THE COURSE

RIGAMARATHON_maps_3.jpgThe course lies in the very centre of Riga City and all runners can enjoy the charm of the largest city in the Baltic States. The course allows all visitors to run on both sides of the Daugava River, the largest river in Latvia and with the help of Vanšu Bridge the participants can enjoy some of the most beautiful spots in Riga – the Art Nouveau district, the amazing panorama of Old Riga and Pārdaugava, as well as the paved streets of the Medieval Hanseatic Old Town. Riga is rather flat without significant hills or ascents; therefore the only major challenge is crossing the Vanšu Bridge. All courses are traffic-free.
