HELLO, FRIEND!

This year you will run at the anniversary 10 th Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon that will bring

together runners from all over the world. This will be a powerful sports festival that will shake

the capital city of Ukraine.

On October 2010, 546 runners came to the races of Kyiv marathon and engraved their

names in the history. Could we predict back then how great our event is bound to become?

I doubt it. Even though we wanted it more than anything else.

The history of Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon is more that the story of Run Ukraine.

This is the story of every runner who has ever participated in our events, the story of

Ukrainian and world running community that was shaped and went through changes along

with us, this is the story of challenges, failures and victories.

This is the story of every runner. And today you will make yourself a part of the history

of Kyiv marathon.

It is very important for us that on this festive day you will run with us.

Share your victory with us.

Best regards,

Dmytro Chernitskyi

General Manager of Run Ukraine

THE HISTORY OF KYIV MARATHON

In 2010, Kyiv joined the honorary list of cities

running their own annual marathon races.

It was then, on October 16, 2010, that our

capital city hosted its first marathon with

546 participants from 13 countries,

144 athletes were running the classic

marathon of 42 km 195 m. The winners of

the main event of the day were Volodymyr

Horban from Kyiv and Liudmyla Shelest

from Sumy.

The race was not a one-time event instantly

turning into a sports tradition of the city.

In the second marathon in 2011 we had

more than 1,000 runners participating.

1,693 participants registered in 2013,

and in the spring of 2014 almost three and

a half thousand athletes from 32 countries

started their race from Kontraktova Square

at the Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon.

When it comes to sports records, 2013 was

the most productive year in this regards,

when Andrii Naumov from Donetsk set

the best time in the history of Kyiv marathon

as he finished 42 km 195 m in 2 hours and

19 minutes. On the same day Tetiana

Rybalchenko demonstrated the best time

among women, finishing the classic course

in 2 hours and 44 minutes.

Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon pays special

attention to children’s races since care for

the next generation and promotion of love

for sports and healthy lifestyle among

children is one of the main missions

of modern Ukrainian society.

Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon has always

been not only a sports event, but also

a symbolic event bringing people together.

For example, in 2013 the runners dedicated

their race to the victims of the terrorist

attack that took place during Boston

marathon. In 2014 the athletes joined

in the desire to honor the heroes of

the “Heavenly hundred”.

It should be noted that while a variety of

countries is represented in Kyiv Marathon, the

championship in the competition still belongs

to Ukrainian athletes.

In the fall of 2015, the sixth Kyiv international

marathon “Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon” took

place. The special feature of that race was

the unique route of the marathon course —

it ran in one lap around the city.

2016 brought about the 7 th Kyiv international

marathon “Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon 2016”

to the capital city of Ukraine. Neither heavy

winds that occasionally turned into storms,

nor cool weather сould prevent the biggest

event of the year from happening.

On October 8, 2017, the 8 th Wizz Air Kyiv

City Marathon 2017 took place in the

capital city. 10,000 runners from

52 countries came together

at the Independence Square.

On October 7, 2018, the 9 th international

Kyiv marathon Wizz Air Kyiv City

Marathon 2018 took place in Kyiv.

11,607 runners from 50 countries took

part in the race on various courses, and

15,000 people came to cheer the

athletes on. The National Record of

Ukraine was set that day:

a fully-equipped firefighter (with the

equipment weight of 18 kilograms)

overcame the course of 42 km.

5 FACTS ABOUT THE ANNIVERSARY

10 th WIZZ AIR KYIV CITY MARATHON

On October 5-6, 2019 Wizz Air Kyiv City

Marathon will celebrate its 10 th anniversary.

What are the special features of this year’s

Kyiv marathon and what should participants

expect from it? Read to discover!

THIS IS THE BIGGEST KYIV MARATHON IN

THE HISTORY OF INDEPENDENT UKRAINE

The first Kyiv marathon brought together

546 participants from 12 countries.

This year we expect over 17,000 runners

participating on various courses of

the 10 th Wizz Air Kyiv City, which is

30 times more than back in 2010.

The marathon is growing, developing

and becoming more and more powerful.

It is really cool, to say the least.

FOR THE FIRST TIME KYIV

MARATHON WILL TAKE PLACE OVER

THE COURSE OF TWO DAYS

In the previous years all races of Kyiv

marathon — children’s, individual and

team races — all took place on the same

day. This year, because of the scale of the

event, we had to organize it over the course

of two days in two different locations.

On October 5, we will have children’s

races, family run and races with dogs

taking place at the Expocenter of Ukraine

(VDNG). On the same day there will be

races of 4.2 km and 10 km taking place in

the downtown Kyiv at Sofiiska square.

On October 6, on Sunday, there will be a

marathon race, half marathon race, relay and

team races as well as a charity race of 3 km.

FOR THE FIRST TIME KYIV MARATHON

WILL INCLUDE RACES WITH DOGS

On October 5, on the first day of Wizz

Air Kyiv City Marathon, for the first time

there will be races with dogs Dog Chow ®

Run. Participants will start the race with

their dogs and overcome 3 km or 5 km.

Part of the funds raised will be

transferred to the charity fund

Happy Paw for dog vaccination.

ALMOST THREE HUNDRED ATO/

JFO VETERANS WILL PARTICIPATE

IN THE «VETERAN’S TEN»

On October 5, along with race participants

on the 10 km course, almost three hundred

ATO/JFO veterans, military and volunteers

will start their race. This race can become a

powerful rehabilitation tool for people who

have gone through the terrors of the war

and it can help them return to ordinary life.

The race “Veteran’s Ten” was established

by the Run Ukraine company in 2018

along with the National Council for sports

rehabilitation of defenders of Ukraine

with the support of the President’s

Commissioner on the issues of rehabilitation

of combatants Vadym Svyrydenko.

PARTICIPANTS OF AVON PINK RUN

3 KM WILL BE RAISING FUNDS

FOR THE PURCHASE OF A DIGITAL

MAMMOGRAPHY MACHINE

One and a half thousand runners that

will be running 3 km on October 6

will be doing it for a charitable cause.

50% of the registration fee will be

transferred for the purchase of a digital

mammography machine for one of the

regional hospitals. These races were

established in 2017 and they have been

taking place on a yearly basis ever since.

The digital mammography machine that

was purchased after the race last year is

currently saving lives in Sumy. It has been

used in examination of 306 women, 37 of

them were diagnosed with breast cancer.

HOW CAN I GET TO THE RACE VILLAGE?

This year the Race Village of the

anniversary 10 th Wizz Air Kyiv City

Marathon is located in the downtown area

of Kyiv, at Sofiiska Square. We have a few

suggestions that will help you plan your day

of the race and get to the start line on time.

METRO

To get to the race location on time

and without additional stress, we

suggest you use metro. There are three

metro stations located within walking

distance from the Race Village:

• «Zoloti Vorota» (green line) —

10 minutes

• «Maidan Nezalezhnosti» (blue line) —

10–15 minutes

• «Khreshchatyk» (red line) —

15–20 minutes

TAXI

On the first day of Kyiv marathon, on October

5, you can take a taxi almost to the very

location of the Race Village. Use the address

15 Volodymyrska street as a landmark.

Please, take into account that on October 6

pretty much all of Kyiv downtown will

be closed for traffic, thus making it

impossible to get to the race location

using ground means of transportation.

It is best to give up on the idea of using

ground means of transportation or your

own vehicle on the day of the race. Most

likely you will not be able to park close

to the race location and will spend a lot

of time looking for a parking spot.

Please, remember that you must arrive

at the Race Village at least one hour

before you race to change, leave your

belongings at the luggage storage,

warm up and find your starting block.

for athletes to feel moral and physical

support that helps you overcome your

of professional runners running in the peloton.

We call them pacemakers. Pacemakers are

experienced runners that run along with

race participants not to win the race, but

to help the participants keep the optimal

running pace for various groups of athletes

that would help the participants endure this

challenging course.

rub the body sore.

• It is recommended to drink water at

every food and hydration station during

the marathon, at least a few sips.

• It is necessary to run at your own

pace from the start, rather than

chase after faster runners.

• Eat your usual food the day before

the race — no need to taste new

dishes and ingredients. Completely

avoid fried, smoked, spicy foods,

and food high in fiber.

• Remember to cover your head with a

hat and pull back your hair. The effect

of direct sunlight leads to vasodilation

and increased blood flow to the head,

and it may lead to heat or sun stroke.

• After the finish it is recommended to eat

some fruits and take a few sips of water.

• Make sure you change after the

race into dry set of clothes.

• Most importantly — listen to your own body.

• Do not stop abruptly after the

finish, it is recommended to do

some exercises afterwards.

• Smile, greet each other on the

route and enjoy the process.
