The route will retrace the Great Russian Northern Route, which is more than 1,000 years old. According to Interfax, the distance of the route will be 1,500 kilometers.

“We should make this journey a prayerful path for pilgrims. Second, this journey will be important for those who lead a healthy lifestyle,” said a participant in the procession, the traveler Dmitry Sagalako.

He stated that when he was on the Solovetsky islands, he discovered that this path existed and that a large number of people had walked it in order to change their lives.

Approximately forty people will start on the procession from Moscow, which will cover seven Russian regions. On the way to the monastery, other participants, made up of local residents, will join the main group.
