    First of all: Riga is a wonderful city that is absolute worth a weekend trip! The Riga Marathon is a gold label race and a very good production. Runners have the choice to either run the full or the half marathon that both start at 8.40 am. Elite start is at 8.30 am. A 10k race starts at 1pm. The race starts in downtown and the course is flat. The middle part of the half marathon is very beautiful taking runners through the city centre and through the old town. Unfortunately km 14 to 18 is quite boring why I rated the scenery with 3 shoes only. The finish area is lovely offering milk shakes, massage service, barbecue etc. The medal is beautiful!!! This year weather conditions were extreme as Latvia and the baltic area suffered from a heat wave. It was sunny but too hot to run good times. Normally it should be much cooler in Latvia 🙂
