Dear friends!

Finally we are at the cusp of a new season on Elbrus!

So, we have organized a big party dedicated to the beginning of the season “Elbrus 2014”. Our party will take place on 9, May on the terrace of a well-known hospitable hotel “Povorot”.

You will be able not only to meet your friends who you haven't seen for a long time but also enjoy the songs of a famous Italian singer Giampaolo Spatola from sunny Sicilia.

This year we open our season on Victory Day. On this day we more than ever realize the value of friendship, mutual understanding, a peaceful sky over our heads and that it is not money but love rules the world. Our guest Giampaolo Spatola often says: our world is fragile but at the same time indestructible if all the nations understand each other, if there is an advertence and tolerance. The main topics of Giampaolo's songs are Peace and Love which band people together regardless of their nationality, language, skin color, faith or wealth.

Let us appreciate peace and love and carry these light feelings through all the season.

We love you. We are waiting for you. You are welcome to our party.

At the May holidays in the Elbrus region is crowded:

Red Fox Company and Russian Mountaineering Federation with the support of Emercom of Russia, Government of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria and International Skyrunning Federation conduct VI International festival Red Fox Elbrus Race on May 3-11, 2014.

The competition will take place on the Elbrus peak, the highest top of the Europe and the most popular Russian mountain region.

For several years the Festival Red Fox Elbrus Race with two races of the Russian National Series (Elbrus Vertical SkyMarathon® and Elbrus Vertical Kilometer®) is one of the central events in the skyrunning world. Elbrus Vertical Kilometer® and Elbrus Vertical SkyMarathon® were included in Skyrunner® World Series and the 50 World Ranking races of 2013 year. The best mountaineers, skiers and multisportsmen from all over the world come to participate in the Festival.

Last year the Red Fox Elbrus Race distinguished by the record established by the Italian skyrunner Marco Facchinelli in the main event of the Festival. The athlete overcame the very hard distance with height more than 3000 meters difference from Azau's glade to the West Elbrus Peak only in 3 hours 30 minutes. And the ordinary person needs not less than 1 day to carry out the same route.

But more than likely this record will be broken in the Festival Red Fox Elbrus Race 2014. Even now the desire to participate in the most high-altitude race of the world was expressed by many leaders of international skyrunning.

Today our group climbed to the top of Huayna Potosi (6088 m it seems).

Leaving the beaches of Titicaca, we quickly got to the base camp of Huayna Potosi . Base camp - it's very cozy hut , around which there is roam herds of llamas and alpacas .

But then there we had a few days before climbing . Easy walks, ice class, the ascent to the upper camp ... We were doing everything for acclimatization, and it went as best as possible . Although of course it was not always easy.

But in the end, today, our whole group was on top of this beautiful mountain, which has absolutely stunning crest.

We can not say that the ascent was simple. But we did it. And as a reward - in the evening in La Paz we celebrated his first victory.

Almost all members of the group Everest climbers from 7 Summits Club took part in the competition. The event was held on the system "each with each" to 3 sets. Games stretched for almost the whole day. Chief judge of competitions was Ivona Zadarnovska-Wingert from Poland (by the friendly nickname "merry Pole").

By the end of the competition day by scoring we identified leaders who again played each other for prizes. As a result, Vladislav Lachkarev from Siberian Irkutsk won first place, second place went to Irishman Derek Mahon, and third place – for charming Muscovite Natalia Matusowa.

Evening at the banquet table, the winner was awarded a prize - a bottle of expensive wine. Vladislav first wanted to retire with this bottle in his tent, but decided to split the prize between all team members. As Vlad said during a toast : "Better to be first in the base camp than on Everest a second ! "

Now, the team members are trained for the next competition - are preparing in billiards.
