    A group of healthy lifestyle supporters from Russia's Irkutsk has celebrated a "walrus day" by jogging in -24C wearing only swimsuits.

    The activists are trying to draw attention to a healthy lifestyle. They jogged along a boulevard in Irkutsk, had cold water procedures, had a photo session and then left for the neighboring city of Angarsk, where they planned to run another two kilometers.

    This crazy activity requires thorough preparations, including playing sports and careful health checks.
