The White Nights Marathon in St. Petersburg is an annual event that owes its name to the "White Nights". During this time of the year the sun never quite sets, which leads to a beautiful sky. During the marathon the participants run past the most famous sights of this Russian city, starting at the world famous palace plan in front of the Hermitage. This is also the finishing point of this marathon. Is the marathon distance a bit too long for you? Then you can also opt for the 10 km!
