Natalya Seraya about the Space Marathon
The program of the event started at 8 am. That year, the marathon trials took place as part of the City Day celebration and became a part of its cultural program. The marathon was opened with demonstration performances of teams in various sports with the participation of world champions and Olympians. Guests and participants were greeted by the fiery rhythms of the Bara Bang. The youngest athletes were the first to overcome the 500-meter distance. Then the school-goers ran 1 km. 150 people wished to overcome the longest trial of 42 km.
“The track started in the city, we were running along the blocked highway, and continued along the park road, immersed in the greenery of the forest, we could smell mushrooms … What else could a runner dream of? In my opinion, it was the most organized marathon in my history according to trial conditions,” Natalya Seraya characterizes the track.
Volunteers provided support to the athletes throughout the distance. A great number of food stops with water, fruit and professional food for athletes – sports gels were organized: “I would like to say special words of gratitude to the caring volunteers surrounding us with due attention throughout the whole way. The organizers took care of food and its presentation. Very handy large glasses on food tables also served as containers for various drinks and chopped fruit. As a rule, during marathons, the feeling of hunger prevails, in Korolev there prevailed the feeling of satiety. Moreover, even after the finish line, everyone was handed a bottle of water, a can of non-alcoholic beer and a serving of hot pasta”.
In addition, among other positive organizational aspects of the marathon, Natalya Aleksandrovna noted the presence of electronic chips for results recording, which were provided to the athletes at the start along with the number. The chips recorded the results after crossing each control mark, and at the finish line, the runner received an SMS with the data of his trial results. “In general, we managed to create a real holiday for marathon runners in Korolev,” Natalya concludes.
