September 15, the regional center joined the All-Russian sports event “Cross of the Nation”. In our city, it was 13 times.
Participation in the competition took 2,5 thousand people. The level of training of athletes is very different – from professional athletes to fans of running.
The races took place in different age categories: the oldest participant – 79 years old, and the youngest – 5 years.
“We see from year to year, along with the amateurs at the Cross of the Nation, professional sportsmen, sports veterans, public figures and representatives of different branches of power are leaving, demonstrating that for sports, the age and the tight work schedule are not a hindrance. Those who like an active way of life can always find the time for this, “said the head of the Orla administration, Alexander Muromsky, before the start of the race.
In order to prove his words, he took part in the 2 km race: “I’m happy with the result, I managed to leave behind younger rivals”.
Winners and prize-winners in each age category were awarded with diplomas and medals of the Russian Ministry of Sport. http: //www.orel-adm.ru/index.php? option = com_k2 & view = item & id = …
