Get your running shoes on, Riga Marathon 2022 is coming to town!
Riga is a great city to run in. Green open spaces, parks, footpaths and a city that can easily be cleared of traffic to make way for a marathon route of varying lengths. The routes will pass by many of the top sights of Riga, including parks and green spaces, cross over bridges, pass along major boulevards and make use of the city of Riga as an entertaining and interesting route for your choice of marathon lengths. Sure the locals may be grumpy that they cannot reach their local supermarket or be able to drive out of their yards but it is for one day only and its a positive thing right?
