Kicking off the 2021 racing season with a highly competitive event will allow the athletes to run alongside prominent national trail running professionals and transform that valuable experience into a boost to their performance for the rest of the year.

“I am excited to attend because it is a Golden Trail Series event and also because of the support and endorsement that Oax Sport gives me to represent my state in this opening competition of the series. I have always liked to test how far I can take my body physically and emotionally in races. I feel prepared to go to this demanding competition and add more experience in the 50 km ultra distance”.
