Розпочалася реєстрація учасників велосипедного ультрамарафону «TransUkraїne 2022»
Registration of participants of the TransUkraine 2022 bicycle ultramarathon, which will start on June 4 next year in Irpen, starts today. This was reported by the website of the sporting event.
"Ultramarathon for the brave. About 1,500 km in places most of us have never been. You will see our country from a completely different angle. We connect Ukraine with a picturesque route, which we will ride together on bicycles, "the website states.
The marathon will last two weeks. This time the organizers rent 200 GPS trackers from the Dutch company. This will increase safety, allow spectators to follow the participants, and riders will be able to see the overall picture of the movement.
For the third time, the Brave Society is the general sponsor of the bike ride.
It will be recalled that this year TransUkraine started on June 26 in the central square of Irpen and finished in Lviv. 185 athletes took part in it. The marathon was organized with the support of Irpin City Council and Mayor Oleksandr Markushin.
The first ultramarathon "TransUkraine" took place in 2020. Its participants started in Novgorod-Siversky (Chernihiv region), drove through Irpin and finished in Uzhgorod.
During 2021, six national and international bicycle events for adults and two bicycle races for children took place in Irpen. The general sponsor of almost all these events was the Society of the Brave. The company and the Irpin City Council were also the main partners of the 50-kilometer route of the Kyiv Weaving Bicycle Race.
