12 Sep 27×3 Riga Marathon, come and join us!
Each of the 27 countries that will host a marathon will have one or more selected beneficiaries of the funds raised by that country and RMHC Latvia is Latvia’s designated charity! Charities are selected by the organisers in collaboration with Ferrero representatives from that country. 75% of the funds raised in that country will STAY in that country and go to that local charity. The remaining 25% will go towards Inspire as the organisation responsible for this event.
We have a small team of runners in Latvia, please join us and participate in this record-breaking event! You don’t have to run the whole marathon, you can join for a ‘fun run’ distance or even bike alongside. The goal is to participate and promote health and awareness!
