The main task of the new series of races is to popularize fitness and outdoor sports in the regions of our country. The organizers chose the city of Yoshkar-Olu as a pilot site for the project. Together with them, the Olympic champion of Sochi-2014 and the silver medalist of the last Olympics in Pyeongchang, figure skater Dmitry Solovyov, arrived in the capital of the Republic of Mari El.
The sports festival was opened by master classes in functional training and other types of training from the FormatFit team, after which they launched a children's 100-meter race. It was attended by more than 300 children aged 3 to 11 years.
Despite the fact that the main race in the streets of the city counted on 1,000 participants, a lot more runners came to the start. Ten men and women who showed the best time at the finish were awarded souvenirs from FormatFit and the official outfitter of the Russian Olympic team - the company ZASPORT.
New events and races from the FormatFit team in the regions of Russia will be announced in the near future.
