Arranged by the charity organization Wings of Angels, the inclusive half-marathon will take place in Loshitsa Park on 31 March. Melting distance means that runners will have to turn back at half the distance and run back along the track they already know. Those, who manage to run for half the distance, will get a blue cape of leadership and will get the right to turn back other runners. Thus, the distance for less trained runners will “melt” since they will have to run a shorter distance to reach the finish line. Children will be able to run special shorter distances. They will also enjoy activity zones and sweet prizes.
