The idea to hold the marathon in the capital of Kazakhstan was initiated in London during the half marathon The Royal Parks Half-Marathon. Last year Astana hosted the first race at a distance of 42 kilometers and 195 meters. This year's marathon is scheduled for a distance of 42.2, 21.1 and 10 kilometers.
The motto of the mass race "Astana Marathon” is “One Steppe Beyond”. Three distances are given for choice: 42.2 km, 21.1 km and 10 km, corporate participation is also possible.
All funds will be donated to charities.
