The team PAAZ - participants of the Half Marathon
On September 2, 2018, the Poltava International Half Marathon was held for the fourth time in the very center of the cultural capital. Last year, more than a thousand athletes (from Poltava, Kiev, Odessa, Lvov and other cities of Ukraine, as well as China, Turkey, Italy and the USA) tested their strength in various disciplines. This year, there were more than three and a half thousand participants - energetic and positive people who connected their lives with sports! In addition to the main discipline of 21 kilometers, there were also races at a distance of 10 and 3 km, children's races. The traditional highlight of the half marathon was the color race. The event covered not only professional athletes, but also many lovers of bright and dynamic relaxation!
The Poltava Automobile Unit Plant also did not stand aside this event - our athletes took part in the races, setting perhaps one of the most numerous teams.
Training began at the Vorskla stadium under the guidance of a coach back in July last year. As a result, 26 people took the distance (21 adults and 5 children), of whom nine took part in the marathon for 21 kilometers, six chose a 10-kilometer distance, the rest ran 3 kilometers, and the kilometer-children and 300-meter distances.
But the team of the Poltava Automobile Unit Plant does not plan to stop training. Every Tuesday at the Vorskla stadium we are glad to see new employees who want to join the team of the PAAZ marathon runners. We welcome everyone who is ready to run with us!
