Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest MARATHON 2020 edition - ticket to Tokyo for elite athletes from around the world
Bucharest RUNNING CLUB announces that 250 elite runners will start the 13th edition of Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest MARATHON. Bucharest will thus become, on October 11, one of the few destinations in the world, which, in 2020, offers athletes the opportunity to obtain a place in an internationally accredited ranking, which will allow them to qualify for the Olympic Games in Tokyo. The novelty of the event is the Marathon Flame, a symbol of performance, which will arrive in Bucharest on this occasion with the Greek delegation.
After analyzing the current situation and consulting with the Romanian authorities and the partners involved in the organization process, Bucharest RUNNING CLUB decided that this year's edition of Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest MARATHON should take place physically for professional runners (250 participants), on October 11th and virtually October 11-18 for runners who, given the special conditions of the period we are going through- want to remain in the competitive calendar , to continue to support the social and environmental causes they believe in and to add to the personal collection the medal of the 2020 edition.
"Raiffeisen Bank is, for the thirteenth consecutive year, a partner of the Bucharest marathon and welcomes the start this year both physically, for 250 elite runners, but also online for lovers of long-distance running,"
said Corina Vasile, Communication Director, Raiffeisen Bank.
