Revival of tradition

March 25 in Shiryaevo took place the "Samarskaya Luka - 2018" ski race.

These competitions were held in 1997 for the first time. A lot of people were gathered at this event every year. But it was stopped for several years.

This spring, on the initiative of the National park, the organizers decided to revive a good ski tradition. The event gathered 110 sportsmen from the Samara region.  Participants chose distances of 5, 10 or 20 km in accordance with the level of physical training.

The mayor of Zhigulevsk Vladimir Klassen and the director of the National Park "Samarskaya Luka" Alexandr Gubernatorov came out with a salutatory speech to participants and spectators.

After finishing, the winners rose up to the podium, where they were awarded cups, medals and diplomas. All were satisfied with the high level of organization and preparation of the ski routes.

The competitions ended, but the ski tracks remained for everyone, who want to ski.
