I am glad that today a healthy lifestyle is becoming fashionable among young people, the number of young men and women interested in sports is growing rapidly.

At the championship, we saw in what excellent shape the employees of the security forces of Uzbekistan are and this motivates all of us to train even more, achieve success not only at work, but also in sports, become stronger, faster and more enduring.

In addition to the military, 90 invited participants took part in the first stage of the championship outside the competition program - these are members of four running clubs and communities of the country, veterans of the armed forces and, of course, employees of the AKFA Group. The company's specialists were able to easily overcome the distance in the allotted time.
