On September 18th, the second annual Legends Race will take place in Raubichi. The biathlon will feature 20 to 30 sportsmen from around Europe, including Olympic medalists and world champions, competing in mass-start and mixed-relay racing.
The first and the main reason to buy a ticket to the event is, of course, the star-studded participants of the Race. The biathletes coming to Raubichi include the winners of 6 Big Crystal Globes, 27 Olympic golds 85 World Champion titles – a real hall of biathlon fame!
The guests of the event will decide between three Olympic medalists to cheer on: Alexandra Popova, Sergei Novikov, and Aleksy Aydarov. Last year’s winners, Florence Baverel-Robert from France and Frode Andresen from Norway, will also be in attendance.

Besides watching the race itself, guests can try out curling, mini golf, archery, skateboarding, roller skating, table football, air hockey and exercise in the work-out area. Children will almost certainly enjoy trampolines, a mega-maze and other fun activities.
A “Belarusian Lounge” located near the entrance, will acquaint guests with Belarusian culture, crafts and cuisine. For those interesting in trying out the sport, a shooting range with air rifles will be open, as well as a sports area for children.
The money from ticket sales will go for a good cause: it will be donated to children’s hospital in Gomel region, where children affected by the Chernobyl accident are treated.
The famous Belarusian biathlete and the host of the race Darya Domracheva will probably not be present at the event, but she announced a contest for the best poster. The fan whose poster is the brightest one, will get a special prize from Darya.
