Freedom Run in Riga 2014

Posted at:22 April, 2014 in Blog, Special Events

Riga was voted the European Capital of Culture for the year 2014, and as part of their year long programme of events and concerts, they’re also going to be spicing up their annual marathon.

The annual Nordea Riga Marathon is part of the European Capital of Culture Programme this year, and will take place on the 18th of May.

This time, the marathon route has been altered to also include the main street of Riga, Rīga–Brīvības or Freedom street, and this part of the marathon has been names “A Kilometre of Culture on Freedom Street”.  They’re putting on a special programme of culture, music and singing on Brīvības iela during the marathon, to spur on you runners to the finish line!

This year’s marathon is hoping to surprise the runners and the spectators, presenting the main street of Riga from a different cultural and historic viewpoint with plenty of bands playing favourites from the 1920s until today.
