World Athletics president Sebastian Coe has declared Riga - the World Road Running Capital 2023! And not without a reason!
Riga will host the first World Athletics Road Running Championships on September 30 - October 1, 2023!
This is the first ever World Athletics Road Running Championships in which anyone can take part in, not only as spectators but also as registered participants!
The registration is open now, so take the historically unique opportunity to sign up and run alongside world class athletes, record holders and Olympians on October 1.
We will crown the world mile, 5 km, and half-marathon champions in Riga! But what's great - everyone can register for the Mass start in any of the distances (even all three) to conquer the courses alongside the world's fastest runners!
All World Champs' participants - Champions, quickest elite runners and every recreational runner alike - will receive a unique medal designed in Latvia!
Don't wait - register for the World Champs now so you can train throughout the summer and feel ready for your race on October 1!
Entry fees will increase closer to the event!
