|Avala Night SkyTrail, February 23rd
Believe or not, our first official race is coming back! Avala
It is time to take Perać's paths once again. Four years have been passed and we are preparing you a treat. The Night Sky Trail in the middle of winter – 11 km and 520 m of elevation gain, Saturday, February 23rd, 2019.
For the simple reason – there is more and more people who want to enter the skyrunning world and Avala is the best option. The concept of this race will be super interesting for more experienced runners, too. The trail will be completely marked by blinking lights and reflecting markers. At EACH junction there will be a volunteer.
The headlight beam, breath vapor and hard surface (frozen mud or snow). The start and finish line are at Čarapićev Brest (race office). The race for children is at 5 PM (one hour before the start of the main race).
The trail will have 3 control points and 1 refreshment point. Each competitor will have a sandwich and tea/coffee at the finish line.
