Last year, 8000 people took part in the start of the Moscow Half Marathon, which made it the most massive in Russia. This year, the organizers plan to defend the title of the largest half marathon in the country. The number of people wishing to take part in the race has grown, so the organizers not only increased the number of quotas, but also added new distances: 10 km, 5 km and 3 km. As a result, on May 21, 20,000 participants will go to the start in Luzhniki, who will become part of the grand event.

The scenic route of the half marathon will pass in one circle along the embankments of the Moskva River with a view of St. Basil's Cathedral, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the Kremlin. Participants in the 10, 5 and 3 km races will run in the opposite direction, towards the Government House, along the Luzhnetskaya, Savvinskaya and Krasnopresnenskaya embankments.
