Limit on the number of participants

The tradition of Kids’ Day started in 2013 as a very small activity for parents with children. During these years, the popularity of Kids’ Day has grown significantly, and it is expected that the popularity of the live running event will only grow, so participants are encouraged to register early, as the number of participants is limited to 8000.
