The racing track of the Kamchatka dog race "Beringia" is the longest in the world. It is more than 2 thousand kilometers.

The route of "Beringia" is laid from the Kamchatka village Milkovo to the Chukotka village Markovo. 

Meanwhile, on the occasion of the start of the race, about 7 thousand people gathered at the departure point for mushers and their teams. 

In total, 30 athletes take part in this sporting event. At the initial stage, selection takes place on a short 10-kilometer parkour. During the competition, the future leaders of the big race are determined. It is noteworthy that the race is quite popular, since among the competitors you can find a native of Moscow and even one Polish citizen. The first competition lasted 26 minutes. As a result, the victory went to A. Semashkin from Petrovavlovsk. The second place was unexpectedly taken by a woman - N. Orekhova, and the Moscow musher V. Demchenko came third to the finish line. The organizers of the sporting event provided prizes for the winners - including puppies of the northern husky breed. 

Their pets had to go through a sprint distance of ten kilometers. Most of the participants represented eight municipalities of the Kamchatka Territory, but one participant in the race came from Moscow, another from Poland. Twenty-six minutes later the winner was determined. 

The multi-thousand-kilometer race starts on March 11, not far from the village of Milkovo, where they are already preparing to welcome guests. The program of the upcoming event includes a concert. It is possible that at this - the most difficult stage - of the selection, the team from Anadyr will also join the participants of the competition, which was late due to force majeure for the start of the sporting event.
