 5km and children's races.
The Half Marathon route will start from the main entrance to the Brest Hero Fortress to run along Zubacheva and Gogolya Streets, Beresteiskoye highway, Masherova Prospekt, Lenina Street and the new embankment.
“Brest Half Marathon is becoming a recognizable event. People have longed for mass sporting events. The main problem was that we could not decide on the month and route. We tried various options and held the half marathon in summer and in autumn. We are not going to change the route, we have already found it. I think we will finally decide on the date,” said Olesya Okrug. She added that the competition in Brest can become a rehearsal for Minsk Half Marathon.
The organizers will equip photo and entertainment areas and food courts. Each participant of the half marathon will get a medal.
