Glorax Life Team Takes Part in Moscow Half Marathon
On August 2, Moscow hosted a large-scale sporting event, Moscow Half Marathon, with a picturesque route along central embankments offering views of the capital’s iconic sights. Team members of Glorax Life (subsidiary of Andrei Birzhin’s Glorax Group) took part in the largest half marathon in the country, successfully covering the distance of 21.1 km.
This year, Moscow Half Marathon has once again become part of the All-Russian Half Marathon with a simultaneous start of Zabeg.RF: runners from dozens of Russian cities took part in the event together with Muscovites.
Alexander Ionov, a new member of Glorax Life team, also participated in the race and covered the distance in 1:56:32, saying, “Finally, runners can meet at the race and run the distance together. Still, nothing matches the euphoria of amateur races, you feel the support of your teammates and numerous participants, you admire the beauty of Moscow. For me, running is a great sport, because to do it all you need is a pair of good sneakers and the desire to participate. At the same time, involvement in the team stimulates us to show all the more significant results and set personal records.”
As a reminder, Glorax Life sports team was set up in October 2016. The team includes runners, triathletes, swimmers, powerlifters, bodybuilders and mountaineers who represent the team at various sports tournaments of Russian and international level. The team has won many awards and climbed three peaks (Montblanc, Kazbek and Elbrus). Glorax Group’s management supports the sports hobbies of its employees both organizationally and as a personal example, with CEO Alexander Andrianov being a member of the team.
