Last Sunday, 6 August, on a terrible heat, that it was difficult to move, not just to run, the fifth edition of Sunday Long Run was held as part of preparation for the Chisinau International Marathon.
Please be reminded that on October 1, 2017 Chisinau will host a mass sporting event that has already become a tradition for all of us. Chisinau Marathon will take place in the heart of the capital, on the main thoroughfare – Stefan cel Mare boulevard! It is for the sake of Chisinau Marathon that the boulevard will be closed for traffic on this day, being provided exclusively for athletes!
On Sunday, quite a number of participants, no fewer than 65 people, in spite of the 40 degrees (!) heat outside, gathered in the Botanical Garden. There they had a full training session under the supervision of the coach, Vitalie Gheorghita. After a short warm-up, the participants started for the race. Each of the runners had an individual distance from 5 to 20 km, depending on the selected distance for the marathon!
Please be reminded that Chisinau Marathon features several distances: 42 km 195 m, 21 km 0975 m, 10 km, 5 km, Fun Run (1.5 km).
Accordingly, during the training, each of the athletes was able to test his/her strength at a selected distance, to correct the current technique under the supervision of an experienced coach, and choose the optimal tactics for the competition. Thus, on Sunday there was organized already the fifth training, and for the fifth time the participants have been waiting for stimulating gifts, offered by the sponsor of the event, Puma brand.
Please be reminded that registration for Chisinau International Marathon is now open at marathon.md. Everyone eager to participate in 42 km, 21 km, 10 km, and 5 km races should register and pay entry tax online. Limited participation!
