This year’s competition will be held already on July 9. Electronic registration is in progress. It is worthwhile to hurry up with the registration, as starting July 1 the starting fees will increase.

Piotr Książkiewicz, race organizer:

TriCity Trail is an opportunity to explore the amazing terrain that is the forests of the Gdansk Forest District. We have prepared three routes, with different lengths and levels of difficulty. We provide a solid portion of approaches and climbs, in a charming environment, but also a lot of flat, pleasant sections and an intimate atmosphere. Our goal is not only to showcase the TriCity forests, but also to encourage regular activity. Pandemic has aggravated many health problems of Polish women and men. Many people have abandoned sports. Therefore, we feel that our role – those who promote physical activity in nature – is currently even greater than before 2020.
