At 5:30 pm, free children’s races start where boys and girls up to 11 years can show their mettle.

Once again, youth race is scheduled at dusk with lights shining. 10-29 year old sports enthusiasts are expected to start the race. This is an entertaining run, with light and sound effects. The start of the exciting three-kilometer race will be given at 9pm in front of Endla Theatre. The trail runs in the city centre and in the Beach Park.
