Ultima Thule Marathon in Kuressaare
The author behind the idea of organising an Ultima Thule Marathon is Rasmus Kagge. In December 2015, he proposed the idea at the development conference of Saare County "Ultima Thule – everything is possible at the edge of the world". Madis Kallas, Mayor of Kuressaare, took note and now, Saare County is holding its very own marathon.
Two distances are offered for sports enthusiasts: a marathon (42.195 km) and a half marathon (21.1 km). In addition to runners, walkers and Nordic walkers are also welcome to the 21.1 km distance.
