Each year, approximately 18,000 runners from 40 countries are expected for the Almaty Marathon. This major event offers athletes and guests alike a great opportunity to get to know the Central Asian city of Almaty, which attracts more than one million tourists every year, especially since visitors from Germany and other countries are not required to have a visa. The Almaty Marathon consists of races in five different disciplines: a marathon on 42.195 kilometres, a corporate relay race Ekiden on the same route, a half-marathon of 21 kilometres, a ten-kilometre race and a Nordic walking race of ten kilometres. All races start and finish on the Republic Square and pass places, which are attractive to tourists, such as the Almaty Financial District and the Central Stadium. The free sporting event is organized as a charity run. The proceeds from voluntary donations go to charitable projects.
