The team from Moldova was the largest one, it was presented by 40 participants.

The races were held at the traditional distances: “Race of Strength” — 5 km and “Race of Will” — 10 km, and “Night Race” — 3 km became a zest of the Odesa stage. Denys Nikulin from Dnipro won “Race of Will”, he covered 10 km and 25 obstacles with the result 1: 27: 48. Inna Kovalenko from Donetsk with the result 1:38:46 was the first in the women’s stage.

Taking into account the fierce heat that reached 40 degrees, already complicated courses with obstacles became a real endurance test for the participants of Race Nation.

Yuriy Pidlisnyi, the organizer of Race Nation, told about the peculiarities of the Odesa stage of the race: “We considered weather anomaly and prepared well for it: we installed additional hydration points all over the whole course where everyone could drink and refresh oneself. The sportsmen were provided with more than 5 thousand of bottles of water. About 100 volunteers, medical professionals, who were provided by the Maltese rescue service, worked through the course, as well as medical staff and 3 ambulances. The races that had to be held at the hottest time of the day were rescheduled to a later time”.

The winners of Race Nation were awarded with the prizes from the competition partners and had a lot of emotions and excitement!
