“It is gratifying that this wonderful initiative, born over 40 years ago, has become a large-scale nationwide project. Such events – well organised, accessible to all and bringing together a huge number of participants – are in demand at all times. They strengthen one's character, promote the values of a healthy lifestyle and foster balanced individuals. And, of course, Lyzhnya Rossii is a great opportunity to gauge your strength, compete with novice athletes and experienced professionals, and be a part of a large, cohesive team.
