The trail runs along the Markoth ridge. On the ridge there is a natural monument - Sheskhariskoe

juniper woodland. This is where the trail of the same name Markoth will pass. The track is one of the most difficult. Saturated with various reliefs and surfaces. Forests, mountains, steep climbs, slopes up to 48% are changing. ITRA points are awarded for passing.

Expert judgment: Markoth is an excellent track for professionals and experienced trail enthusiasts. The variety of terrain and weather will not leave anyone indifferent. For beginners, the race will be a real challenge. Changing mountains to plains, forests to swamps, scorching sun to icy wind will quickly bring to clean water all the missed training sessions and training shortcomings. Here you need to objectively assess your strength and choose the route to reach the end. It should be remembered that this is an extreme race, - the head of the RussiaRunning Services direction Grigory Krichmara shared with the editors.
