The competition will be open to the region's student and non-student athletes. This year's winter sports championship is expected to draw more than 100 student participants.
Participation is free, but athletes will be required to put a deposit of $14 or their passport down--returned at the end of the games--for the starting number.
To compete, students must be at least 17 years-old and must possess both a helmet and an insurance policy against emergencies. Applications can be complete online at http://urfu.ru/sport/
