Smiles, enthusiastic exclamations, happiness and joy in the eyes of runners are the companions of today's event. The Minsk Half Marathon has long been entrenched in the life of running enthusiasts and one of the September Sundays is always marked as the red day of the calendar! Two-year training, what each participant has trained for a long time of training - was demonstrated today. And we want to share with you the results of those who managed to climb the podium on this day!
At 9:00, the Minister of Sports and Tourism Sergey Kovalchuk launched two distances of our event - 10.55 and 21.1km, and the chairman of the Minsk City Executive Committee Evgeny Kukharev sent the participants of the 5.5km race to the distance. This year we started with restrictions on the number of runners - 3,000 people at longer distances, because the pandemic has made significant adjustments to the life of everyone living on planet Earth. 4,000 people competed for the awards at the shortest distance - 5.5 km, and they started at 11:45.
It is worth noting that traditionally BMW cars, which are provided by the official auto partner of the event, Autoidea LLC, drive our athletes.
It's time to introduce you to the results at each of the distances.
