The Stirnu Buks challenge was designed to prepare its participants for the trail running season. Rimants, the leader of Stirnu Buks, invites: “Train and run on trails, enjoying the contrasts of nature and meeting the most beautiful landscapes of Latvia on the mountain tops and plains.”
Running the trails is exciting – it is both challenging and allows you to experience the beauty of nature. At the same time, it is a complex sport that includes various running surfaces and changing running conditions! Like in other sports, trail runners must take time for training and preparation so as not to cause unnecessary injuries and achieve better results!
