It’s a holiday celebrated annually in Russia’s Yamal-Nenets region in the Arctic.

For the indigenous nomadic Nenets people, Reindeer Herders’ Day offers a chance to show their prowess in wrestling, high jumps and other traditional local sports, but, above all, in reindeer races. Some participants traveled hundreds of kilometers (miles) across the frozen tundra to attend the competition in the northern Siberian region, which has more than half of its territory above the Arctic Circle.

Nadym, where the races were held, is a city 2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles) northeast of Moscow.

This year, when the holiday was celebrated for the 20th time, dozens of reindeer-driven sleds took part in the race. The most coveted prize is a snowmobile — the best means of transportation in the frigid region.

There are about 40,000 Nenets living in the Arctic region and many work in traditional reindeer herding.

这是一个每年在俄罗斯北部亚马尔-涅涅茨地区的节日。

这个节日给游牧涅涅茨驯鹿牧民提供了一个机会来显示他们在摔跤,跳高和其他传统的运动能力,但最重要还是驯鹿比赛。一些参赛者会在数百公里之外的冻土带前来参加在北西伯利亚地区的竞争,其中有超过一半是从北极赶来。

节日举办的地点是俄罗斯的纳德姆城,那里是一个里莫斯科东北部2500公里的城市。

2015年是第二十届驯鹿牧民节,数十架驯鹿雪橇参加了比赛。最令人垂涎的奖项是一个高寒地区专用雪橇,它是驯鹿牧民们最需要的交通工具。

如今又大概40000涅涅茨人生活在北极圈内,仍然进行着放牧驯鹿等许多相关工作。
