The Republic of Moldova is a small country in south-eastern Europe, with lots of traditions and interesting customs. It is home to the biggest collection of European wines and the biggest complex of wine galleries, a unique atmosphere and fabulous natural landscapes. People from Moldova are very generous and hospitable.

The first edition of the Chisinau International Marathon in 2015, promoted by the ‘Sporter’ organisation in 2, attracted 10000 participants and the second, held on 17 April 2016, pulled in more than 15000 runners from over 50 countries. Runners have several distances to choose from: 42.2km, 21.1km, 10km or 3km – all being run on the main streets of the capital.

More than 17000 people from 75 countries participated in the third edition of the event on 1 October 2017. Amateur and elite runners took part in the races which omitted the 3km but included a 5km and a 1.5km fun run. Race records in the Marathon stand at 2:26:36 to Vitaly Gorbushko and 2:48:35 to Olesya Smovzhenko.

The Chisinau International Marathon 2018 will include Marathon, half marathon, 10.5km and 5km races and a 1.5km fun run. Race entries vary from 10 euros to 24 euros depending on the distance and how early registration is made. The fun run is free and open to all.

The Chisinau International Marathon has been a member of AIMS since 2016 and complies with international measurement requirements and all other standards.
