International half marathon Tavria V Odesa Half Marathon, organized by Run Ukraine with the support of Tavria V, is a major international sports festival. The event, which will be held for the fifth time on September 13, 2020, has become one of the largest regional events.
Next year Run Ukraine, the organizing company, expects 4000 runners from different cities of Ukraine and other countries. $1 for each finisher of Odesa Half Marathon will be donated to charity.
The route of the main running event of Odesa will go through the central streets of the city in one lap. The start and finish of all courses will be located by the Opera House. Each finisher will receive medals with a new design from the event organizers. For the first time there will be medals awarded to the finishers of the mini marathon course of 4.2 km. The event is traditionally held with the support of Odesa City Council.
“A running festival on the Black Sea – this is what Tavria V Odesa Half Marathon really is. Each year, the number of participants increases, their emotions get more intense. People are ready to run in Odesa Half Marathon again and again – and we are doing our best to make them want to return to Odesa and run here. We create something more than just running events. Yes, we experiment with something, we face some criticism, but this is the only way to understand what is the best way and where we should go next,” – says Dmytro Chernitskyi, the General Manager of Run Ukraine.
Each participant will be able to choose a course to taste: 21 km, 10 km, 4.2 km, relay or “Veteran’s Ten” (course for ATO veterans). The youngest participants will be able to participate in children’s races and will also win medals.
This year the prize fund has been increased by 50% and will amount to 185,200 UAH. There will be awards for absolute winners among men and women on the course of 21.0975 km. The prize fund will be distributed between the first five finishers among men and women in absolute championship, the first three places in seven age groups among men and women, and medalists of team and relay races.
We would like to remind that the 5th Tavria V Odesa Half Marathon is one of seven stages of the Ukrainian Majors Running League, which includes races in six cities of Ukraine: Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Odesa, Lviv and Zaporizhzhia. For each stage in 2020, runners will accumulate points, and at the end of the season the best of them will receive awards in seven different qualifications for amateurs and professionals.
Participants who complete all races of the League in 2020 will receive a special medal of the finisher of the Ukrainian Majors Running League.
