On April 22 Kyiv will host an international half marathon 8th Nova Poshta Kyiv Half Marathon. Due to the annual running event, the streets of the city will be partially blocked along the route of the half marathon before (April 21) and on the day of the event (April 22).
Blocking the traffic is one of the mandatory conditions for mass running events. Thus, more than 10 thousand participants of the event, including children, the elderly and people with disabilities, receive a security guarantee on the route.
This year, organizers of the event – Run Ukraine deliberately abandoned a course of 10 km to reduce the time of blocking the streets. That is why the time for blocking the Trukhanivska street is shortened (was until 1:00 p.m., this year – till 12:00 p.m.). The time of blocking Naberezhno-Khreschatytska, Rybalska, Naberezhne Shose and Borychiv descent is reduced by 50 minutes, since 2 km was within the start-up for the 10 km. The blocking time for 10 km – 1h 20h, the blocking time for 2km – 20 min.
In 2017, blocking of these streets was until 1:30 p.m., this year it will be until 12:40 p.m.
The organizer of the Kyiv half marathon – Run Ukraine company recommends drivers to plan their travel around the city in advance with an alternative route, taking into account the blocking schedule.
On this day, preparatory works will be continued on Kontraktova Ploscha, consequently traffic will be limited from 05:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. the next day (April 22) on the Grigory Skovoroda street and Kontraktova Ploscha.
