Russian railway workers celebrate professional holiday with charity race

RU EN

On 6 August 2017, a charity race called "Reaching the Goal" was held across Russia to mark the Day of Railway Workers.

This year, all 16 railway branches of OJSC Russian Railways supported the sporting event.

The greatest number of runners to take part in the race was in Moscow, with over 7,000 people, but thousands also turned out in Khabarovsk, St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, Murmansk, Saratov, Yaroslavl, Rostov-on-Don and Voronezh.

Children also participated. Young runners aged 6 to 13 had to cover a distance of 500 m, while competitors over 10 took part in an individual start over 1520 m.

The event also gave runners the chance to go for the classic distances of 5 or 10 km.

The runners who finished first, second and third in each category received diplomas and prizes and everyone who finished received a commemorative medal.

This second charity race under the name "Reaching the Goal" was organised by the Life Line Foundation.

The general partner of the event is traditionally JSC Russian Railways.

All funds raised during the race were donated to children suffering from seriously illnesses.
