BEITEN BURKHARDT lawyers took part in Legal Run 2017
Moscow, 22 May 2017 – The main sporting event of the legal community, the International Charity Run “Legal Run”, was held on 20 May 2017. Since 2014 Legal Run has been uniting lawyers from around the world in support of the patients of the charitable foundation “Give Life” and several regional funds.
This year the Run had an unprecedented global reach, from Blagoveshchensk to London: official runs will take place over the course of one week, from 20-27 May, in 14 cities. Runs were held on 20 May in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Rostov-na-Donu, Kazan, Tomsk and Blagoveshchensk, another will be held in London on 24 May, and on 27 May the baton will be passed to Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Voronezh and Krasnodar. At least 5,000 lawyers in 14 cities are expected to participate in the official runs of Legal Run 2017.
For the first time Sokolniki Park, which covers an area of 515.7 ha (the largest park in Moscow, and one of the largest parks in Europe), was the site of the Moscow run. The routes of the 5K and 10K runs passed through the green surroundings of the park, along the wide avenues and clearings that have become popular among running enthusiasts, as well as around the famous central circle.

Alexander Bezborodov, Anna Klimova, Bilgeis Mamedova, Nikolay Potanin, Nikita Rodionov, Diana Maximova, Tatiana Smirnova, Maxim Yuzhakov, Artem Nikolaev, Egor Repin, Ekaterina Teteryuk and Yulia Toksarova participated in the run as a true corporate team.
