The National park “Samarskaya Luka”
On January 12, representatives of the race Committee had a session with Aleksandr Gubernatorov, the director of the National Park “Samarskaya Luka”, Valery Ovchinnikov, the deputy director of land utilization protection and environmental security, and the chief of recreation and tourism Vladimir Telegin on organization of the track. The chief of the track Sergey Semenov trashed out a subject of road preparation and the length of a route “Volga Quest 2017”.
As a result, strong partnerships between the race Committee and the leadership of the National park were established at the meeting. The organizers of “Volga Quest 2017” put an emphasis on the fact that the National park “Samarskaya Luka” supports and maintains realization of the Year of ecology in Russia.
Our partnership with the National park “Samarskaya Luka” has developed since 2012-2013, when “Zhigulevskaya dog-sledding trip” was organized. During 2014-2015-2016 years the park`s leadership has been supporting all the projects of “Volga Quest”, so it is one of the main partners of the race in Samara region.
In 2017, the National park “Samarskaya Luka” brings in a prize for racers of the “Middle Volga”. The winner in the nomination “Middle Volga” (the middle of the track) will get great presents from the park`s leadership, such as, for example, a big barrel of sweet honey.
