ALROSA

May 18, 2004

6500-km diamond supermarathon race

On 29 March, 2004 a marathon race dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Russian diamond industry started out from the ALROSA Moscow office for the mining town of Udachny in Yakutia. It was initiated by Vladimir Gregul, a mechanic at No. 2 Motor Depot of the ALROSA Udachny Division and a marathon racing enthusiast with 20-years of experience.

Today the marathon runners Vladimir Gregul and Alexander Glebov crossed the boundary line dividing the Omsk and Novosibirsk Regions and are approaching the town of Tatarsk. By now Alexander Glebov has covered the distance of 2685 km, the distance covered by Vladimir Gregul is 2400 km because of his inability to run due to a minor ailment. Now he is back on the distance again.

The weather so far has been favorable, with no rain. However, it can be very hot in the afternoon – up to 400 C. In the Kurgan Region the marathoners had to make their way through a zone of smoke from forest fires resulting from the heat. It turned out a serious obstacle. They were about to change route, however on further consideration it was decided to move ahead across the Tumen, Omsk and Novosibirsk Regions.

This marathon is a remarkable event in sports, which has been made possible thanks to sponsor support by Russia’s leading diamond miner ALROSA.
