Kazan national semi-marathon
The participants could choose from 3, 10 or 21,1 km distance. Overall this event gathered more than 3 000 runners.
The word «national» in the name of the semi-marathon is no accident. It doesn’t only underline the scale of the event, but also gives an opportunity to learn more about the capital of Tatarstan and its culture. A kick off was near the «Ak Bars Arena» stadium. The participants ran through the «Millenium» bridge, Kremlin embankment, Kremlin transport dam and Sibgat Hakim street. They could see the Kazan Kremlin, the Palace of Farmers, the apartments in the style of XVIII century palaces, «Kazan» Family Center and a scenic view to the both of Kazanka river’s embankments.
This year for people from other cities and countries who wanted to participate but couldn’t travel because of the epidemiological situation there was an opportunity to complete the semi-marathon online. To apply a result a participant could just send a selfie from the run and a screenshot from his/her tracker. Thus people from Baku, London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Minsk and various Russian cities completed one of the distances on their streets wearing tubeteikas.
