In Kazan, about fifteen thousand people took part in the “Russian Ski Track” race. The largest number of skiers were at the new site in the Mirny LBC - 5.3 thousand, the city mayor’s office reported.
In addition to this site, the starts took place in the Gorkinsko-Ometyevsky forest park, in the Kazanka floodplain, in the waters of Lake Komsomolskoye in Derbyshki, and at the Lokomotiv stadium in Yudino.
We also organized sites near schools so that students could take part close to home.
At the end, the oldest and youngest participant, 9-year-old Ksenia Gromova and 74-year-old Mudaris Khikmatullin, were traditionally awarded gifts and a commemorative medal.
Let us remind you: the competitions took place in many regions of Tatarstan. The President of Russia greeted the participants of the All-Russian mass race.
