Join Wizz Air Skopje Marathon
Wizz Air Skopje Marathon is the most famous running event held in May in Skopje. The first marathon race in Skopje was organized in 1997 but only lasted for that year. After a break of nine years, in 2007, the event was revived with a half marathon-only, and then fully restored in 2008, when three races were run: marathon, half marathon, and a 5K humanitarian race.
The Skopje Marathon is the member of AIMS and is attracting more and more runners. In 2014 promoter of Skopje Marathon was Wilson Kipsang from Kenya, at that time world record holder in the marathon. In 2017 our promoter was triplets Luik from Estonia. In 2018 our promoter was Paula Radcliffe, she held the Women’s World Record time of 2:15:25 for the marathon since 2003.
In 2020 marathon race will be a qualifying race for Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Championships in 2021.
We suggest you spend a few extra days in Skopje, to discover the amazing nature surrounding the city, for example, “lake Matka”, and the tourist attractions, restaurants, and bars. The friendly Skopje Marathon will be a memory of a lifetime.
The Wizz Air Skopje Marathon begins from in front of the famous Macedonia Square, on Dimitrya Chupovski. It heads along old Stone Bridge and onto Boulevard Ilinden. The route then turns to the left and heads towards Mitropolit Teodosij Gologanov, where it heads back towards the start-finish line. Marathon-runners, however, go past the start-finish line and head towards Boulevard Jane Sandanski, before turning around and heading to the start-finish line to complete one lap of the circuit. The entire race-circuit is about 21.1km, which means that athletes need to take two-laps of the circuit to complete the marathon course.
