Rosa Run results. Race at height
From 4 to 7 May, the Rosa Khutor mountain resort hosted the international running festival ROSA RUN, which brought together more than 1,000 participants from 55 cities of Russia. The festival program included four days of sports and entertainment activities.
Day one. “Vertical” kilometer ROSA PEAK - a race up the Rosa Peak mountain with a climb up to 600 meters. Participants had to climb as high as possible in 60 minutes. Almost half of the start-ups managed to reach this mark before the signal of the finishing gun sounded.
The first was a member of the Russian national mountain running team Sergey Perelygin (Balakovo, Saratov region) with the result 36.54.
Among the girls, the MSMK in track and field athletics Olga Tarantinova (Shchelkovo, Moscow region) came to the finish first with a result of 38.09. Here is what the athlete herself says about her victory: Very lucky with the weather - the most ideal for such races. I thought about the distance layout in advance, because I had run the ROSA PEAK vertical race days earlier. It was quite comfortable to run uphill, but from the mountain I had to endure, and it turned out to be especially difficult after the descent to run along the plain, it's good that this section was only two kilometers. I'm happy with the result.
Day two. ROSA QUEST is a team race with tasks, in which 26 teams of 10 people each took part. Participants passed 20 points where they had to perform both sports exercises and tasks for ingenuity. The winning team was determined not by the speed of the track, but by the total number of points scored.
Day three. ROSA CARNIVAL - a 3 km costume race for everyone. This race became a real holiday for the participants and guests of Rosa Khutor. 400 characters and creatures ran along the embankments of the resort, surprising them with bright and original images. Among the owners of the best costumes, the organizers, in particular, noted the Icicle Man, the Pope, a team of doctors and a team of mountains. The youngest participant in the carnival is only three months old.
Day four. The main event of the festival was the most difficult and incredibly beautiful mountain half marathon ROSA 777, the route of which began on the Rosa Khutor embankment and went into the mountains up to Rosa Plato itself. The climb was over 700 meters.
It took the winner a little over an hour to overcome this difficult track. Dmitry Safronov (Moscow), marathon and long-distance runner, bronze medalist of the 2010 European Championship finished in 1 hour 11 minutes 11 seconds.
Functionally, I was ready for the mountain half marathon, the pulse did not go off scale, but the strength training was not enough for a better result, the legs below were no longer running. The goal for the future is to run 10 kilometers at the Russian track and field athletics championship, - Dmitry noted.
Among the girls, the athlete of the Russian national team Elena Sedova (Novosibirsk) - 1: 20.24 became the fastest.
