The traditional Siberian International Marathon will be held in an unusual format this year, which means that men will be able to compete in their skills with women, Channel 12 reports.
The organizers believe that such innovations will help improve the competition. The distance for women will start 17 minutes 19 seconds earlier than for men, to see if they can catch up with the female runners. The longest distance will be 3 laps. Half marathons will run 14 and 7 kilometres, and a distance of 10 kilometres means a circle. It is also noted that a non-competitive race with a distance of 3 kilometres will be held in a virtual format.
