urban characteristics with the significant reliability during long trips.<br />

No half marathon can do without pacemakers,<br />

that is, athletes who set a certain pace<br />

of running. Participants of the Grand Prix<br />

Lviv Half Marathon <strong>2017</strong> will be able to<br />

adjust their performance with the help of<br />

pacemakers, who will overcome the half<br />

marathon with the following time in hours:<br />

• 1:30<br />

• 1:40<br />

• 1:50<br />

• 2:00<br />

For every time frame there will be<br />

2 pacemakers who will be specially<br />

“marked” in order not to get lost in<br />

the crowd. In the starting corridor<br />

they will be easily recognized by<br />

balloons with the mark of the finishing<br />

time which will fly over their heads.<br />

A team of four people participates in the relay.<br />

Three participants overcome the course<br />

of 5 km, and the fourth, the finisher —<br />

6.0675 km. Each team gets ONE timecapturing<br />

chip. The chip is attached to<br />

the leg of the participant and is handed<br />

over at the relay transmission station.<br />

We recomm<strong>en</strong>d: to save time, it is better<br />

for the participant waiting to start his/her<br />

stage to be the one to take off the chip from<br />

the leg of the participant who just arrived<br />

and attach it to his/her own leg, and start<br />

his/her stage. Each team receives the chip<br />

along with the starter’s package (one per<br />

team) on October 28 at the Sport Expo<br />

UA exhibition. The start of the relay race<br />

will begin at 09:00 a.m. with an individual<br />

race of 21.0975 km. Relay transmission<br />

stations are located at 5, 10 and 15 km.<br />


• The first participant goes to<br />

the start with a relay strap;<br />

• Team members are not allowed<br />

to change the bib numbers;<br />

• Relay team members run in<br />

the order stated at registration.<br />

“WINNERS”<br />

They gain victory; each of us has an<br />

opportunity to help them. Overcome<br />

the charity course “Winners” and help ATO<br />

veterans to acquire new sports prostheses<br />

and help in rehabilitation after injuries.<br />

Today you can not only make the first<br />

step to great courses, but also give a start<br />

to a new stage in the life of war victims.<br />

respectively. They are still effectively<br />

protected from external influ<strong>en</strong>ce<br />

mechanical filtration in the process<br />

betwe<strong>en</strong> its production and bottling.<br />
