Please indicate the dates of your stay, preferred time slots for your runs, your current fitness level, including current training goals, and a preferred tour (if any). Depending on the pace that's comfortable to you, we can slightly adjust the routes to make sure you see and enjoy Kyiv Running Tours and still put in enough miles to stay within your training schedule. We will pick you up at the hotel lobby or meet you at some place in a downtown. For longer trail runs we shall travel 20 to 30 minutes bycar to a park/trail and then bring you back to the hotel.
