In winter, December 18, the sports organization Sporter and the website Mama.md will hold the fourth Carnival race in anticipation of the New Year – Christmas Marathon (Maratonul de Crăciun) 2016, which will be held on the Great National Assembly Square in Chisinau.
In 2015, 1000 fairy-tale characters in carnival costumes ran at the same time across the central street of Chisinau with a great mood, because they only had to conquer 3 km, collecting all the gifts along the entire distance.
This year, the Carnival race will start on the central square of Chisinau at 12:00, and a thousand runners with gift bags wearing fabulous fairy-tale costumes must run along the main street of the capital and collect lots of gifts from the partners-elves on the course – 3 km. The main thing is to manage carrying all the collected gifts!
At the finish line, each participant will receive a symbolic medal, after which the voting will be held to identify three coolest images (costumes) and awarding with prizes from the partners of the race.
Participation in the family race is open to all interested persons, who register in advance on the website craciun.md.
The organizers provide a limited number of participants – 1,000 people.
Time of the event: 10:00 – issuance of starter packs and participants’ numbers. At 12:00 – general start.
A prerequisite for the participation in Christmas Marathon (Maratonul de Crăciun) 2016 is a carnival costume!
