Thousands of running enthusiasts will begin their journeys around the five races of the SuperHalfs series later this month as the 2022 season finally gets underway with the return of the Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon on Saturday 2 April.
Anticipation is high for the launch of the innovative new series, which has brought five of the world’s most beautiful races under the same banner with the aim of promoting running, tourism and environmental sustainability in each of the member cities.
The SuperHalfs series, which includes races in Prague, Lisbon, Copenhagen, Cardiff and Valencia had been preparing to launch in the Spring of 2020 but had to frozen whilst large events and international travel were not possible during the pandemic, to guarantee the safety of participants and to ensure the great experience runners were expecting.
Whilst restrictions on international travel remain in some places, the situations in the five countries of the SuperHalfs series has improved dramatically in recent months, meaning it is at last possible for the series to get underway.
Following such a difficult period, the series will offer committed runners and experience seekers a new opportunity to get out and travel once again whilst doing what they love.
They will be able to map out their own running adventure whilst being rewarded for their efforts with exclusive benefits – working to earn a SuperMedal by completing the five-race series and earning stamps in a digital SuperPassport when they complete each race.
Runners will have 36 months to complete the series, starting from the date of the first 2022 race completed and can now create and download their own digital SuperPassport.
SuperHalfs Managing Director, Sašo Belovski commented: “We are delighted that the SuperHalfs Series can finally get underway in 2022. We’d like to express our sincere thanks to all for their patience and understanding during such a difficult period.’
‘We understand that the delay to the beginning of the series, as we waited for the situation to improve in all five of our host cities to improve, has been frustrating to many. We now look forward together to a bright future and many happy kilometers ran together.’
