Stepping Out

Mongolia's capital city Ulaanbaatar has initiated an annual international Marathon, to be held for the first time on 5 June 2010. The Mongolian Olympic Committee and the Ar Mongol Travel Group are co-organisers and are seeking to co-operate with AIMS in order to stage the inaugural International Mongolia Marathon with maximum success.

This event will open Mongolia to all those international runners who seek new running experiences. Mongolia is a country with ancient and still-intact nomadic culture, seemingly endless blue sky and grassland steppe — and clean air.

This marathon will be not only involve running, but also include one of the most colourful and festive events of the running world. Special prizes and surprises, with authentic Mongolian style, await the winners. See you next summer, in the wide open spaces of Genghis Khan's ancient Mongolia.
