The route takes place on the Obolon river Promenade, flat relief, no set altitude.
From the starting point in front of Holy Protection Cathedral run along the left, make a circle around the perimeter of the Park Natalie, and back the same way with the river on the right. The entire track is a paving stone or tile (No asphalt or soil)
Of the location features of Obolon Runday:
– a lot of runners at this time (not less than on Trukhaniv island)
– be carefull at the area of promenade because of slippy sand (but this is seasonal phenomenon and takes no more than 10% of the route)
Please keep in mind that Runday Obolon is held on public paths used by other park visitors. Please respect their space. This will not affect your result, or stop you from achieving a ‘personal best’ but it will help to give a good impression of our races.
Safety on the road:
We try to make our races as safe as possible but when running please pay attention to other road users, cars and the usual hazards you can find on Ukrainian roads/paths. A first Aid kit is available at all races.
If you need to change or store some clothes or things that you don’t need while running, you can leave them near to starting/finishing point. Our volunteers alvays stay there and will keep your things safe.
