On May 30, the Lisi Trail Race will be held for both experienced and beginner runners.
The race offers the full distance of 19 kilometers (1,000m elevation gain) as well as shorter 10 kilometers (650m elevation gain) and 6.5 kilometers (250m elevation gain) fun distances for those who want to run less.
All three distances will start near the Tsodoreti Dry Lake. Routes of the full and short distances follow the trail in the forest up to the top of one of the highest peaks in Tbilisi. Then the route descends to Mskhaldidi Lake, where participants of the 10km distance race run around the lake and head back to the start/finish location. 19km distance participants continue their way towards Lomis Seri, Bevreti Gorge, and then the finish location.
The 6.5-kilometer fun distance route goes into the hills opposite the 19 and 10 km routes.
The routes for all three distances will be marked and refreshment points will be available at several points along with it.
All the finishers of the full distance will receive ITRA points for qualifying for different international trail races and for competing with their peers.
