In Vladivostok has passed the fourth international marathon (Marathon Galaxy Vladivostok). The competition, which was held at various distances involved more than three hundred servicemen and employees of the Vladivostok garrison and the families of the sailors of the Pacific fleet.

Vladivostok marathon races unique complex terrain at distances. Numerous descents and ascents, one of them with a length of 900 meters and a slope of more than 45 degrees, seriously complicate the overcoming of the trails on the island of Russian, and two cable-stayed bridges.

Despite the difficulties many military personnel of the Pacific fleet showed good results and entered the top ten winners along with professional athletes from fifteen countries.

It should be noted that more than two hundred of the Pacific fleet also took part in the organization of the marathon: formed the start and finish towns, ensured safety of participants on the distances.
