Preparation for Almaty Marathon goes according to plan
The Organizing Committee of the Almaty Marathon carefully tracks information as the new virus spreads across the world. Nevertheless, preparation for the main running event goes as planned.
From March 13 2020 Kazakhstan government imposes ban on public events over the coronavirus, unfortunately we are forced to cancel the Almaty Marathon.
Now our lives and health are most valuable and important things. We have to take care of ourselves and our family.
We follow the progress of the situation over the pandemic. Most of the international marathons have already been cancelled or postponed as Tokyo, Rome and Seoul. We believed that the situation would get better to and we would welcome participants from all over the world at our sports event.
We have already done much in preparation for the marathon, we have recruited volunteers, contacted health professionals who usually help us in conducting the safe competition.
However, there are things happened that we cannot change. We kindly ask for your patience and understanding.
On Tuesday, March 17 2020 we will provide more information about our next steps and unveil the registration fee refunding procedure and much more.
You can watch our live broadcast in Russian from the very event on our Instagram. Right afterwards we will post a report on our social media pages and webpage.
Please follow the information on our social network accounts and at the Almaty Marathon webpage.
We wish you and your loved ones strong health! Take care of yourself and do sports!
