The traditional Kyiv half-marathon-2017 took place in Ukrainian capital. 9000 people from 48 countries of different ages took part in this event: from schoolchildren to pensioners. This is reported by Channel 5.
Participants ran the distances of 2, 5, 10 and 21 km.
This year we set a record: a participant from Ethiopia ran a half marathon for 1:03:00. The highlight of the event was the family run. In addition, people with special needs also took part.
The marathon was also attended by the mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko. The mayor took part in the charitable run "Winners" at a distance of 2 km in support of the heroes of the social project. The funds raised in the race will be used to purchase sport prostheses for veterans and volunteers of the ATO.
Yesterday the festival of Pysanka (Easter egg) started in Kyiv.
