Two weeks remain to the first marathon race in the winding paths of the iconic Abr (Cloud) Forest in Semnan with the primary goal of highlighting the tourist attractions of a province that seeks to portray itself as a new destination by 2021. 
The sport and recreational event is aimed at introducing the breathtaking nature and stunning historical and cultural attractions in the province while upholding environmental preservation standards, Moein Afzali, director of the event said.
"The match is organized in two 42 km and 21 km routes passing through Abr Village, Qatari Village, Caspian Hyrcanian mixed forests and the areas in the Alborz Mounts before turning back to Abr Village," IRNA quoted Afzali as saying.
Reportedly, over 50 Iranian runners have registered for the event, and although the race has been fully booked, enthusiasts still kept applying for attendance, compelling the organizers to consider expanding the initial capacity.
