The corporate running team Glorax Life (a part of Andrei Birzhin’s group of companies) participated in the country’s largest 21 km run – Moscow half marathon. On May 19, hundreds of thousands of joggers and supporters of a healthy lifestyle from 20 cities of Russia ran their distance along a picturesque route in the renovated “Luzhniki”.
This year, organizers offered three distances – 5, 10 and 21.1 km. The members of the Glorax Life team, among whom were the first time runners, successfully overcame the selected distances and received a huge charge of emotions for further sports achievements. The corporate team of Glorax Life every year takes part in the Moscow half-marathon and every year the number of participants grows. Now the race was attended by more than 40 employees of the Glorax Group companies.
“We see how our initiative to create a direction that unites employees who live in sports, travel, and impressions is growing stronger every day. Just a year ago, about 20 employees gathered for the running starts at the same time, now we are talking about a huge team – more than 40 people. All share emotions and immediately plan the next joint starts. The Glorax Group employees are truly charged, positive and motivated. We can only be proud of such a team,” – commented on the participation in the Moscow half marathon Alexander Andrianov, CEO of the Glorax Group.
