Kiev Running Festival April 2020
5th edition of GGxEuro
After a very successful trip to Sofia with 90 amazing GoodGymers painting Bulgaria red, we are off to Kiev!
We're off to the capital of Ukrainian next April, with the races taking place on Sunday 5th April. This will be the 5th year GGxEuro Trip - come make it awesome! We will be bringing you:
- 4-5 day's in an Eastern-European City
- With various race distances - 10km or Half Marathon (21km)
- Good food, good drinks and GREAT company!
- Sunday Group Dinner
Entries are now open:
- Half Marathon - currently £22.
- 10k - currently £19.
- Half Marathon Relay - currently £110 between four.
Flights: The only direct flights I can currently find are from London. I'd recommend:
- Ryanair out (Friday 3rd April) from Stansted
- Ukraine International back (Tuesday 7th April)
They are a bit more expensive than I'd like. But this will even out with the cheap accommodation, reasonable race cost and cheap food/drink.
Spreadsheet: It helps for us to know who is coming and what you are all doing. Therefore please fill in this spreadsheet here.
To inspire you to sign up for the trip of a lifetime we'll leave you with these quotes about Sofia 2019:
Dharmesh: "I mostly just drank rakia and had fun with Rob Riley, it was the best!"
Helena & Ed: "We've basically been every year to the GGxEuro trip and it's the foundation of our relationship!"
Ben Annear: "It's not Wales but it'll do!"
Please note these words may not have actually ever been said..
Also please note that this event/race is not organised by the GoodGym Race Team and its not part of the big six races for 2020. This event is organised by Paul Bown (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Looking forward to it!
