Russia Marathon 2019 events are not for the faint of heart! Most held in the cold and ice, seasoned athletes from around the globe come to show what fierce competitors they really are.
For the newbie looking for something a little tamer, the Kazan Marathon is an excellent choice. Held in the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, the history of the city dates back thousands of years, and it shows in the amazing old-world architecture. Participants get views of the shores of the Volga River, and are greeted by the local measly million people who live there. Not a small town or race; it is one to put on your bucket list.
If you are ready to dig in and challenge ice and snow, then the Baikal Ice Marathon is for you .Lake Baikal is one of the oldest geographical features in the world. Just across the racecourse are soaring mountain ranges and the sun reflecting off of the blue sheet of ice is breathtaking, if not blinding. There is no better challenge to do just to say "I did it!".
And if you've always wanted to visit Moscow, the Moscow Marathon is a must. An international favorite, it replaced the Moscow International Peace Marathon, which ran for over thirty years strong.
