The sixth Pleven marathon will offer beginner runners extra motivation thanks to a special new challenge. It’s called “My first marathon” and it’s intent is to encourage people to get serious about running and finish the marathon length of the event (42.2km).
If the sense of achievement that awaits at the finish line is not enough by itself, this time there will be some extra reasons to run in the form of an award fund. The top prizes will be a couple of e-bikes built by Bulgarian manufacturer Eljoy.
One of the Tempo bikes will go to a first-time marathon runner and the second one will go to somebody else drawn at random. To enter, beginner runners should confirm upon registration that this is their first marathon.
