About ManoBegimas

In 2004 Vilnius Marathon debuted as a feast for runners and the people of Vilnius. The event was positively met by Vilnius City Municipality, which saw it as a way to foster a healthy lifestyle, add a new festival to the city’s calendar of events and put Vilnius on the global map of acknowledged marathon cities.

The distance of 42 km 195 metres was first conquered by runners in Vilnius on September 11, 2004. This day opened a new page in the history of Vilnius as a little over 200 professional and non-professional runners from 10 countries around the world joined the event.
