This competition is free and at the finish of each distance (from 50 to 400 m) every future marathon runner will get a small nice present and a commemorative medal of the Second Pskov Tricolor TV Marathon.
The marathon takes place within the frames of the big socially oriented project of Time of Victories with Tricolor TV designed to demonstrate the advantages of a healthy lifestyle as well as to motivate the residents of our country to participate in actions and events aimed at development and popularization of track and field athletics.
In 2017 we started implementing the all-Russian social sport project Time of Victories with Tricolor TV that was designed to demonstrate the advantages of a healthy lifestyle. Healthy lifestyle and sport is victory over oneself, cultivation of character and will power, a passion of stout-hearted people. As leaders in our industry we motivate our subscribers, employees and partners to daily victories and continuous forward movement. Thus a big team of Tricolor TV sportsmen takes part in Pskov marathon. Another marathon, TRICOLOR TV White Nights, takes place in June with our support and direct involvement.
