This year’s traditional running event at SPIEF will be held under the motto ‘Towards the Friendship Games’ and will kick off a series of runs supporting the global project of Russian sports.
Early in the morning on the first day of SPIEF’s main programme, Forum participants and city residents will run 5 km, starting from St. Isaac’s Cathedral. Leaders of business and top politicians, including representatives of foreign delegations, will join in.
Umar Kremlev, President of the International Boxing Association and the visionary behind the World Friendship Games project, will participate in the opening ceremony of the run and then join the run through the historic centre of St. Petersburg.
The run, the largest event in this year’s SPIEF Sport Games, is organized by the Roscongress Foundation and the League of Heroes, with support from the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation.
Winners and medallists will be determined among both SPIEF participants and city residents. The results of the corporate team competition will also be announced. The largest teams will be from Avito and Kismet, each with over 50 participants registered.

With the support of the high-tech fuel brand G-Drive, the Russian Special Olympics team will also take part in the race.

For the second consecutive year, participants can choose to run in an excursion format and learn interesting stories about notable landmarks along the race route.

Access to the event for participants is by prior registration only.
