MOSCOW, September 19 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow is hosting an athletic public entertainment, The Female Ten. Roughly five thousand are expected to gather, say gala organisers.

The information reached Novosti at a news conference. Addressing it was Ms. Pirkko Autio, manager for Russian-based programmes for Finland's Finpro Marketing Co. Today's event is its brainchild.

A first in a chain of similar galas in Finland gathered something in between two and three hundred women, while last spring's, the latest, 22 thousand, she said.

Leena Luhtanen, Finland's Transport and Communications Minister, is expected not merely to attend the race opening but even run in it, said Tarja Paivarinen of a commercial centre under the Finnish Embassy to Russia.

Finnish and Russian organisers of The Female Ten in Russia are equally sure it will develop into a regular arrangement.

Finland was spectacular success with its 21 Female Ten competitions. Moscow is copying its concept and patterns. Many European countries hold similar athletic events.

The athletes and visitors are offered a delightful, highly varied programme throughout the day, with fitness convents, sport and recreation fashion shows, and lotteries. Top-notch entertainers and dance companies are performing.
