On June 14, 2020 Lviv will host the international half marathon 5th Molokiya Lviv Half Marathon. This year, the organizing team of Run Ukraine expects almost 4,500 participants. This means that this running event will once again become the largest one in Western Ukraine!
In 2020, $1 for each finisher will be donated to charity.
“The anniversary Lviv Half Marathon is an extremely important event for both Lviv residents and Run Ukraine. We grow from year to year, the number of participants increases and the quality of organization improves. We listen to the feedback of our participants and partners, and this allows us to develop and improve, – says Dmytro Chernitskyi, the General Manager of Run Ukraine. – However, our vision is not limited to quality standards. For the next five years, we will work on creation of a brand that works with interests of amateur and professional runners, community and charity organizations. We create something more than just running events.”
For the fifth year in a row, the route of the main running event of Western Ukraine will go through the central streets of the city in one lap. The start and finish of all courses is located by Lviv Opera Theatre. The event itself has the highest mark – 5 stars from the European Athletic Association. This is the highest level of certification and evaluation developed by Europe’s leading experts.
Each participant will be able to choose the course to taste: 21 km, 10 km, 4.2 km, relay or “Veteran’s Ten” (course for ATO veterans). For the first time runners participating on the mini marathon course of 4.2 will get medals. The youngest participants will be able to participate in children’s races and will also win medals.
This year’s prize fund was increased by 50% from 124,000 UAH to 185,000 UAH. Monetary prizes will be awarded to absolute winners, medalists in seven age groups among men and women on the half marathon course, athletes setting course records, as well as the teams taking the first three places in the Team 4×21 km and 3×5+6.0975 km relay.
Molokiya remains the title partner of Lviv Half Marathon.
“For five years in a row, Molokiya Lviv Half Marathon has been bringing people together united by a common goal – being healthy. People who inspire and help you believe in yourself. The Molokiya company is a large family of people who care what you eat and how you feel. We love what we do! It is important for us to support events and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. We believe that the year of 2020 will bring together even more race participants, and our friends from Run Ukraine will pleasantly surprise us and all athletes with running novelties” – said Vitalii Kovalchuk, the head of Molokiya company.
We would like to remind that this event is one of seven stages of the Ukrainian Majors Running League, which includes seven running events in six cities of Ukraine: Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Odesa, Lviv and Zaporizhzhia. For each stage in 2020, runners will accumulate points, and at the end of the season the best of them will receive awards in seven different qualifications for amateurs and professionals.
Participants who complete all seven stages of the Ukrainian Majors Running League will receive an honorary medal from Run Ukraine, the founder of the League.
