The enthusiasts competed on a 2.1km route where they had to fight various obstacles and own weaknesses.

The brave ones crawled under the barbed wire, climbed the walls and armored troop-carriers, waded with sacks on their shoulders to prove themselves they can do it.

Improvised shots and water explosions made the atmosphere of the competition close to real.

Three hundred of the runners were children, the youngest were just four years old.
