Traditions appreciated, let's continue!


The great number of participants, the trust and appreciation, all of it has made us believe that the run "Apkārt Cēsīm" is here to stay! I believe that it will become an annual event which we'll anticipate every Spring. Spring is not far off, get Your shoes ready!

Spring is coming!

Spring is coming and Cēsis is once again inviting running enthusiasts. Last year we made a great comeback. The renewed running festival has garnered appreciation not only from athletes, but also from the municipality of Cēsis county. That puts an even bigger responsibility to do even better! Therefore we are actively preparing and thinking about new and exciting additions! The goal is to see the race "Apkārt Cēsīm" not only in Latvian athlete's calendars, but also in foreign one's too! The opportunity to to meet and to compete with the best Latvian runners serves as good motivation to people to strive towards their goals! See You in Cēsis!
