Thousands of runners are invited to race on September 13th in Vilnius choosing from 6 different lengths for every experience. In addition, the marathon course is now one lap, so participants will not have to repeat the route.

Trees in the Valakampiai and Vingis park and historical buildings in the city center will make the marathon run in the shade for more than 20k. It opens great possibilities for a fast and picturesque race.
