Several mothers also lived with their aspirants, and all of them agreed that the young athletes are so "heated up" that in the morning they stick new plasters on the rubbed blisters and start fighting again. Thank you to the moms for your support, both by providing sufficient supplies of patches and by following, so that the competition and battle in the distance competitions in the "Strava" SWIM club is fair.

Although 125 participants had initially registered for the challenge, 87 completed the activities, among whom the battle for kilometers and the prize was also taking place. All 87 walked or ran a total of 3661.5 km.
