May cross-country race in Letovo

On April 14, the school held its first-ever cross-country race. It was our long-standing dream, and finally everything we needed for a great sporting event came together: we had a well-equipped forest where we could run long enough routes, the long-awaited heat came to Moscow, and the enthusiasm of Letovo's students and teachers is always in abundance.

Warm-up before the start was held by a special guest of the race Vladimir Voloshin - co-founder of international triathlon competitions IRONSTAR and running festival ROSA RUN, four-time IRONMAN, finisher of 16 marathons and 33 half-marathons in Russia and abroad.

And here is the first start at a distance of 3 kilometers. The school principal Mikhail Mokrinsky fired the starting pistol, and after a lap around the school stadium the runners went into the forest. But it was not long before the leaders came to the finish line 13 minutes later. By the way, Vladimir Voloshin ran the distance together with the students from Letovo. Of course, not to compete with anyone, but to set the right pace for one of the participants of the race.

The 5 kilometers distance race was made more spectacular by the thunderstorm. Not only the runners should be praised for their endurance but also the volunteers on the course and at the finish line. Not everyone can cheer the runners on in the pouring rain!

All the finishers received medals of unique Letovo design, which were made by our students at the school's Fablab. For some of the runners, the May cross-country race was their first ever run, for some it was just another one, some easily outran all their peers, and some may not have had an outstanding time but overcame their insecurities. The main thing is that the first race of this scale turned out to be a real drive for Letovo. We are sure that there are a lot of bright and mass sports events ahead of the school. The founder of "Letovo" Vadim Moshkovich said about it as well – by the way, he, setting a good example for Letovo students, ran both distances of the race!

Congratulations to all the winners and participants of the race, its volunteers and organizers – LETOVO Department of Physical Education and Health. Let's keep running!
