Last year we had a dream to hold a marathon in the heart of Moscow. Our goal was to see people run through the main streets of the city in order to achieve their dream – the finish line at the Luzhniki. In 2013, 2366 participants ran unique route of the Moscow Marathon for the first time. As a result, a new record was set by the number of runners who finished the marathon and the dream became a reality.

"From Dream to Reality"  this is the slogan of the Moscow Marathon 2014. 

What is your dream? To cover the distance of 42,2 km for the first time or to set a personal marathon record? To run through the streets of central Moscow, engraving unforgettable city views into your memory or to repeat last year's success by running the Moscow Marathon one more time? Whatever your goal – we look forward to meet you and help you to attain your dream. We eagerly await you on September 21, 2014 in Luzhniki!

We did it!

More than 10 000 people took part in the second Moscow Marathon. Hundreds of volunteers and thousands of happy smiles, millions of burned calories and something that defies the harsh statistics of numbers - the feeling that one is able to transcend oneself. With such aftertaste participants of the second Moscow Marathon - classiс distance length of 42 kilometers and 195 meters, left Olympic Complex "Luzhniki".

Salomon Barngetuni from Kenya finished the distance first (in just 2 hours 17 minutes 24 seconds), while Irina Smolnikova from Kazakhstan who finished the distance in 2 hours 40 minutes 22 seconds celebrated a victory for the second year in a row. Sergey Zyryanov from Moscow (2 hours 19 minutes 37 seconds) and Sergey Marchuk from Kiev (2 hours 19 minutes 48 seconds) have finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Among women Akimenkova Oksana from Podolsk (2 hours 43 minutes 29 seconds) and Denisova Lubov from Gainesville (2 hours 44 minutes 41 seconds) have attempted to compete with the winner. However, the real heroes of the day are the leaders of the corporate relay - Yandex, who defeated opponents, and the winners of the satellite –race 10 km long; the first place among men took Akhmadeev Rinas (29 minutes 23 seconds), Minshin Ildar (29 minutes 24 seconds) came 2nd and Michael Maximov (29 minutes 43 seconds) came 3rd. In the women's championship – the 1st place – Sergeeva Irina (33 minutes 49 seconds), the 2nd place – Popkova Natalia (33 minutes 55 seconds) and Trilinskaya Nadejda (34 minutes 16 seconds) came 3rd.

The second Moscow Marathon, which has become a prominent part of the international sports movement, set new standards in the urban culture of running and a healthy lifestyle in general. This is just a warm-up: the final kilometer of the Moscow Marathon 2014 was the starting point for future races in the third season of the running. Having caught our breath, we will set new records next year. This is the only way that requires more efforts and expanding own limits, this is the only way we can move forward – turning the dream into reality.
