Macedonia Square, Skopje, Macedonia (FYROM)
Every run kilometer of the race, passing through each part of the city and each neighborhood is a testimony of Skopje’s creation and growth. It all ends with a symbolic and victorious entry through the triumphal arch “Gate Macedonia”.
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.
The Wizz Air Skopje Marathon became one of the biggest sporting events in Republic of Macedonia in 2018 as more than 10.000 runners from more than 58 countries attended. The event draws international athletes and the mission of the race organizer is to develop healthier habits amongst the youth in Macedonia. The promoter in 2018 was Paula Radcliffe, actual women’s record holder in marathon.
