Weekend Marathons in Moscow covered Land and Sea

Whether you prefer running or surfing, this past weekend offered both possibilities for people looking to enjoy good Moscow weather.

Around 25,000 runners participated in the eighth annual Moscow Marathon on Sunday.
Moscow Marathon is Russia's largest running event.
The marathon's route passed the capital's most iconic attractions, including the Bolshoi Theatre, the Christ the Savior Cathedral and the Kremlin.
While the kids' run was canceled due to the coronavirus, the annual handbike and wheelchair races took place as planned.

At the same time, many professional stand up paddleboarding (SUP) surfers and amateurs competed in the heart of Moscow – on the Water Channal.
This event was a part of the “Moscow Aquatoria”  festival.
The paddleboard race covered 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles) 
Normally Water Channel is open for cruise ships only, but this time it was closed for navigation and was available for SUP participants only. 
That was quite a unique opportunity for them to ride and see Moscow from water.
The event concluded with a colorful paddleboard carnival – participants in special costumes attended the parade.
Over 500 participants from across the country joined in the parade. 

Flyboarders also showed off their skills.

That was great fun!
