Anti-Doping Program

The Moscow Half Marathon is committed to the principles of pure sport and strives to create a healthy and fair competitive environment for its participants.

Since 2017, the Moscow Half Marathon has been collaborating with the RUSADA Russian Anti-Doping Agency to demonstrate its commitment to fair, safe and doping-free competitions.

Anti-doping rules apply to all participants. Every athlete can be tested after the finish. The standard practice provides for selective testing of sportsmen taking prize places. Anti-doping rules violation will cause disqualification and other consequences established by the All-Russian Anti-Doping Rules.

Важные рекомендации

В полумарафоне принимают участие десятки тысяч человек, поэтому необходимо соблюдать некоторые правила. В этом блоке мы рассказываем о том, что делать не рекомендуется или категорически запрещено в целях безопасности участников. Эти правила действительно важны. Пожалуйста, изучите их внимательно.

  • Запрещается размещать автомобили рядом с точкой поддержки – это небезопасно для бегунов и других болельщиков, а также может обернуться штрафом. Лучше добираться до точки поддержки общественным транспортом, на самокате или велосипеде.
  • Запрещается самостоятельно размещать шатры и арки. Пожалуйста, обратитесь к нам для согласования таких конструкций.
  • Запрещается использовать пиротехнику, дымовые шашки и другие средства, которые могут навредить здоровью участников и окружающих. Лучше использовать трещотки, гуделки, свистки, помпоны и другую атрибутику болельщиков.
  • Не раздавайте бегунам воду или еду. Мы позаботились об этом и организовали пункты питания на дистанции.
  • Не выходите на дистанцию – это будет мешать движению бегунов. Пересекайте её только при малом скоплении людей и в организованных для этого местах. Обратитесь к персоналу, который подскажет, где и в какое время можно перейти маршрут.
  • Не создавайте помехи участникам забега. Если кому-то из них требуется медицинская помощь, пожалуйста, обратитесь к судьям или волонтёрам.
