23rd Nordea Riga marathon is just 2 days away – on Sunday, 19th of May.
Organized by Riga City council, this event takes place since 1991 and last year it attracted more than 18000 runners. Well, 18 thousand sure is a lot, but just to be honest, not all of them were running the marathon distance, which is more than 42 km. For those who are not yet ready to run the whole distance, there is the half-marathon, 10km and 5km runs.
All of the routes will cross Daugava river and the longer ones will lead you through the Quiet Center with some nice Art Nouveau architecture and of course, the streets will be closed for cars, so even if you’re not running, you sure can enjoy Riga’s streets without those metal boxes.
So, if you’re in Riga this weekend, make the most of your time here and join the marathon or some of many other activities!
