In Novosibirsk, there are several annual mass events dedicated to running, arranged to various occasions or simply aimed at maintaining interest in sports. The all-Russian semi-marathon ZaBeg is one of them. In 2017, this race was held for the first time. His goals were the popularization of a healthy lifestyle and sport, inculcating love for the motherland, mobilizing strong-willed participants, creating the largest running event for amateurs and professionals alike.
«ZaBeg» was held in 10 cities of Russia: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Kazan, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Vladivostok. On May 21, thousands of participants in different cities started at one time, regardless of time zones. There were several stations to choose from 21 km (a semi-marathon), 1 km, 5 km, 10 km.
LexProf did not ignore this event. The most athletic member of LexProf Galina Valiulina tried her hand at 10 km distance. To run such a distance, you need not only a good sporting form, but also endurance, endurance and, of course, belief in yourself, in your strength. Even a paid registration did not prevent to join the team of enthusiasts - professional sportsmen and amateurs.
Galina shares her impressions,
A friend told me about this event and invited me to participate. I prefer power sports more, but still, I decided to try. I really liked the organization - I saw a serious approach. An obligatory condition for the participation was the provision of a medical certificate of health. I set my own record, improving the result by almost 3 minutes, - ran for 48 minutes 38 seconds. This, of course, contributed to my preliminary training. And as a memory to each participant of the competition was given a medal, very beautiful and big!
A pleasant bonus to your own record is not only a medal but also a publication with a photo on the NGS city news site under the heading «The most charming athletes on the streets of Novosibirsk.».
And let «ZaBeg» is not so popular in our city, as, for example, the Siberian Running Festi, held since 2001, but it is hoped that its popularity will only grow! And the LexProf team is now planning to participate in another running event, of which it is a legal partner, - the charity run Sibir 'Legal Run, which will be held on May 27. Join now!
