“Where the old meets the new”

In 2020 Tartu Maraton celebrates 60-years anniversary from the first start of the legendary ski race. Starting with 214 skiers in 1960, the tracks between Otepää and Elva have hosted all together more than 180 000 skiers over the years. Among them also thousands of foreigners, the biggest number of countries in one race is reaching up to 40.

Traditionally the classical distances in Tartu are 63 and 31 km. Also the free technique Open Track (63/31 and 16 km) as well as the team relay take place a week before.
