BAUYRZHAN TUYAKOV, DIRECTOR, YOUTH POLICY DEPARTMENT, MANGYSTAU REGION:
- These kinds of marathons are organized all around the world. Take for example, the Berlin Marathon, the Boston Marathon and the London Marathon. They popularize the cities. For example, Astana and Almaty are very active now. In May of this year we plan to organize a marathon in Aktau. We expect it will become traditional and annual.
