Strong race in Latvia
In previous years, the race for extremes was held in early May (it was timed to celebrate the anniversary of the restoration of Independence of Latvia), now it took place on May 27-28.This is due to the fact that in early May in Latvia it is rather cold (as a rule, the air temperature does not exceed + 4 ... + 8 degrees) and the weather was scaring many potential applicants. This time it was sunny and warm (about +20 degrees).
Stipro skrējiens - overcoming an obstacle course for a while. If in the early years there was a general start for everyone, now the tracks are divided according to the level of complexity and length, there are personal and team, male and female, professional and amateur offsets, tracks for adults and children. In addition, this year for the first time the competition was held not one day, but two.
In each of the days were scheduled starts at 5, 7, 9 and 12 km. The choice of this format is connected with the fact that the organizers could, as far as possible, better maintain the track in order to increase the pauses between the participants, as well as reduce the queues around the obstacles. Beginners are offered a distance of 5 km, a distance of 9 km is considered traditional, and 12 km is for the elite and the pro. Also for the third year in a row, organized extreme races for children from one year to 12 years.
According to the organizers, on the first day of the Run of Strong, the number of participants was about 2,500.Of these, about 600 participants started in the easiest version of the race - “Izlūku skrējienā” (“Race for the scouts”), and the most popular was the group race with the participation of 403 teams - they needed to overcome 9 kilometers and 33 types of obstacles.
The winners in the “Izlūku skrējiena” were: Laura Rieksta among women, Sandis Kijlo among men. Among the teams, the fastest was “VP Latgale”.
