By tradition, lovers of an active lifestyle have gathered for an event which participants had been several generations! Last Saturday, the team of USUE athletes competed for the title of the fastest. The combined relay race for the prize of the newspaper "Evening Yekaterinburg" this year was held for 60 times. Together with students of USUE, 130 other city teams toed the starting line. Athletes demonstrated endurance on different stages of the competition: track and field, cross-country skiing, skating, and cycling. The organizers split the entire distance into 12 male and female stages.
The route of the city relay began on October Square and passed along the central streets of the city. The participants of the marathon, representing USUE, ran in the strongest, third round. Main opponents of USUE students were athletes from RSVPU (winners of last year's relay) and UralSUPC (silver medalists race 59). Athletes noted that cool weather did not cool sports excitement.
By the way, though on the running route there were participants who chose winter sports, our athletes preferred traditional track-and-field athletics to skiing and skating. According to the organizers, the sports festival again became a kind of "relay baton", which the participants of the competitions transferred from summer sports to winter sports.
