The new addition to our main race (Astana Marathon) Astana Half is an organic continuation of the very first half marathon in the capital of Kazakhstan, which we organised over ten years ago in Astana Central Park on 22 September 2012. Since then the 21.1k distance was part of our annual race until 2017.

Due to a numerous requests from our runners we decided to create a 21.1k and 5k distances race in late spring and give a chance to those who are training for our autumn marathon to test themselves before hand.
