The opening events of the 43rd Tartu Maraton: the Open Track, the 3rd Tartu Team Relay and the Tervis Pluss 13th Tartu Maraton Ladies’ Race will take place on this Sunday, February 9th in Alutaguse.
Lack of snow limits the organization of the events in the traditional Otepää-Elva track. Another alternative plan was to take all the races to a frozen lake Vortsjärv, but by now, the heavy winds have brushed off most of the snow from the ice and thus, this plan was also dropped.
The exact program and the length of the distances will be published tomorrow, on February 4th.
The decision if the 43rd Tartu Maraton main race takes place will be made next Monday, February 10th.
Yesterday, our course planners drove in the Otepää-Elva track's fnish
area and on the lake Vortsjärv. As seen from the video, at least this
week it is not possible to organize skiing events on these tracks.
