At the end of the season: a new race from the Moscow Marathon team
On October 7, 2017, a new race will take place from the Promsvyazbank team of the Moscow Marathon - the Lisya Gora cross. The name of the new start was not chosen by chance, it is connected with the history of the place of the cross - the race will be held on a dry meadow in the Bitsevsky forest, where foxes used to be.
Starting this year, in addition to For the mass road races, the organizers will organize two cross-country races - in autumn and spring. Cross-country is a cross-country run.
