Over 50 employees of Perm Engines ran the International marathon

September 9 was marked with the completion of the second Perm international marathon. This year the participants could choose four distances: 42, 21, 10 and 3 kilometers. Over 50 sportsmen were the engine builders

 

This year the company team comprised twice as many participants as the last year, i.e 58 people. 16 of them ran a distance of 3 kilometers, 20 took part in the race of 10 km, 13 run 21 km, and 9 the strongest ones have endured the distance of 42 km!

The marathoners ran along the main streets of the city – Lenin street, Komsomolsky prospect, Sibirskaya street. For each participant to finish the marathon was a victory in itself. Therefore everyone got the medal with no exceptions.

The cell-leader of the machining-welding shop – Dmitry Dozmorov ran 10 km with a result of 1 hour 14 minutes:

The marathon was organized up to the highest standards! Our region does not host many events of such a scale. This was the first time for me so I set for myself quite a simple task: to start and finish 10 km, I did not try to win the time. Although quite tired I really liked it and the medal added to the positive spirit! Next year I will participate again and try to compete for the result!

 

Olga Krasavina, HR Director of JSC UEC-Perm Engines:

 

This is the first sport event of such a level I have ever taken part in. On the one hand the decision to run the marathon was spontaneous and even adventurous – as I do not regularly jog. But on the other hand it was a good chance to test myself. The distance of thee kilometers turned out to be very comfortable I ran it with pleasure. As a result – the reward was not only a medal but a lot of positive emotions and self-confidence. I am very pleased to see that the number of participants from Perm Engines is growing every year which means that more and more people who work in the company are striving for a healthy lifestyle.
