Participation in such kind of event is fun and test for most of us. It is good that a certain idea which can light participants and unite them by one common target exists in the team. The forthcoming competition includes speed passing of three different sections. Some runs the route fully, others participate in the relay form like me and my colleagues. Participants of the marathon depend on each other, you feel responsibility to the team, significance of passing of own section. My part of route is cycle race».
Alexander P. (running race of 5km):
«I go to the Ironstar completion at the first time but I used to run for long distances – I have participated in the charitable running race with other participants from our company in December of last year. I will run 5 km in the triathlon, I vigorously prepare for it. I got to trainings two times per week and I engaged with the coach. Benefit from sport training is motivation for me. Participation in the relay for me is the opportunity for own test».

Rustam Yuldashev (triathlon of 113km)
Reporter: Rustam, you have chosen the extended route, namely passing of three sections of the marathon. What motivates you?
Rustam: I do sports – it brings me pleasure and changes all life. Person should periodically change something in own life. When you do sports you change own schedule due to this. Setting of targets distinguishes sport from fitness. When you do sports consciously you put the final target, for example, “to run the required mileage”, “to swim distance during certain time period” – you go to that target.
Reporter: Did you prepare to the forthcoming marathon?
R: Yes, I go to training five times per week.

Reporter: How do you treat that colleagues also participate with you in the marathon?
R: Positively. I am supporter of sport and consider that the more people pay attention to it the better
