Tallinn Marathon Events receive Bronze Label

World Athletics has recognised Tallinn Marathon as a Bronze Label race. This is the first time a sports event held in Estonia is awarded such a high international organisational standard.

Tallinn Marathon Events receive Bronze Label

This year, 21,494 runners from 65 countries in total took part in the international sports event with the highest participation rate in Estonia. Next year, the public’s interest will likely be even greater, because in 2020, both the marathon and half marathon of Tallinn Marathon will be World Athletics Bronze Level races. For the first time ever, the organisers have set limits for participant numbers at different distances to ensure better planning for the major event. In 2020, the largest sports event in Estonia will allow four thousand participants on the marathon course, five thousand on the half marathon course and twelve thousand on the 10 km racetrack. Registration is already open at
The three-day event of 2020 involving the best athletes and thousands of enthusiasts starts on Friday, 11 September with the 5 km Nike Youth Race, continues on Saturday, 12 September with the half marathon (21.1 km) and 10 km, the grand final is on Sunday, 13 September with the marathon (42.2 km) and kids’ races. 

Other World Athletics Bronze Label marathons include the Venice, Florence, Geneva, Copenhagen, Madrid, Krakow, Barcelona, Sao Paolo, Porto, Bucharest and Sofia marathons.

Tallinn Marathon got the chance to apply for certification as a World Athletics label race thanks to the contributions of the Ministry of Culture, City of Tallinn, Estonian Athletic Association and many supporters.
