In the Elbrus region, the mining units completed a six-day 100-kilometer march around Elbrus, thereby completing the second stage of the Elbrus Ring competition of ARMI-2021.

During the march, the contestants overcame six passes and completed 7 out of 15 special tasks. Then all the teams went down to the Terskol Mountain Training and Survival Center and thus closed the 100-kilometer Elbrus Ring. It was from here on August 26 that the participants of the competition started the route around the highest peak in Europe.

“All the participants of the march successfully coped with special tasks during the passage of the 100-kilometer route, all returned to the base camp without injuries,” said the chief judge of the competition, Colonel Ukrainets, after the finish.

For reference:

Teams from Russia, China, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Uzbekistan and India are taking part in the competition. The servicemen of Armenia and South Ossetia will perform only some of the special tasks of the competition, outside the category.

The organizer of the Elbrus Ring competition is the Physical Training and Sports Department of the RF Armed Forces. These competitions have a military-applied focus and have been held on an international scale since 2016.
