Athletic and fitness events

Pärnu has no losers

If anything is going to be done in Pärnu, it will be big. This also applies to sports. Sporting events attract thousands of athletes to the city, be it the Jüri Jaanson Two Bridges Run, the Jõulumäe cycling marathon or the Pärnu Summer Cup international football festival.

Even during the quieter months of the year, there are a couple of dozen sporting events taking place in Pärnu and Pärnu County. From spring to autumn, however, there are two to three times as many major and minor competitions as there are days in a month. Motorcycling, aquatics, athletics, heavy athletics, equestrian and cycling, extreme sports – there is always something to do and experience. A real sports holiday awaits sporting enthusiasts in Pärnu, filled with the ticking of stopwatches, the thumping of feet, the whistling of tyres, and the shouts of victory from morning till night. Losers do not shout. But there are no losers in the competitions organised in Pärnu. Because they take place in Pärnu.

Running competitions

The Pärnu Two Bridges Club organises various exciting running competitions throughout the year. The Dune Race opens the running season in Pärnu County in the spring. The track, which offers beautiful views and a moderate challenge, mostly runs on soft forest soil, passing through the Luitemaa nature reserve. The beginning of summer is marked by the Pärnu County Victory Day Marathon. In addition, a half marathon, Pärnu Summer Run, and children’s races are planned.

Our summer capital Pärnu could easily be awarded the title of Estonia’s sports capital, especially in the autumn, when Jüri Jaanson's Two Bridges Race takes place. The sports event, which lasts the entire weekend, offers activities to the whole family.

The summer vibe is extended by the Pärnu Beach Run, which finishes the club’s season.

Jõulumäe Cycling Marathon

The cycling marathon, known for being well organised and somewhat challenging, takes place in the beautiful forest area between the Uulu settlement and the Tolkuse bog viewing platform. The trail has a couple of sections paved with gravel, plenty of soft forest trails, solid forest trails, sandy sections and, depending on rainfall, a couple of muddy patches.
