Running is one of the easiest and friendliest sports. You only require a few items to get started. Just a pair of shoes and shorts or tracksuit, and you will be good to go. However, being a professional athlete demands discipline and commitment. Across the world, various running events are to take place. Some have already concluded, and others are yet to commence. Below is a short list of some of the running events that will take place in the remaining months of 2021.
Generali Berlin Half Marathon
The event will take place in August 2021 in Berlin. It will happen amid the Covid 19 pandemic. As such, participants and spectators will observe a high degree of hygiene. The event aims to enhance social togetherness. Donations and other forms of contributions organised by the International Generali Group help people living in hardship exploit their potential.
Helsinki City Running Day
The biggest running event dubbed Helsinki City Running Day will happen on October 2, 2021, at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. The event has over 10000 runners set to participate. The marathon will be a one-kick-off event with participants running through a 42195 metres route before concluding at the iconic Helsinki Olympic Stadium.
BMW Berlin Marathon
The long-awaited fastest marathon in history, the BMW Berlin Marathon, will take place on September 26 2021. Berlin has one of the top-class environments for marathons across the world. There is very little traffic, and the landscapes are flat. This year’s event will see a surge in the number of attendees since last year’s edition didn’t happen. In 2018, the renowned Eliud Kipchoge smashed the world’s record in this competition.
