The new course for 2021 will start in the heart of Riga by the Freedom Monument. After making a loop around the monument the course will take all runners across the river Daugava by crossing Vanšu bridge and providing a panoramic view of Old Riga's buildings and church towers. All runners complete the course and finish next to the river and Old Riga.
The course elevation is minimal as Riga is mostly flat. For the Family Run the only section with some slight elevation is on the Vanšu bridge.
"Happy Babies", 200 m and 400 m races
As each year, also this August kids will be able to run around and play on three tracks: Happy Babbies, 200 m and 400 m.
When registering for kids’ races, the track choice will be available after indicating the child’s age. Just keep in mind – only one medal per participant with the bib number to make sure all kids get their very special medal of the day.
Children up to the age of 12 are invited to take part, so only children born after 11.10.2008 can register. Don’t worry if your child is over 12 - there is no age limit for enjoying running with Mums, Dads and the rest of the family in our Family Run!
