On September, 23 the "Luzhniki" sports complex hosted the most numerous race in Russia – Absolut Moscow Marathon. More than 30 thousand people came to the start.
At the marathon Russian anti-doping Agency "RUSADA" held an educational "Play True" quiz, where everyone could take part and get a souvenir for the correct answers. RUSADA have developed a special anti-doping leaflet for the Moscow marathon participants. Besides anti-doping rules it refers to the dangers of the use and health effects of various stimulants and steroids.
RUSADA plans to cooperate not only with the Moscow marathon, but also with the organizers of other major mass races, which take place in other cities of Russia to create and develop a culture of "clean sport" not only among elite athletes, but also among amateur athletes.
