Lake Ice Race
«Lake Ice Race»is a trail (cross) race.
Race distances: 10 km and 20 km.
The first distance (10 km) is a flat one, it goes over the ice to Vera Island and back. The main difficulty is the unpredictable surface on the day of the start, it can be covered with knee-deep snow as well as icy. The route runs on the walkways, but the South Ural weather is fast-changing! Vera Island is a completely incredible place. It has been attracting people since prehistorical times. Here archaeologists found Neanderthal encampment aged from 60 to 100 thousand years, megalith constructions resembling Stonehenge, built approximately 6 thousand years ago, ancient stone mines and Old Believers’ monasteries of XIX century. It total it amounts to 50 archaeological monuments.Plus a few that are under the water. What people have been looking for on this plot of land remains a mystery. Maybe we can solve it?
The second distance (20 km) coincides with the lake part up to Vera Island, but then there is a cherry on top of this race waiting for you – the rapid climbing up the Zaozerny Ridge. The top is at a height of 687 meters above sea level.There is also a magnificent viewpoint, from where Lake Turgoyak is clearly visible. Although the Zaozerny Ridge is not high, it is beautiful for its cliffs and views. It seems to cover Lake Turgoyak from the west, bending it round like a horseshoe. From the ZaozernyRidge you can distinguish Vera Island and the MyhorinskayaKurya bay on the leftof it. Turgoyak Village and the town of Miass are clearly visible. On the other side of the ridge, to the northwest, you can notice some peaks of Taganay. The race also runs on walkways, the main difficulty is climbing the steep hill and facing the sharp wind on the top.
