A beautiful weather welcomed runners this Saturday 24.4. at the first edition of Pilsen Trail Brdy. Due to covid-19 limitations, the participants were running individually and measured their times themselves.
Therefore it was more about enjoying the beautiful Brdy nature rather than time counting. However, many runners were competing as usually! All of them praised great courses, Brdy sceneries and ideal running weather. Even though the registration was voluntary and many people participated without registering, the organisers have recorded more than 160 registered participants. Thanks to everyone for respecting the covid-19 rules.
Jan Karban (Salomon/Suunto) was the fastest on the longest 40km course climbing over Třemošná, Jordán, Tok and Praha (time 3:02:25), followed by Jan Hradecký (Triatlon Team Příbram) at 3h 10 min and Zdeňek Šulc (behnenijenobehani.cz) at 3:25.
