Українські трейлові забіги сертифіковані ITRA

Ukrainian trail races are certified by ITRA

During one running season in Ukraine, there is a fairly large number of trail races, the company organises trail races in different parts of the country: from Lviv to Kharkiv, from Kyiv to Odesa. Trail races take place in different locations: in the Carpathian Mountains, parks, nature reserves or any other area where there is off-road terrain. But among all this diversity of Ukrainian mountain, urban, winter and desert trails, there is a small group of such races that distinguish them from others and make participation more interesting. The peculiarity lies in the complexity of the course and the availability of ITRA points.
