21 May, the Glorax Life sports team ran the distance on the picturesque streets of Sergiyev Posad. Staff members and sportsmen of a major sports complex “Olymp” (belongs to Glorax Group, under Andrey Birzhin management) in Khotkovo also took part in this event.
The race started at the walls of The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra which is the main sight of the city. The major street was blocked off so that the runners could safely enjoy the picturesque views of the ancient center. The distance was divided into several intervals: 1, 5, 10 and 21 km, so that everyone could choose the convenient variant. The “Titan” marathon was organized by Russian triathlon Federation; nearly 50 people (ages 3-72) participated in the run. All the runners were awarded with memorable medals that were designed with Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra on the bright blue-sky background.
Glorax Life team successfully ran the distance. Our sportsmen regularly take part in the most interesting and mass marathons and try to popularize active and healthy lifestyle. And the “Titan” race in Sergiyev Posad was not chosen randomly.
“In Glorax Group company there are a lot of employees from Sergiyev Posad region, – tells us Aleksander Andrianov, CEO Glorax Group and Glorax Life team leader. – I also come from these places. Glorax Group construction company is now building a housing complex “Olymp” that is located in Khotkovo. There you can also find our fitness center “Olymp” due to which a whole generation of young sportsmen has grown up; they often take part in regional and all-Russia competitions. So, as you can see, Glorax Group history is closely connected with sport, active ambitious people and the native district. We think that healthy lifestyle influences on our employees’ progress at work; we try to support and motivate everyone who is keen on sport and we do involve more and more people in our ranks”.
