Over 3,000 half-naked men ran through Minsk streets on 23 February to celebrate Defender of the Fatherland Day.
Wearing only leggings, shorts or pants the participants ran one or three kilometer distance to a great delight of random passers-by.
The main condition of the race was a naked torso, luckily for the participants of this year, winter 2020 was pretty mild.
Some of them tried to surprise the onlookers with their costumes: painted their bodies, ran with a glass of beer, donned a cap with earflaps and even kilts.
While the guys challenged their stamina and strength, their supporters met their heroes at the finish line with medals and kisses.
