X Siberian International Marathon

The 10th anniversary Siberian International Marathon was held on August 7th, 1999, Omsk, Russia. As it was the jubilee one the organisers tried their best to make this sport competition unforgettable for all runners, regardless of their age, sex, and distance they run. Everyone can find a distance for himself: a marathon, 10 km fun-run, a children's mini-marathon, a roller skating race, an Ekiden marathon relay event.

The 10th SIM was the first to which elite foreign athletes were officially invited. A trio of south African athletes - Melk Tiro Mothuli, Nixon Nkodima, and Isaac Tschabalala - came with their coach, Dewald Steyn, to contest the first place prize - a 'SVYATOGOR' car. Altogether, there were 15 foreign runners from 11 countries.
