Super-Marathon Aims to Promote Baltic Dialogue

St. Petersburg, Russia - An international group of long-distance runners set out from St. Petersburg on Sept. 20, 2014, to “run for peace” in a super-marathon through four nations bordering the Baltic Sea.

This latest super-marathon event, titled “Baltic Dialogue 2014,” will pass through Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The super-marathon will continues east to Kaliningrad.

The International Super-Marathon Association was established in the early 1990s to promote peace and friendship between peoples, to form a favorable perception of citizens of Russia in other nations, and to advertise a healthy lifestyle. In the summer of 2013 an international group of runners completed a 3,100-kilometer (1,864-mile) Super-Marathon from Moscow to Paris.

Runners came not only from the four Baltic neighbors mentioned above but also from Belarus. They are accompanied by staff members and a support vehicle.

The event is organized by the International Super-Marathon Association together with Moscow’s Modern University for the Humanities. It is being sponsored by UPF-Eurasia, the All-Russia Athletic Federation and the federal drug control service of the Russian Federation.
