3. DISTANCES

10 km Laduks main run - The most popular race at Peetri Jooks, with timekeeping, rankings and awards. Everyone who is at least 16 years old and physically able of running or walking 10 kilometres is welcome to participate. People younger than 16 must have a parent's written permission to participate. 

5 km charity run - A race for charity and for moving together. Everyone who is physically fit enough to run or walk the distance is welcome to participate. Finish times will be recorded and the fastest in the general classification will be awarded, but the main goal of this race is to simply enjoy moving. 5€ from every ticket to this race will be donated to charity.

5 km youth run - As the name suggests, this distance is meant for young athletes. Finish times will be recorded and there will be awards for the fastest. Boys and girls born 2003-2010 are welcome to participate. Younger children must have a parent's written permission to participate in this race.

5 km stroller run - A unique and fun stroller run that allows mothers and fathers, but also grandparents or older siblings to bring the youngest members of their family to the race. There is no timekeeping and no rankings will be determined at the stroller run.

250 m children's runs - A race for the smallest runners of the family, taking place right in the race centre. There are no rankings and results at the children's races because every participant is a winner.

When registering at the race centre there is no risk of not being able to participate. With pre-registrations there is always a chance that plans change and someone won't be able to participate after all. To compensate, we offer a discount for pre-registrations. The earlier you register, the greater the risk of plans changing - therefore, a greater discount!

7.7. TICKET GUARANTEE IN 2020 - if we are forced to cancel the 2020 event, all registrations will be transferred to the next Peetri Jooks event in 2021. No money lost!

7.4. Larger groups and teams (6 or more people) are eligible for a group discount. Please contact us at aerobike@aerobike.ee to claim the discount.
