My height is about 2 meters. I know about recommendations on power trainings for tall people. Are there recommendations for such people if we say about long-distance running (half-marathon, marathon)?

If you're tall your musculoskeletal system can be exposed to the increased load during training. Therefore, you should take this risk into consideration regardless of a kind of training.
It's recommended to avoid intensive jumping exercises as an impact load can cause inflammation processes in your joints or ligaments and back pain as well.
Be careful while training with weights. Bodyweight exercises should be preferable.
Exercises on "decompression of the spine" should be done for injury prevention. It's a set of exercises aimed at the release of muscle tension in back and spinal stretching. The set consists of twistings, throwings legs behind a head, hang on the bar etc.
