The Narva Energy Run is an event at which Estonian half-marathon champions come to light.
This year it was scheduled for June 13th.
The tenth in a row – one might say, anniversary – the race cannot take place because of the epidemic. So far, two options are being considered:
- Virtual race. Each participant runs the allotted distance on any route to the athlete’s choice, then sends the result to the organizers. There is already experience in holding a competition in this format: this is how the May women’s race was held.
- Reschedule a race to a different date. So far, the approximate date is called either autumn of 2020, or even 2021.
“Negotiations with the Athletics Union continue until the question of what will happen to the half-marathon championship has been resolved,” Lillalik said.
The organizers of the Narva Energy Run will announce their decision in May, after negotiations with city authorities and event sponsors.
