The lap length is 6700m for half-marathon runners, and 170m more each lap, for marathon runners. Mini marathon runners will run one shortened lap of 6 km, half-marathon runners will have three shortened laps, and marathon runners six.

The track itself will be clearly marked and secured, with over 80 volunteers in charge of runners safety. Referees will be located on turns, as well as on start/finish position. Refreshment stations will be placed on turns, with one having only water, while the other one will have not only water, but fruits, dextrose drink and alike.

Novelty in regard to previous Night Marathons is that marathon and half-marathon runners will start from the FC Index stadion and run the lap of honour on the same place!
