One of the most inspiring and difficult marathons in Russia is the Tropa Muzhestva, which means The Path of Courage. The participants have the choice to run either the 30 km (18 miles), 50 km (31 miles) or 100 km (62 miles) with a bag which can weigh either 5 or 10 kg (11 or 22 lbs). Rather than running in a stadium or on a track, participants of The Path of Courage must run in snow, swamps, dirt, and many other obstacles.
The race is a great opportunity to check you and your comrade's skills and endurance. The Path of Courage doesn't support the ideas of winning at all cost or rivalry, but proclaims the principles of winning together! and cooperation!
