Minsk half-marathon - sports tradition of cadets

Annually at the distance of the Minsk half-marathon cadets of the faculty of investigators of the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs meet the holiday of the Belarusian capital.

Good physical training is one of the mandatory requirements for each future officer.It is not only the discipline "Professionally-applied physical training" that helps to keep themselves in shape, but also active rest.Participation in sports events and promotions is a cadet initiative.It is not surprising that on 9th of September - on the 951st anniversary of the city - the cadets ran the Minsk half-marathon.Thousands of participants, dozens of countries –it was the atmosphere in which the race was held.

Cadets participated in team and individual competitions. For example, a fourth year student Ilya Klachok went to a distance of 21.1 km, where more than three thousand people fled.The result of the guy is not the first, but very worthy in such a mass race –he finished as 357th!

"The Minsk half-marathon - an opportunity not only to test your strength, but also to make many new acquaintances," - the cadet shared his impressions. - "The atmosphere of the event is extraordinary, because people of different ages and professions fled around - rescuer of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and a miner, a doctor and a clown.Someone ran in costumes - here's a magician, there's a bear...Each, probably, set a goal and with all his strength sought to achieve it".
