In Radegast carrier from Olomouc, teamwork is the winner

18.7.2010 Radegast

“The Radegast carrier from Beskydy competition is for real men who want to surpass their own limits and who want to experience something different. Every team that makes it to the finish line, wins,” further explained the Manager of the Radegast brand, Pavel Kmínek

Even though this competition does not dwell on who reaches the finish first, the fastest team’s time was impressive. Team Šikulové completed the 5-kilometre track with steep inclines in 00:55:25. For their effort, members of the team took home 240 Radegast beers.

The team of hockey players from Olomouc, consisting of Jakub Bartoň and Tomáš Zbořil, did not get lost in the large number of competitors. “Jakub and I, we had great fun and we did it in good time too. It is clear that the summer training on dry land did its job,” Tomáš Zbořil commented the competition with a smile.

The fans were entertained both at the start and at the finish by a fun programme consisting of carriers, jumping boots, lifting of kegs, trapeze acrobats, and archery. Of course good food and especially correctly chilled Radegast was there as well.

“Just like with the Radegast carrier from Beskydy at the end of June in Ostravice, places in the Radegast carrier from Olomouc competition were in high demand. On July 31th, we will also take part in the Radegast carrier from Zlín at Luková by Zlín. Those interested can register at” added P. Kmínek.
