The array of Tartu Marathon's participants is as colourful as the rainbow. From ski lovers in chicken costumes and ski tourists from the southern hemisphere to the crème de la crème of the ski world together with Estonian legends.
And you can always count in the average Estonian skier – you know, the one who takes their skis for a spin once or twice a week, recharges their batteries in wintry outdoors and joins others on the third Sunday of February in experiencing the ancient joy of skiing.
Tartu Marathon's programme is versatile, offering something for every liking – children and adults, serious athletes and casual skiers alike. The festivities start a week ahead of the main events with the Relay Marathon for teams of four. Teams often consist of friends, family members or colleagues.
