Siberian International Marathon will go back to previous schedule 

The decision to reschedule the date of SIM from August to September was made in 2013 because the previous year on the day of marathon was so hot weather that about 30 participants were taken to hospital due to heat stroke. That’s why the organizers made a decision to hold the marathon in September but they encountered some other problems. First, the Siberian marathon was held at the same time with other important sport events and a lot of athletes chose to participate in other competitions. Second, the weather left much to be desired – cloudy skies, strong wind, rain and freezing air made many participants to stay at their homes. As it turned out SIM-2015 was the coldest marathon ever and gathered the smallest number of participants for the last ten years. Due to this reasons the organizers decided to go back to the previous date. “The marathon was always held right before the City Day and we had a lot of participants back then and plus many people came just to support those who ran. So we decided that next year we will go back to the previous date and organize the marathon in August”, says the head of local ministry of sports Aleksander Fabtitsius.
