This year the organizers decided to postpone the start from 11:00 to 9:00. Remembering about the hardest weather conditions in 2018 (+32 and humidity over 90%), the organizing committee considered two options: to start on Saturday evening, July 13 or on the morning of the 14th at 9:00. After weighing all the pros and cons, they decided for the first time in the history of the Demino marathons to start at 9:00 on Sunday.
And it was not the only successful decision of the organizers. The new configuration of the half-marathon, consisting of two 10,5 km laps, caused only positive emotions for everyone who started at the distance of 21 km, and additional loops on the first lap made the participants do their best for 7 km.
With ideal weather conditions, at the start “X. Traditional Demino cross-country running halfmarathon 2019” brought together representatives from 20 regions of Russia and one representative from Latvia.
In the main race for men, intrigue kept to the middle of the distance, after which Maxim Cherezov pushed up the pace and began to break away from his pursuers. At the finish, his advantage over second-place Emelyanov Leonid was a little more than a minute, and Timofey Merkulov (Yaroslavl Region) closed the top three winners.
The program of “X. Traditional Demino cross-country running halfmarathon 2019" closed with the awards ceremony and prize drawing from constant partners and sponsors of Demino marathons: SALOMON, SUUNTO and POWERUP companies.
The traditional Demino cross-country running halfmarathon entered the new “Russialoppet Summer Cup”, consisting of six events, and also became the 1st stage of “Demino marathons Supercup Powerup 2019/2020”.
The next (second) stage of “Demino marathons Supercup Powerup 2019/2020” - October 12, 2019 “II. Demino running trail ". Distance 21 km.
