"Our city set a record by the number of registered participants. Applications were submitted by more than 3,5 thousand people, this is the second indicator for the country after St. Petersburg. This suggests that sport and healthy lifestyle are becoming increasingly popular in the society. We are sure that next year the number of participants of our marathon will even increase", says the Executive Manager of the Bashkir branch of the Sberbank Marat Mansurov.
By the good tradition before the marathon, Sberbank presented our city a social and sporting facility. This year, Ufa received a brand new modern bike parking lot.
